The battle between Uhuru and Ruto’s camps have shifted focus to jubilee’s finances with dp’s camp accusing the ruling party of misappropriation of funds.
The Dp’s camp has alleged that the ruling party lacks transparency and accountability ,has misappropriated party resources and there are chances that it is involved in graft.
The dp allies have therefore demanded that financial documents be presented to them ,without which they’ll go to court.
Jubilee secretary general however termed the move a desperate political posturing.
“I have received your letter in which you demand to be furnished with audited accounts of the Jubilee Party. You have signed off as the deputy secretary general.
“All these expose an extreme form of megalomaniac behaviour. Unfortunately, in this office, we do not have the capacity or qualification to deal with such malady,” said Tuju.
The deputy party leader of Jubilee is demanding a four year certified bank statements among other things.
Sources say that Kositany is one of the allies of Ruto that have been marked for ouster.
Kositany further alleged in an interview with one of the dailies that some time back in 2018,jubilee withdrew ksh 183 million in just a span of 6 months.
He said that despite not using the whole storey building where jubilee is based ,the party pays for it whole.
Kositany went ahead to say that jubilee party county offices are allocated millions as per the financial documents although they aren’t operational.
Further he claims that the party pays Sh67 million rent for the party headquarters, yet the space was initially passed off as a campaign gift.
He is now demanding a schedule of all county offices paid by the party for the last four financial years, complete with lease agreements.
“We demand the lease or tenancy agreement for the headquarters premises in Pangani interchange and schedule of all paid rent for the financial year 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019 and 2019-2020,” he stated.
“We demand copies of all expenditure incurred and paid for, for the financial year 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019 and 2019-2020. Provide all schedules and sub-schedules thereto.”
In a quick reply, Tuju stated “In any case, you should be addressing such issues to the office of Alfred Kipkorir Mutai, who is the treasurer and a member of NEC just like you.”
According to Tuju their financial documents are clean having been audited by the Auditor General.
“Currently, we are only waiting for the certificate from the new Auditor General for the period covering the accounts for 2018-2019,” Tuju stated.
He directed Kositany to go get the documents from the auditor general or registration of political parties as they are public.
He added that it is impossible for the party to receive political party funds without compliance.
