rok and the diaspora, has not reported to Jubilee headquarters since the office opened last week.
Ongera who hails from Kitengela ward of Kajiado East constituency was hired by the president’s party over Easter last year. His was the link between the office, party officials and members in the three counties of Kajiado, Narok and the diaspora.

Born 45 years ago, Ongera got into elections management in 1992 while doing his undergraduate studies at Egerton University during the mlolongo voting process.
He has done civic and voter educations for various local and international institutions like the Les Aspin Center for Government of USA and persons like justice Smoking Wanjala of the Supreme Court and Kivutha Kibwana the Makueni governor.

The former employee is an experienced elections monitor having observed elections for the Media Institute, the UN and the institute of education in democracy.

KNU could not reach him for comment as his phones went unanswered.

Jubilee fired about 200 workers early last week, KNU reliably learnt. Those affected by the changes include members of the secretariat, senior directors and county coordinators.

This came as the officers resumed from the holidays on January 9, and was unexpected.

This has seen most of the party operatives who delivered President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory and contributed to Jubilee’s majority in both Houses of Parliament lose their jobs.
The party says the restructuring is meant to strengthen it.

But sources said the dismissals could have been triggered by 2022 succession politics and expectations of a huge compensation from Political Parties Fund.

Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju confirmed the job cuts on Friday, but did not disclose how many employees had been fired. Tuju said the party wanted a leaner team.

The restructuring, he said, would enable the party be more sustainable.

“We have to cut our cloth according to our size. We want to hire and we will do that according to our needs,” said Tuju. He said the 70,000 volunteers used during the elections were among those fired.
