BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,11TH MAY,2021-Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka has declared the seat held by nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura vacant.
This is following a decision by Jubilee Party to expel him after he was accused of campaigning for a candidate of a different political outfit.
“…the seat of the Member of the Senate elected under Article 98 (1) (d)of the Constitution and held by Hon. Isaac Mwaura Maigua became vacant, with effect from the 7th May, 2021,” Lusaka said in a gazette dated May 10th , 2021.
Mwaura had suffered a major setback after the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal endorsed a decision by the Jubilee Party to expel him on the grounds of disloyalty and pledging allegiance to another outfit.
In March, Mwaura got a reprieve after the High Court in Nairobi slammed brakes on his expulsion from the Jubilee Party.
Justice Hedwig Ong’udi temporarily suspended the decision by the ruling party to expel Mwaura pending hearing of his case.
