The Jubilee party has summoned three nominated Members of County Assembly, MCAs for allegedly disregarding party positions in various matters.
The three MCAs Ann Thumbi, Silvia Museiya and Millicent Jagero are supposed to appear before Jubilee Disciplinary Committee at Jubilee Headquarters in Pangani on Friday at exactly 10 am.
A letter from the party dated 24th November indicated that the County Assembly Majority Whip Paul Kados complained about the three.
“You are hereby required to appear on November 27, 2020, at 10:00 a.m when the complaint against you will be heard by this committee at Jubilee party Headquarters in accordance with the Jubilee Party Disciplinary Committee Regulations, 2017,” reads the letter from the Party.
It is believed that the three who are also associated with Deputy President William Ruto and Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko were vocal in the much-contested Nairobi City County Appropriation Bill, 2020 that had been earlier rejected by Governor Mike Sonko.
The female MCAs have been accused of disregarding the party position expressed in a memorandum from the Governor on the Nairobi City County Appropriation Bill, 2020.
They have also been accused of actively campaigning, opposing and frustrating the budget estimates for the Financial Year 2020-21 contrary to the party’s position.
The vocal legislators are also said to have undermined the party’s leadership both at the National and County levels and mobilizing while openly associating with those opposed to the Party’s position on FY 2020-21 budget and Governor’s Memorandum.
However, Thumbi are Museiya claim the summonses have nothing to do with Governor Sonko or the budget but their decision to support DP Ruto.
