Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura and five others lose bid to block ejection from Jubilee

By Robert Abong'o | March 26th 2021

The Political Parties Disputes Tribunal has thrown out an application filed by Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura (pictured) seeking to bar the Registrar of Political Parties from implementing Jubilee Party’s decision to expel him and five other nominated Senators.

On Monday, February 8, 2021, Jubilee Party settled on expelling six nominated Senators over disciplinary violations.

The senators who include Isaac Mwaura, Mary Seneta, Falhada Dekow Iman, Naomi Jillo Waqo, Victor Prengei, Millicent Omanga and Christine Gona were expelled by the National Management Committee (NMC) after deliberating on the reports submitted by the Party Disciplinary Committee.

According to a statement signed by Party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju, the six had appeared before the disciplinary committee last year and this year over insubordination and gross misconduct.

“The NMC in exercising its mandate as provided for under Article 7(2a) of the party constitution and relying on other enabling provisions of the same constitution has expelled the senators,” read the statement seen by Standard Digital.

The NMC said expulsions take effect immediately, adding that it had communicated the same to the Senate and the Registrar of Political Parties.

The party organ, however, told the senators they were free to appeal the decision.
