Two Jubilee nominated MCAs have landed in trouble for failing to remit party contributions.
In a letter addressed to the Registrar of Political Parties, the two nominated MCAs, Ruth Ndumi Maingi and Beatrice Waithera Gakunyi, now risk being expelled from the party for failing to pay the fee amounting to Sh170,000 each from October 2017.
The two MCAs are ardent supporters of Governor Mike Sonko, who is facing impeachment.
Jubilee Party Nairobi Regional Director Ms Susan Mugwe, in a letter dated November 30, 2020, asked the MCAs to show cause why disciplinary action should not be taken against them should they fail to remit the dues.
Ms Mugwe said the two’s action constitutes indiscretion to the party and is contrary to Article 13 of the Jubilee Party Constitution and the Code of Conduct they signed.
“Whereas the Jubilee members of Nairobi County Assembly have been making their monthly remittance for the period October 2017 to date, you have reneged, refused, and/or defaulted altogether. Aware of your commitments to the party note that your action and failure to remit party subscriptions constitutes imprudence towards the party,” read in part the letter.
“You are therefore required to make immediate payment of Sh170,000 to the account provided. In default thereof, you show cause why disciplinary action should not be taken against you in writing within seven days of receipt of this letter. In the event that you do not do so, a decision will be made, your cooperation notwithstanding,” added the letter.
The letter is copied to the Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu, Party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju, and National Disciplinary Committee chairman Muchai Lumatate.
On Monday, Jubilee Party suspended three MCAs for going against the party position.
