Uhuru sends urgent message to MPs inviting them for impromptu meeting

Monday the 1st of June 2020 saw president Uhuru Kenyatta sending an urgent text to Jubilee legislators inviting them for a meeting at Statehouse on Tuesday the 2nd of June 2020.

The president further expects the invited MPs to be seated by 9 AM.

“Mheshimiwa, I wish to invite you for a Jubilee Coalition, National Assembly Parliamentary Group Meeting, at Statehouse Nairobi tomorrow, Tuesday the 2nd of June 2020 at 9 AM. Please be punctual, Uhuru Kenyatta, Party Leader,” read the text.

According to one of the invited MPs who sought anonymity, the meeting will touch on matters of general party housekeeping.

“We received a text message informing of the meeting. The agenda is expected to be a general party housekeeping.”

Policymakers are further expecting the purge in Jubilee party leadership to move on to Parliament.

May was a hectic month for DP Ruto allies in the Senate after Jubilee decided to demote some of them. Kipchumba Murkomen, Susan Kihika, and Kithure Kindiki all lost their positions. They were the senate majority leader, chief whip and deputy speaker of the Senate, respectively.

With the expected cleanup in Parliament, DP Ruto allies continue to adopt a wait and see attitude. Some of them include Kimani Ichungwa, Benjamin Wahiali, and Cecily Mbarire. They are; Budgets and appropriations committee member, the majority whip, and deputy whip, respectively.

However, President Uhuru, during an interview with NTV, claimed that he is not against anybody. He also said that he is also not for anybody. According to him, he is only cleaning up his party.

Raphael Tuju further echoed Uhuru’s words when he claimed that Jubilee would deal with any rebellious MPs.

“We will deal with those errant members. When it is Members of Parliament, we expect 100 percent fidelity to the contract they signed with the party. And we do have those contracts available for any inspection. When they were going for elections, they said they were going to support the party. They hanged on the goodwill of the party to get their positions. For them to now change tact midstream is nothing but a betrayal of the party,” Tuju said.
