Jubilee Woes: Registrar of Political Parties Confirm Changes As Ruto Loses War against Uhuru Kenyatta

In a bid to block the changes proposed by Jubilee party, William Ruto had a setback after the Registrar of political parties Anne Nderitu approved the proposed changes, terming them valid and constitutional.

April 17 — According to a report published on the standard newspaper, the Registrar of political parties approved the proposed changes that were gazetted on Monday, April 6 — in which the Jubilee party appointed a new national management committee.

“The intention to change the Jubilee Party’s nomination management committee followed the law. For us, we look at the documents and confirm if they have been signed by the relevant officials, and in this case, that was done,” Nderitu approved.

Deputy President and his allies led a campaign to tear down the gazette notice, which announced that four new officials — Lucy Nyawira Macharia, Marete Marangu, Walter Nyambati, James Nampaso, and James Waweru would assume office.

However, William Ruto denied attacking President Uhuru Kenyatta, arguing that the proposed changes were made by disloyal Jubilee Officials.

“The President and party leader of the Jubilee Party did not and cannot be a party to any fraudulent and illegal changes to officials of our party. This is the work of political rejects, conmen, fraudsters whose party allegiance is already elsewhere. They should give us a break and leave the Jubilee Party alone,” Ruto argued.

DP disclosed that the Jubilee Secretary-General and some officials had hatched a plan to remove him from Jubilee party — 146 MPs and Senators affiliated to DP had signed a petition to stop the changes.

“The letter to make the changes was written on March 23 and noise around the reply by the registrar is unwarranted,” Tuju hit back in an interview with NTV

April 16 — MPs and senators allied to Ruto visited the Registrar of political party’s office in order to verify the documents that legally backed the proposed changes. The legislatures accused Rafael Tuju of misleading the party leader.

“We don’t favor anyone, but all we want is fairness. NEC has not had a meeting for three years. So we want to see the documents that gave the Registrar the legal backing. Jubilee is not private property. The issue is not even the process but the documents,” Jubilee deputy secretary-general Caleb Kositany noted.

“The President, who is the party leader, should convene the meeting and, in his absence, the deputy leader (Ruto). But Tuju and the deep state are misleading the President that if he convenes a meeting, he will be embarrassed,” Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria lamented.
