Tharaka Nithi senator Kithure Kindiki is no longer the senate’s deputy speaker after the success of a motion fronted by majority whip Irungu Kang’ata.
The motion was seeking to oust Kindiki after his alleged disrespect to Jubilee shown on May 11 after he failed to honor the party’s PG meeting summoned by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Majority whip Irungu Kang’ata said the party had lost confidence in Prof. Kindiki and had no otherwise than to drop the purge on him.
The motion was supported by 54 members with 7 dissenting. Amazingly, Millicent Omanga who is a known Ruto fanatic voted in favor of the motion.
In his address, Mr.Kindiki rubbished the allegations the ouster was based on, owing his tribulation to some ‘powers of darkness’ but being grateful to his family, colleagues, and his constituents for standing in solidarity with him.
“In my struggle with the powers of darkness in the past one week, I rejoice in my tribulations. Harboring hate against them would work in their favor,” he said.
“If I don’t forgive them they will have succeeded in pulling me down into their dirty underground dungeons where they cook their hopeless scheme,”
“I respect their choice to be petty but they should know that humility is not cowardice and neither is silence a sign of ignorance,” Kindiki went on.
Among those to stand in solidarity is Gatundu South Moses Kuria who claimed the conspiracy against Kindiki was uncouth and based on jealousy.
“Dear Prof Kithure Kindiki. Pharaoh will sacrifice you today. But it’s a disguised admiration because you are a Meru educated professor and you are not a drug addict nor suffering deformities like their sons. Take heart brother,” Moses Kuria took to his Facebook.
Kipchumba Murkomen served with a Bible verse.
“To my brother Prof.Kithure Kindiki !
16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us[a] from Your Majesty’s hand. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up,”
