Namwamba expelled, barred from transacting anything on behalf of LPK

The matter is set for hearing on March 9.

 

This follows an application by John Barasa Makokha, on behalf of the LPK, to the Tribunal, asking it to stop Namwamba from transacting any business on behalf of the party. Makokha swore an affidavit with the tribunal on the matter on January 27.

Namwamba who took over leadership of the party in September last year, has been making several changes in his party, the latest being the expulsion of his secretary general David Makali.

The replacement of Makali in the party has had uncontained ripple effect in the party. Makali, who was earlier accused of siding with the National Super Alliance (NASA) was expelled a few days ago.

Namwamba’s woe ticks in just a day after he was reinstated to lead the party. The tribunal on Monday restrained him from acting as a member and leader of the party.

The tribunal, led by Kyalo Mbobu and Milly Odongo had on Monday ordered that: “in order to avoid confusion in the affairs of the party, an interim order is hereby issued to restrain the respondent herein [Ababu Namwamba], by her servants, agents, from acting or purporting to act or representing and holding himself as member and party leader of the Labour Party of Kenya pending the hearing and determination of the application inter parties.”

The tribunal also had ordered the claimant to serve the notice of motion together with the statement of claim.

The tribunal also granted leave to the applicant to file and serve supplementary affidavit explaining the “nexus between the deponent and the claimant.”

Namwamba resigned as secretary-general of the Orange Democratic Movement last year before joining LPK where he was named party leader, citing frustration in ODM.

LPK chairperson Dr Julia Ojiambo, however, said she was not aware of any case presented before the tribunal.

“Party has no idea and has not filed anything anywhere,” Ojiambo said.
