President Uhuru Kenyatta has invited Jubilee MPs to a meeting at State House today.
According to an invitation message, the MPs are to meet at Statehouse Nairobi starting 9:00 am.
“I wish to invite you to a Jubilee Party consultative meeting with our party leader, H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta, at State House Nairobi on Friday, February 4, at 9 a.m.,” read the invite sent out to MPs by National Assembly Majority Leader Amos Kimunya.
The invitation states that the ruling party members are to engage in a consultative meeting with the president.
This comes as Jubilee Party plans to hold its much-awaited National Delegates Convention (NDC) on February 25 and 26, 2022.
In a notice issued Thursday, the party’s Secretary-General Raphael Tuju says the conference will take place at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) in Nairobi from 10:00am.
In the convention, the delegates will review, formulate and approve the party policies.
Further the delegates, will amend, review and ratify proposed changes to the party constitution to comply with the current electoral laws.
The members will also approve the proposed new seal, symbol and flag of the party.
“The NDC will be held in strict compliance with Covid-19 guidelines by the Ministry of Health,” Tuju stated.
The NDC had been scheduled for November 30th, 2021, but was postponed as it had coincided with the head of state’s most important event of the year, the State of the Nation Address in Parliament.
During the NDC the delegates will endorse Jubilee’s coalition with ODM leader Raila Odinga under the Azimio la Umoja initiative.
Wiper Democratic Movement led by Kalonzo Musyoka is also expected to hold NDC next week on Wednesday to ratify cooperation with Azimio la Umoja.
Former ruling party, Kanu is also expected to hold NDC to ratify the same.
