Jubilee nominated senator, Isaac Mwaura has been re-admitted to the senate after months of fighting for his reinstatement following his expulsion from Jubilee Party.

While re-admitting him, Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka said he was obligated by the court decision to allow him back to the senate.

“The High Court having quashed Gazette notice number 4597 by the Speaker of the Senate that declared a vacancy of a member elected through a party list, thereby removing senator (Dr) Isaac Mwaura as a senator.

“Further the High Court having quashed gazette notice no. 4598 dated May 11, 2021, by the chairperson of IEBC which appointed Mr Sammy Prisa Leshore to replace Isaac Mwaura as a member of the senate representing PWDs, I therefore direct that Isaac Mwaura Maigua, CBS, MP, remains as Senator in accordance with the Constitution of Kenya and the Senate Standing Orders,” Lusaka said.

Mr. Mwaura was expelled by the Jubilee party earlier in the year for not following the party constitution and engaging in the activities of UDA despite being nominated by Jubilee to the senate.
