6 more Jubilee Party members of parliament are set to be discharged from various House committees.
In a letter signed by deputy majority whip Maoka Maore dated June 24, the six were asked to respond within seven days or risk losing their positions.
They are; Julius Melly (Education), Ali Wario (Labour and Social Welfare), William Kisang (Communication, Information and Innovation), Joseph Limo of Finance and National Planning and Parliamentary Broadcasting and Library’s Joash Nyamoko.
They join 16 others who were expelled from various committees last week. They are presumed to be allies of Deputy President William Ruto.
On Monday, majority leader Aden Duale was replaced by Kipipiri MP Amos Kimunya. This was during another Jubilee Party parliamentary group meeting chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta at KICC.
The president has in the past noted that those standing in his way will be pushed out.
He was referring to the realization of the Big 4 Agenda.
On Thursday, the House made radical changes in the Committee on Selection, kicking out those assumed to be rebels.
The new members include: Maore, Jane Wanjuki (Embu),Gathoni Wamuchomba(Kiambu), Joshua Kutuny(Cherangany), Maina Kamanda (nominated) and Shurie Omar (Mbalambala). Others appointed are Wachira Kabinga (Mwea), Eseli Simuyu (Tongaren) and Nominated MP Godfrey Osotsi.
