Jubilee Party elected leaders have resolved to establish an internal party mechanism that will see the outfit investigate the issue of Ksh 700, 000, 000 party funds that went missing during last year’s presidential campaigns.
The former ruling party on Wednesday in Nairobi held a Party Leadership Summit convened by the National Executive Committee in conjunction with the National and County Elected Leadership.
In a statement the leaders who firmly backed the resolution to exit the Azimio Coalition hit out at former president Uhuru Kenyatta, accusing him of dictatorship and blamed him for the party’s dismal performance in the last elections.
”We firmly support the resolution of NEC to exit the abusive Azimio coalition and will abide by the orders of the High Court that has suspended that process until the hearing and determination of the legal matters in court,” the statement reads in part.
”Jubilee Party rejects the dictatorial one-man leadership that characterized the affairs of our party between 2017 and 2022 and that led to our dismal performance in the 2022 general election, Jubilee Ni Sisi! Jubilee Ni Yetu.”
On NADCO report, today’s meeting by the Sabina Chege-led faction acknowledged the concerns of all Kenyans regarding the high cost of living and vowed to support all efforts by the government to stabilize the country’s economy.
They also threw their weight behind calls to entrench the CDF and Ward Funds into the constitution and will rally all its elected leaders behind the same.
”We affirm that Jubilee party stands for the peaceful resolution of all national issues of concern and support the report of the National Dialogue Committee, and further reiterate the contents of the memorandum presented by our party to the Committee calling among other things the entrenchment in the constitution of the CDF and Ward Funds and urge our Parliamentary Group to champion the welfare of Kenyans and MCAs as they debate the report in Parliament.”
Jubilee Party is currently the third largest party in Parliament after UDA and ODM, with 28 Members in the National Assembly, 5 Senators, and 126 Members of the County Assembly.
