Seneta told KNU on Sunday she received a letter from Jubilee Party National Chairman, Nelson Dzuya asking her to show cause, why disciplinary action should not betake against her.

“The chairman asked me why I failed to promote and protect the interest of the ruling party. I intend to respond to him in writing within the stipulated time,” said Seneta.

Seneta was among the other four nominated senators from Jubilee, who on May 13, received letters from Dzuya on failing to report to State House after an invite was sent to them.

Others Incriminated

The others were; Iman Dekow, Waqo Jillo, Prengei Victor and Millicent Omanga.

Seneta told her supporters, friends, family, constituents, and Kenyans at large that since 2010 when she joined active politics, she has been steadfast in supporting her party leadership.

“At all times, I have stood by my party in and outside Parliament. Suffice it to say, I have always been known to tow the party lines even when matters seem to go south,” said Seneta.

The nominated senator in 2013, clinched the Kajiado County Women representative seat through the sponsorship of TNA.

When TNA merged with URP, she said, she was in the frontline in supporting the new union.

General Elections

In 2017, she contested for the Kajiado East MP and lost to MP Peris Tobiko in the party primaries.

“Even after the loss, I continued supporting Jubilee and thus my nomination to the senate. In short, I have been a lifelong Jubilee member,” she said.

Seneta said that as it happened in the build-up to the party meeting convened by the party on May 12, 2020, at State House, she was ready to give her full support but was unwell.

“However, as the current events continue to play out, I assure you that I do not diminish the decisions of the Jubilee Party. I will continue to play my part, alongside your support to make the party stronger and enable it to serve and lead the people of Kenya to greater heights of prosperity,” said the lawmaker.

Admission of Guilt

She told her supporters the allegations of misconduct listed by JP do not imply guilt in the absence of a conviction or admission of guilt.

“I believe party disciplinary procedures are political, not judicial. As I wait for the party disciplinary process I wish to thank everyone for your concern and support,” she said.

She said her support for her party leader has been constant at all times and supports the party in the implementation of policies, directives, bills, and that she is always ready to assist the party to deliver to the people of Kenya.
