Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Peter Kenneth has saved the Jubilee Party a major embarrassment by letting the party use his offices, after Party of National Unity (PNU) kicked out Jubilee secretariat from their offices.
Both parties had laid claim to the old offices in Kangemi. PNU leader Peter Munya led supporters in repainting the building in its blue party colours.
“Peter Kenneth had an existing, well-equipped and running office, so he simply told them to transfer their documents, and staff to his,” says a source well versed with the matter, adding that Jubilee has its offices in Pangani and the building in Kangemi has always been PNU headquarters.
“For the past one year, PNU has been asking Jubilee to move out, but they have been adamant since they inherited the office from The National Alliance (TNA) party,” the source claimed.
Jubilee Party Secretary General Veronicah Maina insists that the Kangemi office belongs to Jubilee Party, while the head of the secretariat Raphael Tuju, says the trustees will decide which party owns the building.
