The Political Parties Dispute Tribunal was today forced to adjourn after two senior PNU officials asked the court to stop a national delegates conference slated September 9.
PNU chairman John Kamama Mbugua, and his Organizing Secretary, Alphonse Musyoki petitioned the court to stop the delegates conference.
Lawyers representing the party could not agree on who should act on behalf of PNU and as a consequence forced the tribunal to adjourn. The two are SC Okongo Omogeni and Otieno Ogolla.
Mr Omogeni said he had been instructed by the Secretary General to represent the party in the suit, while Ogolla maintained that he was instructed by it National Executive Council.
Hearing will be October 28.
Lawyer Omogeni also said that PNU will not dissolved to join Jubilee.
A notice issued by other officials calling for the meeting was termed null and void as it was intended to endorse Meru Governor Peter Munya, who is also the council of governor’s chairman, as party leader without following procedure as stipulated in the party’s constitution.
According to the petition, the main agenda of the meeting is to install Munya, an executive member of the Alliance Party of Kenya APK as the party leader of PNU in place of retired President Mwai Kibaki.
