The registrar of political parties Anne Nderitu has declined to endorse changes in the Ford Kenya Party leadership.
Ms. Nderitu has instead called on the party leaders to solve wrangles internally.
Ford Kenya Secretary General Eseli Simiyu and new party leader Wafula Wamunyinyi early Tuesday presented documents effecting changes of leadership in the Party as ratified by the Party's bona-fide and LEGAL NEC members.
This comes after Dr. Simiyu outed senator Wetangula as party leader, citing gross misconduct and failure to lead the party in right direction.
We want to take away the party from cartels, to strengthen it and take it to the people. We have already filed our documents at the registrar of political parties, and she acknowledged all the documents were proper,” said Hon. Wamunyinyi at an interview with NTV after submitting the documents.
Dr. Simiyu said he is confidence that they had adhered with all the regulations required for the transition.
“As Secretary-General I followed all the laws and regulations that needed to be followed to be able to file our returns with the Registrar which by the grace of God we were able to file this morning,” said Simiyu.
However, Senator Wetangula maintains that he is still the legal Ford Kenya party leader
The Bungoma senator said his removal over the weekend lacked legal framework, terming it null and void.
