Nominated Member of Parliament Godfrey Atieno Osotsi has been expelled from Amani National Congress (ANC) over errant behaviour.
The party’s National Executive Council (NEC) adopted the party’s disciplinary resolution that the member should be expelled over “wrongful conduct.”
In a statement on Wednesday, the party stated that the member ceases to enjoy party privileges.
“Hon. Godfrey Atieno Osotsi stands expelled from ANC. He is no longer a member of this Party and ceases to enjoy the privileges attendant to being a member of the Party, or to act on behalf of the Party in any way whatsoever, ” the press statement read in part.
The council, also summoned nominated Osotsi’s co-accused Senator Petronila Were to appear before the ANC Disciplinary Committee on Friday, 29 March and defend herself.
“Petronila Were is hereby summoned within 14 day to appear before the Disciplinary Committee and offer clarification to her response to allegations facing her.”
The two members faced charges of wrongful conduct, “arising from their respective tenures as ANC Party Secretary General and ANC Party Executive Officer, respectively.”
Following the expulsion, the party directed its clerk to strike off the name of Osotsi from the ANC Party Registers.
Osotsi has in the recent past had serious disagreements with ANC party officials including publicly attacking the party leader Musalia Mudavadi.
Last year, he hit out at NASA co-principals Musalia Mudavadi and Ford-Kenya leader Moses Wetangula over the planned merger of their two parties.
Osotsi termed the move as desperate, adding that it would only confuse the Luhya community ahead of the 2022 General Election.
