Sunday, May 24,2020 – Majority Chief Whip in the Senate, Irungu Kangata, has said that the Jubilee Party is now going after members who defied the party`s orders and voted to Tharaka Nithi Senator, Prof Kithure Kindiki.
On Friday, 54 Senators impeached Prof Kithure as Deputy Speaker of the Senate while 7 Jubilee Senators opposed his impeachment.
Among the targeted is Nandi Senator, Samson Cherargei, who is the Chairman of the Committee on Justice, Legal Affairs and Human Rights, who voted to rescue Kindiki from ouster against the party`s will.
Others who are also on the list include Bomet Senator, Christopher Langat, who is the chairperson of the Senate Committee on Education as well as Laikipia Senator Nderitu Kinyua who is the chairperson of the Devolution and Intergovernmental Relations Committee
Also on the chopping board is Kericho Senator, Aaron Cheruiyot, who is a Commissioner to the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).
“Even in the National Assembly, those top leaders or committee chairpersons who are not doing that which they are expected to do to ensure the legacy of President Uhuru Kenyatta is engrained in this country, they are also going to be removed,” Kangata, who is also Muranga Senator, said.
