Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka has re-admitted Isaac Mwaura back to Senate.
This follows the High Court ruling that quashed Mwaura’s removal from the Jubilee Party.
“….and further the High Court having quashed Gazette notice no. 4598 dated May 11, 2021, by the chairperson of IEBC which appointed Sammy Prisa Leshore to replace Isaac Mwaura as a member of the senate representing PWDs, I therefore direct that Isaac Mwaura Maigua, CBS, MP, remains as Senator in accordance with the Constitution of Kenya and the Senate Standing Orders,” Lusaka said.
Justice Joseph Sergon found the deregistration illegal ruling that the decision was not conducted in accordance with the law
In May, Mwaura lost his seat as the party made threats to tighten the noose on party discipline and loyalty.
The NMC in exercising its mandate provided or under article 7 (2a) of the party’s constitution and relying on other enabling provisions of the party law has expelled the following senators, Mwaura, Mary Yiane, Waqo Naomi Jilo, Omanga Millicent, Prengei Victor, Iman Dekow and Gona Christine Zawadi, ” read a statement from the party.
Mwaura had openly declared allegiance to the Tangatanga wing allied to the Deputy President William Ruto that has since morphed to United Democratic Alliance (UDA) political outfit.
In late March, the High Court in Nairobi temporarily stopped Mwaura’s expulsion after he moved to court to challenge the ouster which was pegged on grounds of disciplinary violations.
“That pending the hearing and determination of this application inter partes, the first respondent, 2nd respondent, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and the Speaker of the Senate be and hereby barred from implementing the decision of the 1st and 2nd respondent,” the ruling reads.
In a gazette notice dated May 11, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati said Mwaura stood disqualified as a member of the senate representing persons with disabilities.
