Jubilee MCAs disagree as leader ousted
Wrangles have emerged among parties affiliated to the Jubilee Party following the ousting of Trans-Nzoia Majority Leader, Alfred Weswa.
Weswa of New Ford Kenya ( NFK) was on Tuesday, November 15 replaced by Simon Torotich of URP with the former pointing accusing fingers to a local Member of Parliament for orchestrating his removal.
A furious Weswa claimed that the lawmaker plotted his downfall despite the Jubilee affiliate parties agreeing that he remains in office.
Weswa had earlier on survived three attempts to remove him prompting the New Ford Kenya leadership to seek the intervention of Deputy President William Ruto.
A section of the Members of the County Assembly (MCAs), especially those who were elected on TNA and URP tickets, ganged up and elected Torotich.
Weswa protested against his removal warning that it will cost Jubilee in the county and arguing that some members of the house are out to undermine others.
In July, New Ford Kenya party dissolved and joined the newly formed Jubilee Party, the political vehicle President Uhuru Kenyatta will use to seek re-election in the next year’s General Election.
The party, which was founded only a few months before the 2007 General Election, closed shop after a unanimous decision to do so was arrived at during their National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.
