The Jubilee Party Chairman Nelson Dzuya has announced the dismissal of former Ndaragwa MP Jeremiah Kioni as the Secretary General of the Uhuru-led outfit.

The party leadership stated that the former lawmaker has been suspended on the basis of laxity and misconduct.

Speaking at the Jubilee Party Parliamentary Group meeting in Nakuru, the party's top brass announced that EALA MP Kanini Kega will take over as the acting Secretary General.

The Jubilee National Executive Council (NEC) also announced that they have set in motion a process to exit the Azimio coalition. The MPs also distanced themselves from Azimio's anti-government rallies.

The meeting was graced by lawmakers who last week shifted their allegiance from the opposition to President William Ruto's Kenya Kwanza coalition.

The parliamentary group meeting ran parallel to a similar meeting convened by Azimio leader Raila Odinga in Machakos county.

The Machakos meeting was addressed by Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, DAP-K honcho Eugene Wamalwa, Minority Leader Opiyo Wandayi and Jeremiah Kioni in his capacity as the Jubilee Party Secretary General.

In his address, Kioni averred that the Jubilee Party is firmly rooted in the Azimio coalition despite over 30 Mps meeting and pledging support to President William Ruto.

The State House meeting came just days after a section of ODM MPs also met the Head of State and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua.

The meetings sparked a storm within the opposition, with ODM Leader Raila Odinga terming the lawmakers as traitors.
