Jubilee Party has been barred from forwarding the name of its nominee for the Nairobi Woman Representative position to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), pending the determination of a case filed by one of the aspirants.

Political Parties Tribunal Chairman Desma Nungo issued an interim order restraining President Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party and its chairman from forwarding the name to the electoral body, apart from that of Wangui B. Ng’ang’a.

“Interim orders are hereby issued restraining the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th respondents from forwarding to the IEBC or any other person (other than the complaint, Wangui B. Ng’ang’a) the nomination certificate for the August 9, 2022  Nairobi City County Women Representative elective seat under the Jubilee Political Party,” the tribunal said.

Wangui through her lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui moved to the tribunal accusing Jubilee Party of arbitrarily and unconstitutionally refusing to issue her with a nomination certificate for the post.

She said she has met all the requisite and necessary demands of Jubilee but the party has refused to give her the certificate.

Wangui further urged the tribunal to bar IEBC from receiving any other name for Nairobi Woman Replacement from Jubilee Party or Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance either sole of joint nomination Certificate, for the August 9, general election.

“There being no other approved or designated nominee for the Jubilee Party, I should proceed to popularize herself as such a nominee so as to sell her agenda to voters,” she said.

Wangui told the Tribunal that she spent Sh8.4million on billboards with Live Ad co. ltd  and has further and additionally spent no less than Sh10 million to establish a secretariat and employed people to popularize her candidature.
