Murathe warns Jubilee MPs planning to boycott PG meeting

Jubilee Vice-chairperson David Murathe has sounded a warning to members of parliament planning to boycott the Parliamentary Group meeting convened by President Kenyatta.

In a post on his Facebook account, Murathe said that missing the PG meeting should be unthought of by any member and that strict disciplinary action will be taken to those who miss the meeting scheduled for Monday morning at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC).

“Missing tomorrow’s PG meeting should not come to anyone’s mind. Disciplinary actions are crystal clear in the Jubilee Party Act to those who are deviating from the fundamental requirements of the party,” Murathe wrote.

He added that the disloyalty and disobedience to the party leader must end.

“In the recent, we have witnessed a lot of disloyalty, insubordination, impunity, disobedience and direct insults to our party leader. That must come to an end.”

President Kenyatta is expected to address the meeting through a video platform after four State House staff tested positive for coronavirus.

The meeting is expected to discuss the fate of National Assembly majority leader Aden Duale.

President Kenyatta recently received a petition signed by 130 MPs to remove Duale from the majority leader position on grounds of lack of confidence in his leadership.

After the June 2 PG meeting held at Statehouse, Duale’s fate was seen to be hanging on a weak branch with Kieni MP Kanini Kega collecting signatures to kick him out.

The very meeting saw the ouster of National Assembly Majority Whip Benjamin Washiali and his deputy Cecily Mbarire.
