The four; Alfred Keter (Nandi Hills), Silas Tiren (Moiben), David Bowen (Marakwet) and Alex Kosgey (Emgwen) have continuously defied directives from the party leadership and Deputy President William Ruto to give up their committee leadership positions.
The four met with the DP where they openly told him off and refused to relinquish their seats which they rightfully won.
They were elected to the Labour and Social Welfare,Agriculture, Environment and Natural Resources, and Trade, Industry and Cooperatives committees respectively.
The rebellious legislators were together with their committee members on Wednesday asked to attend a meeting at State House at 8am.
”Mheshimiwa, This is to invite you for a consultative meeting with the Party leader tomorrow 18th Jan 2018 at 8.30am at State House Nairobi. Please be prompt,” a text message from the DP read.
A second SMS asked the MPs to confirm their attendance. It read: ”Mheshimiwa please confirm availability for the meeting at State House Nairobi Tomorrow (today) at 8.30am.”
Speaking to the Star, the four defiant MPs will apparently not make it to the 8am meeting being held at the house on the hill.
”This is such a petty issue. Why is he bringing the President in it? The President has a huge task of uniting the country and putting together his Cabinet and other important state matters,” Keter said.
Bowen on the other hand is at home where he is attending to ‘very pressing security issues and will be back on Monday.’
It is not clear why the top leadership wants the four gone but Keter reckons that they (Jubilee) want puppets to run the show as they are afraid of oversight.
