Five nominated senators from the Jubilee Party are reported to have been shown the door sources hinting the expulsion was led to by their decision to snub the embattled Parliamentary Group meeting that took place at State House on Monday, May 11.
Through a statement released on Wednesday, May 13, by the party, Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju faulted the legislators for gross misconduct and insubordination of the party’s leadership.
The senators are Iman Falhada Dekow, Waqo Naomi Jillo, Prengei Victor, Mary Yiane, and Millicent Omanga.
The statement further claimed informed that the senators were notified of the meeting but wouldn’t even bother to send their apologies in an event that they fail to attend.
Jubilee Party members allied to Deputy President William Ruto have maintained that they were unaware of the meeting that led to the ouster of Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen as Senate Majority Leader.
The ejection of the five tends to inform more fierce debate in the party as the prevalent Jubilee purge evidently focuses on lawmakers and politicians allied to DP Ruto.
