He is no longer legally the party leader- Jubilee chairman explain how Uhuru storming the police will affect him.
Jubilee party Chairman, Nelson Dzuya argued that the former president, Uhuru Kenyatta, could be holding the coalition office illegally since he is already retired.
Dzuya cited that the constitution entails in the Presidential Retirement Benefits Act Section 6(1) that a former Head of should not hold public and political office six months after exiting the top job.
He added that the coalition will now have a sit down with its members and deliberate what is the best way to handle Uhuru Kenyatta’s case.
He stated,” By operation of the law, therefore, it can be argued that he is no longer legally the party leader of Jubilee Party.”
“That said, this is probably a matter that ought to be considered by the relevant party organs and a decision made for the benefit of the members of our party,” he added
Dzuya further reprimanded Uhuru Kenyatta citing that being the founder of the coalition, he has never taken a step to unite its members even as the party wrangles were witnessed by the whole country.
He stated,”He has never called or chaired any organ of the Jubilee Party since the National Delegates Convention (NDC) held on February 26, 2022.”
“It was therefore horrifying to see him emerge for the first time since that NDC in the manner in which he did yesterday,” he added.
This come after Former President Uhuru Kenyatta, surprisingly visited the Jubilee headquarters.
He called for peace among the members, however, urged anyone who wants to leave the party, to do so freely.
He stated,”Anyone who wants to leave a party can join another. We have no quarrel with anyone. We want to guard our party, and those who do not want, are free to leave.”
