The Jubilee party has moved its headquarters to Kileleshwa in new changes.

In a notice to all members on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni confirmed that the immediate former ruling party had relocated its headquarters from Emani Business Centre in Pangani.

The new offices are located within Kileleshwa area, off Mandera Road.

"The Jubilee Party Headquarters has been relocated to a new address within the Kileleshwa area, off Mandera Road," Kioni said.

The former Ndaragwa Member of Parliament said the party is now focused on strengthening its county, constituency and ward offices and recruiting more members in a bid to "mould and nurture the next generation of Jubilee Leaders."

The relocation of the Jubilee party headquarters comes months after Emani Business Centre changed ownership.

The seven-storey commercial complex located along Thika Superhighway was put up for auction in August last year.

An advert published in the local dailies on August 29, 2022, indicated that the building would be auctioned on September 13 at Garam Investment's headquarters offices in Westlands.

At the time, the property was registered under Florence Wairimu Mbugua of Farmers Industry Limited.

"Bidders will be required to produce a bidding deposit of Ksh5 million by way of cash or bankers cheque before being allowed to bid," a part of the auction notice read.

Jubilee party had been operating from the property since 2016, a year before the 2017 General Election.

After an audit report in 2021, Auditor General Nancy Gathungu questioned the party's expenditure on rent which had been estimated to be Ksh 87.47 million yet they had arrears.

The party, which performed dismally in the 2022 General Election, had also failed to register the lease agreement for the property with the Ministry of Lands and Physical Planning to justify the payments.
