Two parties that collaborated to put retired President Mwai Kibaki at the helm of Kenya’s leadership are now engaged in a fierce war over their assets.
National Rainbow Coalition Kenya (NARK KENYA) a party led by former Gichugu MP now a presidential aspirant Martha Karua has moved to court seeking orders to block PNU from selling its assets.
The Party for National Unity was the vehicle used by President Mwai Kibaki to seek re-election in 2007.
In a certificate of urgency, NARK Kenya Secretary General Dr Ambrose Nzomo accuses PNU secretary general of publishing a notice calling for PNU’s Governing Council to dissolve and wind up the party.
Narc says that the move contravenes the provisions of section 48(1) of the political partied Act, 2012.
“NARK Kenya is a fully registered political party and through its coalition partner-PNU, Nark Kenya is eligible and qualified to various shares of monies from the political parties Fund, “Nzomo argues.
Nark Kenya says that PNU have kept all its benefit including monies adding that the said decision is unjust and discriminatory.
PNU was formed in 2007 by an alliance of 7 political parties, NARK Kenya being among them.
The IEBC, Registrar of political parties, among others have been listed as respondents.
