Office of Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP) has allowed the expulsion of Jeremiah Kioni, David Murathe and Kagwe Gichohi, from the Jubilee party.
In a letter addressed to Jubilee deputy secretary general Joshua Kuttuny, Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu noted that the Kanini Kega-led faction had followed the party constitution in kicking out the trio.
“It is further noted that the party concluded the disciplinary processes against Hon. Jeremiah Kioni, Hon. David Murathe, and Mr. Kagwe Gichohi, wherein they participated in line with Section 14B (2) of the Political Parties Act, 2011 (PPA),” said Ms Nderitu.
“Consequently, the party expelled Hon. Kioni, Hon. Murathe and suspended Mr. Kagwe. Following a review of the submitted documents in line with the PPA and the party constitution, this Office is satisfied that the party adhered to due process.”
