PNU is under fire threatening to dismantle a party that saw former president Mwai Kibaki earn his presidency.

Some disgruntled officials of the party have had bitter rivalry with their Secretary General accusing him of demeaning their authority.

The wars reached the
Political Parties Dispute Tribunal which today rejected an application by a section of PNU officials seeking the removal of their Secretary-General John Okemwa Anunda from office.

The tribunal’s chairman Kyalo Mbobu said the attempt by the those members did not follow the party Constitution.

Mr Mbobu said that National Executive Council members ought to have given the SG an opportunity to defend himself before demanding the intervention of the political parties tribunal.

He ruled that a decision by the officials to hold a NEC meeting which resolved to remove Anunda acted outside the Constitution.

“Their (PNU National Executive Committee) resolution cannot be held as some of the people who sat at the NEC were strangers,” he said.

The tribunal had suspended PNU from convening its Annual National Delegate Congress after party officials Mwajuma Rajab Abdalla and Irene Kopi Muronji lodged a complaint against their SG.
