Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura re-admitted to the senate

Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura has been re-admitted to the senate after successfully fighting against his expulsion in the high court.

Mwaura lost  his seat  after the Jubilee  Party expunged his name from the party membership list in May. The Political Party Dispute Tribunal affirmed the party’s decision, however, Mwaura moved to the High Court. The high court  quashed Gazette notice number 4597 by the Speaker of the Senate Kenneth Lusaka that declared his position vacant. The ruling also quashed gazette notice no. 4598 dated May 11, 2021, by the Chairperson of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Wafula Chebukati which appointed Sammy Prisa Leshore to replace Mwaura as a member of the senate representing people living with disability. In his communication to the house this morning Lusaka said the rule of law must prevail.
