Jubilee Makes Crucial Announcement Over Elachi Drama

  • The Jubilee Party through its secretary-general Raphael Tuju on Wednesday, October 16, made its final decision regarding the drama around Nairobi speaker Beatrice Elachi.

    The party had convened a meeting of the party's conflict resolution committee in order to review the issue.

    Tuju announced that the party would stand in solidarity with Elachi as the speaker of the County Assembly of Nairobi.

    Jubilee Sec-Gen Raphael Tuju speaks to the press on Wednesday October 5 after the meeting to support Elachi.

    He further stated that any other disputes from members were to be handled by the conflict resolution committee of the party.

    Elachi was embroiled in a protracted battle with majority leader Abdi Guyo that saw her impeached as the county assembly speaker only to be reinstated by the court.

    After resuming office, Elachi's first course of action was to assent to a letter that sought to replace Guyo as the majority leader.

    The letter had been prepared by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and seconded by Tuju before Elachi hit the final nail on Guyo's majority leadership coffin.

    Guyo was replaced by Hamza Maringo MCA Mark Ndung'u.
