Jubilee Deputy Secretary-General Caleb Kositany on Monday launched a full attack on his boss, Mr Raphael Tuju, demanding the financial records of the ruling Jubilee Party.
This is the latest episode in the now-public cold war s between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto, in which Mr Kositany and Mr Tuju are all too happy to play the pawns in the battle for the heart and soul of the country’s largest political party.
In a letter to Mr Tuju copied to the Registrar of Political Parties Ms Anne Nderitu, Mr Kositany said he was acting on behalf of “more than 100 MPs and over 500 MCAs who are members of the party and who would like information pertaining to Jubilee’s financial records from 2016 to date made public.”
“This demand is made pursuant to Article 35 (1) b of the Constitution of Kenya and that of the party,” says the letter.
Mr Kositany wants Mr Tuju to furnish him with the approved budgets for financial years 2016/2017, 2017/2018, 2018/2019 and 2019/2020, as well as all approved procurement records, reports and all committee minutes for the same period.
“I hasten to note that previous requisition of information from myself and/or other members of the party on other matters have been ignored intentionally or otherwise, by your office. May you not ignore this as well,” said Mr Kositany.
