Kega further stated that the Jubilee Party has communicated to the Speaker of the National Assembly, informing him that the party’s leadership in the House remains the same following the changes made by Uhuru on May 22.

During the Uhuru led NDC, Jubilee party announced new appointees to its National Executive Council (NEC) board after some members showed allegiance to other parties.

In the changes, Nominated MP Sabina Chege was replaced by Embakasi West MP as Deputy Minority Whip in the National Assembly.

Nominated MP Sabina Chege and Kanini Kega teamed up with a section of Jubilee elected legislators to kick out former President Uhuru Kenyatta from the party leadership and named Sabina Chege as the new party leader and Kanini Kega as the new Secretary General replacing Jeremiah Kioni.
