Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika says Jubilee Asili Center, which was popularised on Thursday, June 18, was created to provide a meeting place for Jubilee Party leaders who feel neglected by the political outfit due to their “differing” political ideologies.
Taking to her official Facebook page on Friday, June 19, Kihika said: “We agreed as Jubilee leaders to establish Jubilee Asili Center, a meeting point for members who feel disenfranchised after a few mandarins blocked us from accessing our Party Office on Thika Road. At this Center we shall continue promoting the original ideas of our Jubilee Party.”
On Thursday, June 18, Deputy President William Ruto unveiled a parallel office name Jubilee Asili Centre, located on Makindu Road, off Riara Road in Nairobi’s Kilimani area.
At the new address, Ruto hosted 20 Jubilee MPs, including those removed from Senate leadership and National Assembly committees for supporting his presidential ambition.
Kipchumba Murkomen, one of the attendees of the Thursday meeting, said they had opted to open new party offices to hold party meetings.
He claimed they had been denied access to Jubilee Party Headquarters in Pangani on Thika Road.
No one has thus far communicated intentions of registering Jubilee Asili as a political Party.
The Registrar of Political Parties, Anne Nderitu, said Thursday that no one has approached her Office seeking to register Jubilee Asili as a political outfit.
