Isaac Mwaura loses his Nominated Senator Seat.

Published

In late March, the High Court in Nairobi temporarily stopped Mr. Mwaura’s expulsion after he moved to court to challenge the ouster which was pegged on grounds of disciplinary violations.

“That pending the hearing and determination of this application inter partes, the first respondent, 2nd respondent, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and the Speaker of the Senate be and hereby barred from implementing the decision of the 1st and 2nd respondent,” the ruling reads.

The Jubilee party was named as the 1st respondent while the Registrar of Political Parties was named as the 2nd respondent. The case will be heard on April 15, 2021.

On February 8 this year, Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju said the National Management Committee (NMC) had met and deliberated on a report filed by the party’s disciplinary committee.

“The NMC in exercising its mandate provided or under article 7 (2a) of the party’s constitution and relying on other enabling provisions of the party law has expelled the following senators, ” the statement read.

Those expelled include nominated Senators: Isaac Mwaura, Seneta Mary Yiane, Waqo Naomi Jilo, Omanga Millicent, Prengei Victor, Iman Dekow and Gona Christine Zawadi.

The statement further noted that the expulsion was immediate but noted that the legislators still reserve their right to make an appeal.

“The expulsions are with immediate effect and have been communicated to the Senate and the registrar of political parties,” Tuju said.

In May last year, the senators were under fire after claims that they snubbed an invitation to a meeting at the State House without offering apologies.

The meeting was attended by 20 senators including Kenya African National Union (Kanu) party leader Gideon Moi.

“Mwai Kibaki borrowed KSh 244.8 Billion in his first 7 years in office while Uhuru Kenyatta has borrowed KSh 5.17 Trillion in his first 7 years in office. Worrying trend perhaps,” said Mr. Ninja

“During Kibaki’s time we used to have a budget deficit of 400B that was easily raised by the Judiciary, other govt fees, and small borrowing…now we have a deficit of 1.7 Trillion. The deficit is bigger than Kibaki’s last entire budget. Tano Terror! Kusema na kutenda.” Said Mama JJ.
