Jubilee Party Chief whip, Benjamin Jomo Washiali on Wednesday removed Alfred Keter(Nandi Hills) , Silas Tiren (Moiben), Alex Kosgey (Emgwen) and David Kangogo Bowen (Marakwet East) from House committees for not ‘cooperating with the party position.’
Keter was discharged from the committee of labour and social welfare, his counterpart from Emgwen from the trade, industry and cooperatives committee, and Bowen from the Environment and natural resources committee.
Washiali according to Kenyans admits to writing the letters but says that they have been updated and will be presented to Speaker Justin Muturi in due time.
”The letters are not fake, I wrote them. However, they have been updated and waiting to be presented to the Speaker.”
In 2016, Keter for example threatened to quit the party because ‘there is too much graft in the government.’
”You can quote me on this. Anyone you see supporting Jubilee is either stupid or corrupt,” the legislator said.
He went as far as asking the people to vote out the UhuRuto duo.
”The other name of Jubilee is corruption and you cannot describe corruption in Kenya without calling it Jubilee. I mean Jubilee and corruption are one and the same,” Keter told the Star.
