Former Jubilee Party deputy Secretary-General Caleb Kositany.
Soy Member of Parliament Caleb Kositany was on Monday, March 1, ousted from the Jubilee Deputy Secretary-General position.
The legislator was replaced by his Cherangany counterpart Joshua Kutuny. Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju, through a statement, confirmed that the ouster was done in exercise of the party’s mandate as provided for under Article 7 (2) of the Jubilee party constitution
The reports come just days after Jubilee Vice-Chairman David Murathe stated that the ruling party would hold a national management committee meeting and effectively kick out the legislator from the position.

Murathe accused the Soy MP of showing obvious allegiance to the Tanga Tanga brigade primarily by campaigning for United Democratic Alliance (UDA) candidates in various by-elections.
Kositany, however, disputed Murathe’s claims faulting the Vice Chairman for campaigning for an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) candidate in the Kibra by-election.
The removal of Kositany is the latest development in the purge within the ruling party.
