"I forgive all those who stood in the way of justice," Isaac Mwaura on his comeback to the Senate

1st December, 2021

Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura is back to the Senate after Speaker Kenneth Lusaka announced his reinstatement today. In a statement seen by The Standard, the Senator thanked the courts for exercising democracy after the ruling party had expelled him in an “unprocedural manner.”

&ldquo I decided to move to court because of the fact that my rights as provided for in our Constitution had been infringed. What followed was a long legal battle that has lasted for seven months. The resultant gazette notices and the purported replacement have since been quashed and can therefore not confer any rights. They have been declared null and void. This to me is the true test of our parliamentary democracy,” he said.

Mwaura’s seat had, on May 10 this year, been declared vacant by the Speaker after Jubilee, the political party that sponsored him to Senate, expelled him over alleged indiscipline.
