One Kenyan voter is seeking to have the Jubilee Party deregistered over failure to meet the political party criteria in the constitution.
Godfrey Musaina through his lawyer Duncan Okubasu wants the party led by President Uhuru Kenyatta to be deregistered for not upholding the laid out criteria under Article 91 of the constitution.
According to him, the Jubilee Party does not keep or hold functional offices in at least 24 counties. He also claims that the party does not utilize 30% of its funding from the public on programmes and party activities.
The registrar of political parties is aware of the breaching by Jubilee Party as each year she receives annual returns from political reports, but has declined to take any step to ensure it implements the constitution or deregister it
The submitted court papers also indicated that Godfrey also wants the Political Parties Fund to not fund the party in the 2020/2021 financial year.
This petition will be mentioned in a court of law on November 2, 2020.
