Uhuru's Jubilee sacks three top officials after unexpected mess
Party's Secretary General Raphael Tuju has told journalists that the move by the party was to wipe out a terrible mess in the party.
The sacking comes shortly after a chaotic election in Murang’a and Kirinyaga counties on Friday.
Simon Kamau, Samuel Macharia and Eric Muriithi were send packing after failing to manage the chaotic elections.
Jubilee’s secretary general Raphael Tuju on Sunday told journalists that the move by the party was a clear up of the mess, and also a bid to tame violence that had earlier rocked the choice of county election board officials.
“It is illogical that we are still witnessing the aggression during such a simple exercise, in which we all wish for peace,” Tuju said.
On Friday in Kirinyaga, chaos erupted after supporters of incumbent Governor Joseph Ndathi clashed with former Devolution CS Anne Waigiru’s – who is also eyeing the seat.
Supporters from the two sides descended on each other with blows, tearing election materials, a scenario that led to the termination of the highly awaited for exercise.
On the other hand in Murang’s County, Governor Mwangi Wairia’s diehards clashed with his Kagumo MP Jamleck Kamau supporters, bring every bit of everything to a standstill.
Last week, Nairobi elections were rudely interrupted after supporters of Senator Sonko camp differed with peter Kenneth’s supporters over allegations of inducing names in the register which were initially missing, swindling numbers.
