TNA seeks orders barring Oloo from by-elections

02 April 2014, 15:22 Millicent Kawii

Nairobi - The National Alliance Party’s National Secretary General George Onyango Oloo was yesterday sued in a case seeking to stop him from issuing nomination certificates during three impeding by elections.

Mr Oloo, who had been sued initially by some TNA party members seeking his removal as the party’s National Secretary General, now allege that  it is wrong for him to issue the nomination of certificates for Othaya and Mathare North constituencies as well as Meru gubernatorial by-elections whilst the other case is still ongoing.

Mr Rogers Mogaka Mogusu the petitioner in both cases argues that TNA would be denied representation in parliament if an election petition is lodged to challenge the capacity of Mr Oloo in the issuance of the nomination certificates.

“TNA is in the process of issuing out nomination certificates to its candidates for the two constituencies and Mr Oloo’s position is a matter that is in court; should the case succeed then the people of Othaya and Mathare North as well as the party will be denied representation should someone challenge the issuance,” said Mogusu’s lawyer Peter Langat.

Mr Langat said that any further delay may lead to deregistration of TNA on account of non-compliance with the constitution, the Political Parties Act as well as other legal risks should TNA be sued.

High Court judge David Majanja declined to issue any orders but directed that the case be heard on Friday.

In the initial case filed on March 4, the TNA members through Mr Moguku also claimed that their party may face deregistration due to non-compliance to the constitution as well as the Political Parties Act, considering that TNA had raised concern over consequences of non-compliance.

The party members wanted Mr Oloo disqualified from holding any other political party office besides the TNA’s national Secretary General one as he was appointed on December 23 last year as Chairman of the Lake Basin Development Authority by President Uhuru Kenyatta through a gazette notice.

According to Mogusu, the appointment made Mr Oloo a state officer and his continued service as the party’s secretary general violates Article 77 of the constitution.

He further alleges that the recent revocation of Mr Ferdinand Waititu’s presidential appointment as Tana Athi Water Board head by a High court judge is a similar situation to Mr Oloo.
