A Nairobi voter has moved to court seeking a declaration that Jubilee has lost core is attributes and is no longer operating lawfully as a political party as required by law.

Further, the petitioner wants the court to stop the reimbursement of Sh161 million to Jubilee, the sum being the allocation from the Political Parties Fund.

The voter, Godfrey Musaina, also wants the electoral and boundaries review commission restrained from approving and gazetting the nominations list from Jubilee for the by-elections scheduled for December 15, 2020.

The petitioner also wants party nominations for Gatura ward in Murang’a, Wundayi Mbale Taita Taveta, Kahawa Wendani ward in Kiambu County, Lake View ward in Nakuru County and Kisumu North stopped.

Through his lawyer, Duncan Okumbasu, the voter said every person has a right to institute court proceedings claiming that a right under fundamental freedom in the Bill of Rights has been denied.

High Court’s Justice Murima certified the matter urgent and scheduled the hearing for November 2, 2020.
