SEE ALSO :Raila runs into protest against taxTwo weeks ago the Registrar of Political Parties gazetted Mr Kibaki as PNU leader, ending Munya’s leadership of the party. The notice also replaced seven other officials elected alongside Munya last year. According to the Gazette notice, the change of PNU leadership followed a June 20, 2017 judgment by the Political Parties Dispute Tribunal. The gazette notice names the bona fide PNU officials as John Kamama (Chairman), Irene Muronji (1st Vice chairperson), Paul Amayo (2nd Vice chairperson), John Anunda (Secretary General), Alphonse Musyoki (Organising Secretary), Mwajuma Rajab (Secretary, Finance), Genery Wando (Deputy Treasurer), Anna Chebet (Director of Elections), Prisca Mwita (National Women Chairperson), Beatrice Cherono (National Youth Chairperson) and Agnes Toya (NEC member). In October 2016 Munya was elected PNU leader during a National Delegates Conference that was disputed by some party officials. Munya and other officials were gazetted in April 2017 on the strength of court orders directing the Registrar of Political Parties to gazette them. In Munya’s camp were: Secretary General John Okemwa, Paul Rukaria (Deputy Secretary General), Sheikh Juma Ngao (National vice chairman), David Kamau (National vice chairman-operations), Peter Kaberia National Treasurer), Anastacia Munyendo (Deputy National Treasurer) and National organising Secretary Stephen Koskei.
