Sonko Celebrates Jubilee Party Fallout
Former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has celebrated the fallout in Jubilee after the party suspended Vice-Chairman David Murathe, Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni the National Treasurer Kagwe Gichohi.
Sonko, via a tweet, said that this time God had decided to deal with his enemies.
This is after Jubilee Party’s National Executive Council (NEC) on Friday announced the suspension of the three leaders. The Jubilee NEC said this was due to their conduct of the political outfit’s affairs.
The announcement was made after a meeting was held at the Sarova Woodlands Hotel in Nakuru. Fourteen of its twenty-one members attended. East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) legislator Kanini Kega was appointed the acting new Secretary General. Eldas MP Adan Keynan was appointed the acting vice chairman taking over from Murathe.
The NEC was chaired by Nelson Dzuya, who addressed the media after the meeting.
Dzuya accused Kioni of bringing the party issuing disciplinary letters without consulting the party members and following clear procedures.
Sonko’s 2022 Resignation
The former Nairobi boss tendered his resignation from the party last year after being elected on the party ticket in 2017. In his resignation letter, Sonko stated that it was his voluntary decision to cut ties with the political outfit.
“Please accept this letter as my formal notice of resignation as a member of the Jubilee party effective March 10, 2022. This is an exercise of my rights to belong to a political party of my choice as enshrined under the constitution of Kenya,” read part of the resignation letter.
His woes in the party had begun immediately after becoming Nairobi governor in 2017, leading to his eventual impeachment.
Just the other day, the controversial politician celebrated the alleged raid of former Interior CS Fred Matiang’is house.
