Last month, following a leaked letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta regarding the unpopularity of the BBI, Kang’ata claimed he might lose his position as Senate Majority Chief Whip.

Kang’ata also clarified that he did not author the January 4, 2021 letter but admitted to writing to the President on December 30, 2020.
