The ruling Jubilee party has been stopped from removing nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura’s name from the membership list of the party.
In a statement released earlier today, the Court directed President Kenyatta-led party to halt the firing of the legislator until the case he filed is heard and determined.
The nominated senator sued the Jubilee party and the registrar of political parties after his expulsion and subsequent deregistration from the membership list.
“The applicant under certificate of urgency is seeking a stay of execution of the orders of the political parties tribunal dated March 26, 2021. I have considered the application, the supporting affidavit, further affidavit, and the annexures and I find the matter to be urgent “There shall be a stay of execution of the impugned orders until the hearing of the application,” read the statement in part.
Mwaura was also ordered to supply the application to the two respondents.
This is after 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.
Mwaura’s troubles began after the Jubilee Party’s national chair Nelson Dzuya complained that he had been disloyal, shifting his allegiance to the UDA despite being nominated by the Jubilee Party.
The Senator was suspended in the company of Mary Seneta, Falhada Dekow Iman, Naomi Jillo Waqo, Victor Prengei, Millicent Omanga, and Christine Gona.
They were subsequently grilled by the party’s disciplinary committee over the claims before resulting in expulsion.
