Senate Deputy Speaker, Kithure Kindiki

Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga is among the Senators supporting the ouster of Tharaka Nithi senator Kithure Kindiki as the Deputy Speaker in new clean up measures.

The process was already initiated on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 where Majority Chief Whip Irungu Kang’ata filed the motion in the senate.

“I beg to move that this House resolves that Senator Kithure Kindiki be removed from the Office of the Deputy Speaker,” reads the notice by Kang’ata.

According to Kang’ata, the decision was arrived at following his absence at the State House parliamentary meeting convened by President Uhuru Kenyatta last week.

Kahawa Tungu had earlier reported that speculations indicated the position might be taken over by Uasin Gishu Senator Margaret Kamar.

This comes barely a week after Elgeiyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen was ousted as the Senate Majority Leader and replaced with Samuel Poghisio.

The latest purge also saw senators who failed to attend the meeting getting expelled from the party. Those who risked expulsion included Senators Falhada Dekow Iman, Naomi Jillo Waqo, Victor Prengei, Mary Seneta Yiane and Millicent Omanga on grounds of insubordination and gross misconduct.

Following the clean-up, the majority of the senators have changed tune and adhered to the President’s camp, leaving the DP hanging.
