Thursday May 14, 2020 – Deputy President William Ruto’s blogger, Denis Itumbi, has shared his thoughts about the expulsion of five Senators from Jubilee for allegedly snubbing the Parliamentary Group meeting convened by President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House.
Venting on his social media page, Itumbi said that despite the suspension of the Senators, the Jubilee Party did not have the luxury of choosing other Senators as they pleased.
He alleged that there was a list of Nominated Senators that had been gazetted before the 2017 General Elections.
“Even if you succeed to remove Nominated Senators on the nonsensical grounds so disclosed, you do not have the luxury to bring whoever you want.”
“The Constitution and the law has already made that decision.”
“Your alternative is already on a list gazetted long before elections,” Itumbi stated.
Further, he warned that Deputy President William Ruto’s allies will not be intimidated by the current happenings in the Jubilee Party.
Some of the nominated Senators that were affected by the suspension included Iman Falhada Dekow, Waqo Naomi Jillo, Prengei Victor, Mary Yiane and Millicent Omanga.
The Senators were accused of gross insubordination and misconduct.
Their suspension came days after Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen, and Nakuru Senator, Susan Kihika, were ousted as the Majority Leader and Majority Whip respectively.
