A section of Jubilee Party supporters in Nakuru held peaceful demonstration on Monday morning claiming the Nakuru’s party office had failed in its mandate of service to the members.
Addressing media at oat the gate of the Jubilee office in Nakuru, the members called on the Jubilee top leadership to look at what is ailing the Nakuru’s office.
They claim the office has remained shut for the last seven months.
The members went ahead to endorse new former Nakuru TNA chairman Abdul Noor as the chairman while Margaret Migongo was endorsed as the secretary.
Their actions follows the lapse of the 14-day ultimatum they had issued for the interim leadership to leave office and have elections conducted.
“We want the Jubilee office top leadership to step in and ensure whatever is ailing the office in Nakuru is addressed” they said.
Sentiments echoed by Dr.Abdul Noor who condemned the move for the office to remain shut saying it demotivates members.
He said he is ready to serve the Jubilee Members in Nakuru towards realizing the government’s agenda towards development.
“The office has remained shut for more than seven months now denying members the service they need. Personally I am ready to serve and I am appealing to Mr.Manyara to hand me the keys to the office so that we can start work” said Dr.Noor.
However, in a quick rejoinder, Nakuru Jubilee Party Interim Chairman Mr. David Manyara refuted claims that the office was dormant.
According to Manyara, the faction opposing his leadership lack knowledge about how the system operates.
He said with the changing times the office need not to be open all the time adding that the Nakuru office opens on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Mr.Manyara however admitted that the office is facing challenges among them lack of funds to cater for the rent.
“There is law and people should follow the law as far as party matters are concerned.The office in Nakuru is operational and we open it on Tuesdays and Fridays. We have tried to ensure the office is operational despite the challenges like right now we have debt rent” said Manyara.
