Jubilee axe has now been extended to the
East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) in a bid to ensure that only those who fully accept its policies and principles are retained.
In the past few months ,tension has been witnessed within the ruling party with the allies of Deputy president dropped from key parliamentary positions.
Others have also faced the disciplinary committee.
Members of the Party in the EALA who have not been making their monthly subscription to the party now have a reason to worry.
They risk losing their seats.
Among the jubilee members at the regional assembly include;
former MPs Simon Mbugua (Kamukunji), Mpuru Aburi (Tigania East),
ex Nyandarua Woman Rep Wanjiku Muhia,
Noor Mohammed Adan
Accordin’g to the party’s regional director,only Mr. Aburi has updated his contributions.
The party secretary general, Raphael Tuju on Monday through a letter, notified the Legislators of intention to start disciplinary proceedings against them.
The Legislators are expected to remit to the party 20,000 on monthly basis.
However,3 of them have defaulted for the last 31 months with Ms Muhia only paying ksh 100,000.
The three now owes the party a total of Sh2,380,000 for the last 31 months.
“This is a formal notification to you as Member of Parliament East Africa Legislative Assembly of Jubilee Party that you have defaulted in your remittance of your monthly subscriptions.”
“According to our records, you have defaulted to remit your party subscriptions amounting to Sh620,000 as at July 2020,” read one of the letters signed by Mr Tuju.
In a letter signed by Mr. Tuju,the Legislators are expected to respond within Seven days,without which disciplinary action shall be taken against them.
“Take notice that you are in breach of Jubilee Party Constitution and your actions attract a penalty including but not limited to suspension or revocation of your nomination and sponsorship. Note that you signed acceptance of the terms of membership and nominations,” the notices read in part.
The letter further states that “take notice that unless you make immediate payment of Sh620,000, disciplinary proceedings shall be commenced against you without any further reference to you at your detriment.”
The notices were copied to acting Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu, Eala Speaker in Arusha, Tanzania, Martin Ngoga, Jubilee National Disciplinary Committee Chairman Lumatete Muchai and the Regional Director – Eala, Stephen Mwanga.
In the letter,Tuju invoked a section of the constitution that states that “Disciplinary action shall be instituted against a member in cases of failure to make remittance or pay dues to the party.”
