In a statement seen by TV47 Digital, Ndile has written to Jubilee Party seeking Mwaura’s position, citing that he is now part of the disabled persons following an accident.
“On my way home, I was unfortunately involved in a serious car accident which left my right thigh broken, among other serious injuries,” says Ndile.
In what is seen as urging the Jubilee Party to return the favour, Ndile says “As you are aware, I was the party leader, The Independent Party (TIP) which I willingly dissolved to form Jubilee Party so that we have a winning team.”
Blowing his own trumpet, Ndile further says that despite a strong Wiper party wave in Ukambani region, “I managed to become a strong number two in the Mavoko Parliamentary race with more than 25,000 votes for both the president and myself.”
“During the repeat Presidential election, I was assigned the role of mobilizing the Nairobi County’s Members of County Assembly(MCAs) for the last campaign at Nairobi’s Uhuru Park,” Ndile said.
Now “officially a member of the Disabled Society of Kenya”, Ndile said he is the best candidate for the position in the Senate.
“Though the party may still have its pre-election nomination list, it is important to note that some hitherto preferred candidates have shifted their party allegiances as proved by the likes of Hon Mwaura,” Ndile said.
Ndile now awaits a positive response from the party in relation to his application.
Senator Mwaura’s woes
On March 29, the Registrar of Political Parties removed the name of nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura from the Jubilee Party Membership register.
This move came after the party on February 8 expelled six nominated senators, Mwaura included, on grounds of insubordination and gross misconduct.
The High Court, however, issued orders staying the decision by the registrar until a case Mwaura has filed is heard and determined.
Mwaura’s case has been set to be heard on April 15.
