The Jubilee party has announced new appointees to its National Executive Council (NEC) board.
In the new changes announced by Jubilee party Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni, some of the outgoing NEC members are Jimmy Angwenyi, Naomi Shaban, Nelson Nzuya, Joshua Kuttuny, Mutava Musymi and Kanini Kega.
Others are Sabina Chege, Rachel Nyamai, Advice Mundalo, Joel Kibe and Wangoi Gichuru.
The aforesaid persons will be replaced by Beatrice Gambo, Maoka Maore, Joseph Manje, Saitoti Torome, Yassin Nur and blogger Pauline Njoroge.
Others new entrants are Jamleck Kamau, Maison Lechome, Agnes Nthumbi (Youth League), Anthony Manyara, Nderitu Mureithi and Amina Ugdon Siyad (Parliamentary Secretary).
During a National Delegates Conference (NDC) held at the Ngong Racecourse on Monday, Kioni noted that the party has opted to make the changes after it observed that some of its members have proved to be disloyal to the party.
Kioni stated that on April 28, 2023, a NEC meeting was convened and the members sitting on the board were a no-show.
It was in that meeting, Kioni added, where they resolved that the positions ought to be filled with loyal, faithful and trustworthy members who are in support of the party’s interests.
“They are holding the positions and they have shown that their loyalty is not with us but with others,” he said.
The outgoing members, according to Kioni, have either shown allegiance to other parties, resigned from the positions, or have been appointed to other commissions.
On his part, retired President Uhuru Kenyatta asked the rebel Jubilee Party members to resign from their seats and move on in peace.
Speaking at the Jubilee Party NDC, Uhuru told the rebel members to leave the party instead of engaging in wrangles.
Uhuru, who is the Jubilee party leader, said the rebels can no longer continue to enjoy the fruits of the party when they have betrayed its leadership.
The former President, who moved to stamp his authority as the leader of the former ruling party, said going forward they will embrace peace.
