Rebel Jubilee MPs put on notice

The Jubilee party has warned against any form of insubordination from its members.

Ten members of parliament closely associated with the deputy president said the party is using state agencies to intimidate and harass them.

The MPs under Kimani Ngunjiri of Bahati guidance said there’s was an intricate plan to arrest the members.

He added they’d fabricated charges using theĀ Ethics and Anti- Corruption Commission (EACC) Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), and Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA).

Disregarding the President

However, on Thursday while speaking at parliament buildings, Senate Majority Leader Irungu Kang’ata said it was a taste of their own medicine.

For a long time, the legislatures disrespected the President in public gatherings.

“These individuals don’t respect the President as they’ve continuously contradicted him in public. They’ve repeatedly abused the Head of State, and I have to ensure they face disciplinary actions,” explained Senator Irungu.

Additionally, Mr. Kang’ata said he’ll push for a motion to oust Kithure Kindiki. The majority leader said he’ll present the proposal during today’s special sitting.

Mr. Kindiki and five nominated senators face accusations of failing to attend a meeting convened by the President two weeks ago.

Party constitution

The meeting held two weeks ago involved discussions around the removal of Kipchumba Murkomen as the majority leader. Also, they discussed the removal of Susan Kihika as the Senate chief whip.

“We’ll continue taking stringent measures against those disobeying the party’s constitution. All I’m doing is enforcing those rules under the instructions of the party leadership,” added Mr. Kang’ata.

Simultaneously during Kang’ata’s speech, renegade MPs led by Silvanus Osoro of South Mugirango said they wouldn’t be bullied into submission.

He added that using the EACC, DCI, and KRA is a plan to wear them out through court battles, but they remain united.

Possible threats

On the other hand, some MPs from the Jubilee coalition reported to the DCI danger to their lives.

However, Raphael Tuju, the Jubilee secretary-general, asked them to stop diverting attention and deal with issues at hand.
