Court Reinstates Isaac Mwaura as Senator

Earlier this year, a number of senators were expelled from the Jubilee Party after being termed as rebels . 

Hon Isaac Mwaura was among these politicians . His colleagues were saved from the expulsion by the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal (PPDT) but Mwaura was left in the cold.

In a ruling issued by the High Court on Thursday, November 25, the court set aside the determination of the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal that allowed the removal of Mwaura from the Senate.

The court, in its ruling, argued that the Tribunal did not offer the Senator fair hearing and hence the decision to strike him off the list of senators was wrong, unlawful and unjust.

The court also found the decision by the ruling Jubilee Party's National Disciplinary Committee did not follow due process and was unlawful .

Justice J.K. Sergon further quashed a gazette notice replacing Mwaura in the Senate.
