“Kindly reach out to the owner of the property. Jubilee Party is a tenant. If the property is auctioned, we will simply relocate to a new building," Jubilee Party Secretary-General Jeremiah Kioni told Standard Digital when we sought his comment.

"Under instructions received from the chargee's advocates, we shall sell by public auction the undermentioned properties, together with buildings and improvements erected thereon," noted the auctioneers.

Kioni said the building didn’t belong to the Jubilee party which is only a tenant.

“Please get in touch with the property owners to get more information about the auction. Jubilee Party will simply move to a new building if the building is put up for auction because we do not own it, Kioni clarified.
