Jeremiah Kioni has insisted that he is still the Jubilee secretary general despite the National Executive Committee suspending him.
While speaking during the Azimio rally at Mlolongo in Machakos county, Kioni further disputed claims that Jubilee was on its way out of Azimio.
“Hayo ni mambo ambayo si ya ukweli. Mimi niko hapa kama SG wa Jubilee. Jubilee itakuwa Azimio hadi mwisho. Uhuru Kenyatta atakuwa Azimio hadi mwisho,” he said.
(Those are lies. I’m here as the Jubilee SG. Jubilee is a member of Azimio till the end and so is former President Uhuru Kenyatta).
The former Ndaragwa MP hit out at party members who met with the Committee at the Sarova Woodlands Hotel in Kisumu.
They include Kanini Kega, Rachel Nyamai, Naomi Shaban, and Joshua Kutuny among others.
Following the meeting, the National Executive Executive Committee wrote to Kioni, suspending him from the position on claims of gross misconduct.
He was replaced with Kanini Kega.
Also suspended are Treasurer Kagwe Gichohi and vice chairman David Murathe.
Kioni said the Kenya Kwanza government was party to the scheme to kick him out of Jubilee alleging that the William Ruto-led regime was carrying out an agenda to sabotage Jubilee Party and Azimio.
“Those who are at State House started a plan last year. A plan to make sure that the pasties in the opposition are sold out and split so there are no people who can talk on behalf of the public,” he said.
Kioni fired at the members of the party who visited State House terming them as sell-outs.
