Wednesday, June 3, 2020 – Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, is among a group of MPs from Jubilee Party who have been removed from National Assembly committees over alleged disloyalty.
Nearly all the MPs who were removed from committees are close allies of Deputy President William Ruto.
Kuria was the first MP to publish a letter of notice for removal from the Transport Committee by the Jubilee Party Chief Whip, Emannuel Wangwe.
“Pursuant to Standing Orders 176 (1) and 176 (2) you are hereby notified that the Jubilee party which nominated you intends to discharge you, you are hereby given 7 days to respond before you are discharged,” read Wangwe’s letter.
MP, Nixon Koriri, was axed from the Labour and Social Welfare Committee, Endebess MP, Pukose, from the Energy Committee and Aldai MP from the Trade, Industry and Co-Operative Committee.
Kikuyu MP, Kimani Ichungwah, was also removed as the chairperson of the Budget and Appropriations Committee.
President Uhuru Kenyatta accused the MPs of focusing on 2022 succession politics at the expense of promoting his development agenda.
