Soy Member of National Assembly and Jubilee Party Deputy Secretary General Caleb Kositany has written a demand letter to the Party’s Secretary General Raphael Tuju seeking to be supplied with documents detailing the party’s transaction for the past four years.
In a letter he shared on his Twitter account, the MP said that he was writing on behalf of over 100 MPs and over 500 MCAs who are members of the party. He said the demand was made pursuant to Article 35 (l) (b) of the Constitution of Kenya and Part III Sections 23-32 and in particular Section 29 and 31 of the Political Parties Act and Party Constitution.
In the letter, Kositany demanded for information on twelve items including approved budgets for financial years running from 2016 to 2020, procurement records, reports and all committee minutes for the financial years, certified bank accounts and cash books used by the party over the same period, finance and audit committee minutes including internal audit reports, list of Jubilee party offices paid for by the party including list of leases, tenancy agreement for the party’s Headquarters in Pangani, Nairobi and the payment documents.
The legislator also demanded for copies of payments on expenditure incurred over the periods, assets of the party, donations to the party in kind and in cash over the mentioned period, contributions of all elected members of the party over the same period, salaries and wages of the staff of the party and all the bills paid to date.
Kositany has threatened legal action against the party should it fail to provide the documents within one week.
They must stop running jubilee like a kiosk.
