Jubilee Party Changes Venue for NDC

Jubilee Party has relocated its National Delegate Conference (NDC) to Ngong Race Course in Nairobi. The change of venue was announced through a notice in the local newspapers.

The party clarified that all other details for the conference, as previously announced, remain unchanged.

“Notice is hereby given that the venue of the Jubilee NDC has been moved to Ngong Race Course in Nairobi,” a section of the statement read.

“All other details remain as per the notice published on April 29, 2023.”

The venue change was prompted by ongoing renovation works at Bomas of Kenya, as communicated by Gladys Kangethe, the Marketing and Corporate Communications Manager of the facility.

The renovations began on May 16 and are projected to last for eight weeks, led to the decision to move the special NDC presided over by Jubilee Vice Chairman David Murathe.

“Our meeting is on. We will advertise the venue and also invite our delegates through text messages. They will be notified beforehand,” Murathe said on Friday.

The Jubilee Party has experienced internal leadership disputes between two factions led by EALA MP Kanini Kega and Jeremiah Kioni. The party was recently instructed to vacate their current headquarters in Kileleshwa following the wrangles.

Kanini Kega’s team took action expelling Kioni and Murather, citing allegations of gross misconduct and a lack of respect for the party’s organs.

Jubilee National Treasurer Kagwe Gichohi was suspended for a period of two years.
