Jubilee Party has put on notice two other nominated Nairobi County Assembly MCAs in a purge targeting ward reps allied to embattled Governor Mike Sonko.
The two pro-Sonko, Ruth Ndumi Maingi and Beatrice Waithera Gakunyi, have been put on the chopping board for defaulting paying monthly party subscription fees since October 2017 amounting to Ksh340,000.
In a letter dated November 30, 2020 and copied to the Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu, Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju and National Disciplinary Committee chairman Muchai Lumatate, Jubilee Party Nairobi Regional Director Ms Susan Mugwe warned the MCAs that disciplinary action will be taken against them should they fail to remit the dues.
Mugwe stated that their action amounts to indiscretion to the party and is contrary to Article 13 of the Jubilee Party Constitution and the Code of Conduct they signed.
“Whereas the Jubilee members of Nairobi County Assembly have been making their monthly remittance for the period October 2017 to date, you have reneged, refused and/or defaulted altogether. Aware of your commitments to the party, note that your action and failure to remit party subscriptions constitutes imprudence towards the party.”
“You are therefore required to make immediate payment of Sh170,000 to the account provided. In default thereof, you show cause why disciplinary action should not be taken against you in writing within seven days of receipt of this letter. In the event that you do not do so, a decision will be made, your cooperation notwithstanding,” reads the letter in part.
This comes barely a week after the ruling party suspended to nominated MCAs allied to Governor Sonko.
Ann Thumbi, Silvia Museiya and Millicent Jagero were suspended from the party for three months on Tuesday, November 24 for what was termed as undermining party position.
They were also removed from various committees they have been serving in at the County Assembly for six months.
The three MCAs were accused of going against the party position on the 2020/2021 Budget and the Memorandum from the Governor on the Nairobi County Appropriation Bill, 2020.
