In Summary
  • Most of its members decamped to The National Alliance (TNA) of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
  • Signs of trouble in the once most powerful party in the country came to the open last month after auctioneers acting on a warrant of attachment descended on its headquarters on Musa Gitau Lane, off Waiyaki Way and seized its property

The last vehicle used by former President Mwai Kibaki to State House, the Party of National Unity, has been deregistered. 

Doubts as to whether PNU still existed were put to rest when Registrar of Political Parties Lucy Ndung’u declared in a gazette notice Friday that it had been “effectively deregistered.”

She did not give any reasons why she decided to deregister the party. The registrar has the right to deregister a party that contravenes the Political Parties Act.

PNU has largely been inactive after the death of its chairman, Prof George Saitoti, in a helicopter crash in June 2012.

Most of its members decamped to The National Alliance (TNA) of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

PNU has a pact with TNA where it surrendered its right to field individual candidates during the last election and to support President Kenyatta’s bid.
