, NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 29 – The Jubilee Party Appeals Tribunal is on Saturday to hear 53 complaints filed by disgruntled participants in the Jubilee Party primaries.
Ainabkoi Member of Parliament Samuel Chepkonga was among those listed to be heard with three appeals chambers having been set up according to Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju.
“Jubilee Party Appeals Tribunal is in session, we have a total of three chambers dealing with the cases. A lot of these are being settled, some of them have filed their complaints as a matter of record, otherwise they’re ready to move on and continue to support the party and we are very very grateful for those who have done that.
On Friday, Tuju told reporters that 360 complaints have so far been lodged with the Party and said no nomination certificates would be issued until the contested issues are resolved.
“Our process of handing out the nomination certificate is very thorough. We have to be sure that you’ve won, we have to be sure there’s no appeal against you.”
President Kenyatta has himself given the assurance that all disgruntled aspirants will receive a fair hearing and has pleaded with them to remain loyal to the party.
