Jubilee denies summoning Sonko over poll chaos

The Jubilee Party on Monday denied summoning four of its members to appear before the disciplinary committee over recent chaos in party polls.

Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko, Murang’a Governor Mwangi Wairia, Mr Ndathi and Nakuru East MP David Gikaria were the party members allegedly summoned by the committee.

Speaking to the Nation at the party’s headquarters, Mr Albert Memusi, the Jubilee Party’s head of communication, said that he was not aware of any summonses.

“They are not here. The only person who came to confirm this morning was Governor (Joseph) Ndathi (Kirinyaga) who wanted to know what was happening or what decision was made and we told him to wait since the sitting is today (Monday) then we will communicate the decision,” said Mr Memusi.


He said the only thing he could confirm was that the disciplinary committee was to meet to deliberate on the chaos that rocked the party.

The communication boss added that the committee was looking at the evidence presented by complainants and would make decisions based on the evidence before issuing any summons.

Mr Memusi said the party’s constitution would help know what was violated during the chaos.

They were allegedly set to appear before the committee over unrest that rocked Nairobi, Kirinyaga, Murang’a and Nakuru during nomination of members into county election boards.
