Jubilee County Executives from Mount Kenya Demand Meeting President Uhuru Kenyatta

  • Over 190 Jubilee Party officials have demanded to meet President Uhuru Kenyatta to discuss emerging cracks in the party.

    The party officials led by 10 Senior county bosses from the central region demanded the meeting after they were angered by the secretariat's way of managing the party.

    According to the party officials, the secretariat led by Raphael Tuju was micromanaging the party and disregarding the leadership of the county teams at the grassroots.

    The Chairman of the group, Mr Alhaji Mwendia on his part accused the party of ignoring them and putting county Jubilee officials in the dark in key happenings at the party.

    “The secretariat has been very economical on the flow of information, the secretariat is not the party but employees of the party and must respect us,” Mwendia stated.

    The leaders also took a swipe for the delayed payment of polling clerks that were used in the nominations stating that it was a plot to rob the contracted officials of their money.

    “They should be paid before Tuesday and this is a demand. We think this is done deliberately for some people to benefit from what they did work for,” the Chairman stated.

    Mr Mureithi Kang'ara, a member of the team, raised concern with the management of funds in the party stating that a lot of money was raised during the nominations and nothing was sent to the grassroots to help improve branch offices.

    "The party raised a lot of money from aspirants. They should have kept 50 per cent and released the rest to promote their branch offices,” Kang'ara stated.

    The team gave Jubilee a seven-day ultimatum to address and respond to the grievances failure to which they would march to the party offices to protest.
