Still reveling and basking in the glory that came with his recent victory which saw him recover his Senate seat that he had previously lost, Isaac Mwaura is now releasing details about his struggles. He claimed that in his bid to reclaim the nominated seat which he believes he had lost unfairly, he faced incredibly powerful individuals but was able to defeat them all because of a formidable support system. Surprisingly, he didn’t credit his current idol DP William Ruto with this, but somewhere else.
Isaac Mwaura was speaking while making an appearance on Radio Jambo’s weekly political show Mazungumzo Wazi Wazi which was hosted by the station’s presenter, Bramwell Mwololo. Alongside Mwaura in the studio were former ANC party member number turned ODM member Ruth Ambogo self-proclaimed Wala Nyasi leader and Deputy President William Ruto supporter Gerald Bitok, and Amani National Congress party Nairobi Chapter Chairman Brian Mulama.
The Ruiru parliamentary seat aspirant said that even as his court case was proceeding, he wasn’t blind to the fact that he was facing people who wielded immense power and unrivaled influence. Nevertheless, he attributed his victory to God who he said stood by him and supported him through everything.
Mwaura was among six senators expelled from Jubilee party early this year on allegations of disciplinary violations as per article 13 of the party constitution.
He however moved to the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal (PPDT) seeking to bar the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP) from implementing Jubilee Party’s decision of removing his name from the party list, pending the hearing of his case.
But the tribunal threw out the request, ruling that Jubilee had followed due process in his ouster.
Unsatisfied with the ruling, Mwaura moved to court and obtained an injunction order halting any further step of his removal.
March this year, the High court temporarily stopped his expulsion. Following Jubilee’s decision, Mwaura at the time lost his seat following this move, as Lusaka gazetted his seat vacant and the party then gazetted senator Sammy Leshore.
He then moved to the High Court seeking to have the execution of the Speaker’s decision overturned.
Last month, however, the court squashed the decision by the party to have him de-registered. The court concluded that Jubilee party’s national disciplinary committee processes and the decision that followed, were unlawful.
