In Summary
  • The party’s interim Secretary-General Arnold Maliba has promised to comply by the registrar’s decision.
  • Also in contention is the use of an eagle as a party symbol.
  • But Mr Maliba said the party had submitted other symbols for approval.

The Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu has warned the newly formed Transformation National Alliance Party (TNAP) against using the initials TNA.

The TNA acronym is similar to President Uhuru Kenyatta's defunct The National Alliance (TNA).

In a letter dated May 10, Ms Nderitu says her office approved the initials TNAP and not TNA.

She accused the party of highlighting the initials TNA and deliberately leaving out the P in an advertisement last week that invited applicants in the recruitment of 290 constituency coordinators to spearhead operations in its offices countrywide and to organise for party membership drive.

In a rejoinder, the party’s interim Secretary-General Arnold Maliba has promised to comply by the registrar’s decision.

PARTY SYMBOL

Also in contention is the use of an eagle as a party symbol which Ms Nderitu said is not approved in line with Section 6(3) of the Political Parties Act, 2011.
