MPs hatching plot to oust TNA's top officials

09 January 2015, 18:41 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Trouble is looming in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s political party, The National Alliance (TNA), after MP hinted plans to oust the party’s top officials.

A cross-section of MPs led by Kieni MP, Kanini Kega, is demanding that the party’s top officials quit office and account for the party funds and property.

The deep cracks have played out just one year after similar squabbles were quelled behind closed doors.

Kega hinted that the MPs want the officials including Secretary General, Onyango Oloo and Chairman, Johnson Sakaja to make way for new leaders.

TNA was last year rated the most popular party in a political survey, and received a lion’s share of political party funds amounting to KES 89 million.

“We have been asking the SG and chairman to convene a members meeting but they have declined possibly fearing that they may be casualties of our resolutions,” said Kega.

“We have given them an ultimatum of two weeks to convene a meeting and by February, TNA parliamentary Group (PG) will organize its own retreat and pass the agenda,” said Kega who was addressing journalists at his constituency.

The MPs want Sakaja and Oloo, who have been serving as interim leaders, to leave their positions to permit the setting up of structures in readiness for 2017 elections.

“The party was asleep last year but it will be more vibrant from this year starting with mass grassroots registration of members,” said Kega.

The MP complained that the Sakanja-led officials have failed to account for monthly funds contributed by elected members.

“We are not happy about how they are managing the party finances, and now we need a more transparent team,” he continued

The first-term MP further accused the officials of contributing and fueling party wrangles at County levels and fiascos witnessed at County assemblies.
