The Jubilee Party has expelled nominated Senators who snubbed a Parliamentary Group meeting called by President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday.
Those expelled include Falhada Dekow Iman, Naomi Jillo Waqo, Victor Prengei, Mary Seneta Yiane and Millicent Omanga.
Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju says they were expelled for gross insubordination, gross misconduct. He says that despite the Senators receiving invitation messages, they did not even bother to send apologies for not attending meeting.
The Party has also announced that it will take action against rebels in parliament including recall.
“If they have any illusions that we will make the mistakes made by ODM and ANC with respect to unsuccessful expulsion of some of their members, we have learnt our lesson and are going to follow due process,” said Tuju.
Senator Christine Zawadi was spared after she wrote a letter to Mr Kang’ata apologising for skipping the meeting.
“I did not attend the Jubilee PG meeting at State House … because of … barriers that have been erected by the government to contain the spread of Covid-19,” said Ms Zawadi.
The five will face the disciplinary committee and their fate announced in a week’s time.
