Jubilee party relocates headquarters from Pangani
By Joshua Cheloti
The Jubilee party now has a new headquarters.
The party has for the last few years been operating from Jubilee House in Pangani, Nairobi.
But according to party Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni, they have now moved from Pangani to the Kileleshwa area.
In a statement shared on the party’s verified Twitter handle, Kioni said the new address for the party headquarters will be in the leafy residential suburb.
“The Jubilee party headquarters has been relocated to a new address within the Kileleshwa area, off Mandera Road,” the party Secretary General said.
Led by former President Uhuru Kenyatta, the Jubilee party was being housed at Emani Business Centre in Pangani.
The building was however put up for auction in August 2022, just weeks after the August 9 general election.
In an advertisement that was put up in local dailies, Garam Investments indicated that the building was to be auctioned on September 13, 2023, at Garam’s headquarters offices in Westlands.
The auction was however not related to the Jubilee party that was merely being housed at the facility on a rental basis.
But even as the former ruling party relocates to Kileleshwa, the former Ndaragua Member of Parliament has also announced plans to revive it.
Kioni said going forward; they will be focusing on strengthening their offices from county to ward levels.
He also noted that they will be launching recruitment of more members.
“Our focus will be on strengthening our county, constituency and ward offices and recruiting more members as we mould and nurture the next generation of jubilee leaders,” he said in the statement.
The Jubilee party was formed ahead of the 2017 general election that saw the defunct The National Alliance (TNA) and United Republican Party merge.
TNA and URP, led by Uhuru and President William Ruto had formed a joint government after winning the 2013 general election.
But after the merger, Ruto would later break out of Jubilee after falling out with Uhuru to form the United Democratic Alliance, a key member of the ruling Kenya Kwanza coalition.
