Kirinyaga County Governor Anne Mumbi Waiguru has told Jubilee members to either respect the party’s leader and President Uhuru Kenyatta or resign from their positions.
The embattled Governor while speaking at Kithiriti Primary School where she was distributing face masks stated that it was very dangerous to have a party that has no discipline.
She added that every party in the country has a code of conduct that members follow. She went on to stress out that the Jubilee party is not intimidating anybody but members have to adhere to the party’s constitution and the code of conduct.
She explained that everybody signed the code of conduct before they got their nomination certificates. She stated that the code of conduct stated that members would recognize the party leader and the structures within the party.
She mentioned that it was not possible to run the government with indiscipline urging the party leadership to continue removing anyone who was going against the party’s manifesto.
She explained that the move would enable other members to deliver their promises to their people and pass bills in Parliament.
“At this point and time, we need to crack the whip. If somebody is not satisfied with the Jubilee, they have options. There are very many parties in Kenya you can go to another party. But if you are in Jubilee party you need to adhere to the constitution and the least you can do is respect his Excellency the President,” she stated.
She stated that only those individuals who share the President’s vision should chair various parliamentary committees to help him realize the big four agenda.
The Kirinyaga County boss’ sentiments come days after it was reported that the party was expected to remove Kithure Kindiki as Deputy Speaker.
It has been reported that 48 Senators are in agreement with the motion and had already attached their signatures and I.D numbers to the document.
A few weeks ago, Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika and Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen were replaced from their positions as Chief Whip and Majority Leader from the Senate respectively.
