Thursday June 4, 2020 – Mumias East MP, Benjamin Washiali, has said that he does not regret losing his position as National Assembly Majority Whip.
Washiali and his deputy, Cecily Mbarire, were shown the door during the Tuesday meeting at State House attended by Deputy President William Ruto and 212 MPs.
The Mumias East lawmaker said that he welcomes the changes and will support the new Jubilee House team.
However, he vowed to remain with Dr Ruto no matter what.
“I am ready to give them back the seat if that is what they want.”
“Being the majority whip is not a matter of life and death.”
“I will not kneel before anyone begging to retain the position,” Mr Washiali said.
“The Deputy President has been in my constituency more than five times.”
“He stood by me even in times of grief.”
“Why should I abandon him?” he asked.
Washiali noted that he now has time to focus on other important things.
“I have my eyes on greater things and will devote much of my time serving Mumias East residents,” he said.
