It is said the President is now headed to recall Deputy President William Samoei Ruto's diehard supporter MPs after successfully humiliating Senate Majority Leader, Kipchumba Murkomen on Monday.

Hiding under cover of Coronavirus pandemic, President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered the expulsion of Jubilee senators who snubbed his Monday state house invite.

Jubilee Party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju, in an alert, says they have already been invited to appear before a disciplinary committee to explain their gross insubordination and misconduct.

“They will leave the party because of receiving state house invitation messages and not even bothering to send apologies for not attending the meeting,” said Tuju.

Those expelled includes; Falhada Dekow Iman, Naomi Jillo Waqo, Victor Prengei, Mary Seneta Yiane, and Millicent Omanga. 

No Comment

Talking to Kajiado’s nominated senator, Mary Seneta, on Wednesday evening, she told KNU she would not wish to make any comment at that moment.

President Kenyatta is said to be now targeting sitting rebel MPs for recalling.

Nominated Senator Mary Seneta, says she has no comment.

This is happening only three days after the president ignited the removal of two DP William Ruto’s allies from the senate on Monday.

The High Court Tuesday certified as urgent an application by ousted Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen and Majority Whip Susan Kihika opposing their removal from the Jubilee Party Senate leadership.

In the case before Justice James Makau, Murkomen and Kihika listed Jubilee Party, its secretary-general Raphael Tuju, chairman Nelson Dzuya, Kanu, the Registrar of Political Parties, and Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka as respondents.

Blatant Violation

“The respondents have in blatant violation of the law engaged in an illegal coalition, whereafter, have purported with the strength of the said coalition to remove the Majority Leader and Majority Whip of the Senate in blatant disregard of lawful procedures,” Murkomen and Kihika argued in the pleadings.

The case will be mentioned Thursday when directions on compliance will be made. Murkomen and Kihika have been allowed to serve the respondents via e-mail.

In the case, Murkomen and Kihika protest their removal from their offices saying the threshold for their ouster had not been met.
