Registrar of Political Parties Ann Nderitu speaks on Jubilee Party leadership wrangles

With the Jubilee Party wrangles deepening further, the Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu has distanced herself from the leadership contest in the party saying her actions follow the law.

Nderitu defended her actions to uphold the NEC resolutions forwarded by the Kanini Kega-led faction that removed Secretary-General Jeremiah Kioni and Vice Chair David Murathe from the party.

"Ours is just to confirm that they have followed the process and party constitution; the decision is not ours it is the party's," said Nderitu.

The registrar affirmed that the Kega-led team that carried that ousted the aforementioned duo had followed the law.

The matter is however at the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal at the High Court.

"There are cases that have already been filed; we shall be defending our actions and we have done it before," she said.

The ruling by the Registrar that was made on Friday  May 19 and submitted to the Jubilee party on May 22 has been a point of contention, with the Kioni faction claiming the Registrar was being used by the ruling coalition.

"The decision was made on Friday but since it was a weekend we made that communication on Monday," said Nderitu.

On Tuesday, former Member of Parliament Kioni presented to the registrar the resolutions made at the National Delegates Conference on Monday that among others kicked out the rebel MPs led by Kanini Kega.

Nderitu says she has set up a team to go through the day's events and the minutes to see whether the meeting was lawfully convened and whether the resolutions will stand.

"Yes we have set up a team our legal team is going through those minutes," she said.

The matter is now in court.
