The Political Parties Dispute Tribunal has handed former President Uhuru Kenyatta a blow after upholding Kanini Kega as the party’s Secretary General.
The ruling was as a result of a suit filed by Former Ndaragwa MP Jeremiah Kioni and David Murathe challenging a ruling by the Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu that they had duly been removed as the party’s Secretary General and Chairman respectively.
Ms. Nderitu noted that the Kanini Kega fraction had followed the due process in removing the two leaders and former Treasurer Kangwe Gichohi from office.

Kioni and Murathe had been ousted by the National Executive Council led by EALA MP Kanini Kega before he was elected in as the Secretary General by members who had split from the party.
Former President Uhuru Kenyatta has been quoted before calling on outsiders to stay away from the affairs of the party accusing them of using force to divide the leadership and take over the affairs.
During a National Delegates meeting held by the former Head of State, a new set of leaders were appointed as the party looked forward into turning things around and end the wrangles.
President William Ruto has been accused of rocking the boat from outside by using Kanini Kega and Sabina Chege.
