The Pangani headquarters was the party’s nerve centre in the last polls and houses offices crucial to its operations.
In August 2021, the Jubilee Party was put on the spot for spending over KSh 87 million on rent for its headquarters.
Auditor General Nancy Gathungu put the party on the spot after failing to register the lease agreement for the property.
The Registered Land Act requires the registration of leases for a specified period exceeding two years.
“In the circumstances, the regularity of the lease agreements and the resultant payment could not be confirmed,” Gathungu said.
