he Registrar of Political Parties has removed Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura’s name from Jubilee Party’s membership list.
In a letter addressed to Jubilee Party secretary general Raphael Tuju, the registrar said that she took the step pending the adoption and ratification of the same by the party’s National Executive Committee.
The RPP based its decision on the party disciplinary committee report dated February 6 as well as the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal ruling on March 26.
The act of the registrar striking off a name from a party’s membership list means Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka will declare the seat vacant. This will consequently pave way for IEBC to start the process of replacing the fired senators.
Nomination lists from political parties submitted to the IEBC before the General Election are closed and, therefore, the concerned party cannot nominate other people outside the list.
Last month, the party summoned the senator over indiscipline and disloyal. Mwaura had been dragged to the disciplinary committee after Jubilee Party’s national chair Nelson Dzuya complained he had been disloyal.
Chairman Nelson Dzuya had told the disciplinary committee chaired by lawyer Muchai Lumatete that Senator Mwaura had pledged allegiance United to Democratic Alliance, a party associated with Deputy President William Ruto and the hustler movement.
