Following the decision by the ruling Jubilee party to suspend six of its dissident members amid cries of gross violation of the party constitution and misconduct, nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura has been deregistered.
The registrar of political parties removed Isaac Mwaura’s name from the Jubilee party membership list
A notice from the registrar of Political Parties Ann Nderitu to the party secretary-general indicated that it is waiting for the adoption and ratification of the same by the National Executive Committee.
The registrar pegged its decision on the party disciplinary committee report of February 6 as well as the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal ruling on March 26
Senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka is expected to declare the seat vacant, paving way for IEBC to start the process of replacing the fired senator.
The nomination list already submitted to the body IEBC before the general election is already locked with the parties barred from nominating outside
“IEBC will pick from the party list and Gazette notice just the same way the registrar will do on the changes. It is within the rights of the nominees to vacate their nomination or be nominated, despite being in breach of the requirements like gender and regional balance,” said a senior official at the office of the registrar.
Mwaura’s woes began last month after the party summoned the senators over indiscipline and disloyalty.
Others are Mary Seneta, Falhada Dekow Iman, Naomi Jillo Waqo, Victor Prengei, Millicent Omanga and Christine Gona.
