Kalonzo Musyoka’s Wiper Party wants the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) to relinquish a seat in the powerful Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) for one of their own.
The Wiper party leader on Wednesday chaired the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting during which it was resolved that ODM should drop one of its members, Gladys Wanga for Borabu MP, Ben Momanyi.
Momanyi was on the original list but did not appear on the list presented to the National Assembly yesterday by leader of Majority Aden Duale.
Instead there was; Homa Bay Woman Representative Gladys Wanga, Aisha Jumwa (Malindi), and George Khaniri of Musalia Mudavadi’s ANC party.
”There has been disquiet in NASA over sharing of House leadership positions. We demand a revocation. We have instructed the party leader Kalonzo to get the positions shared as earlier agreed,” Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana said.
Jubilee nominees; Adan Keynan and Beth Mugo have also been disputed with some feeling that the two will not represent the legislators well.
”The general feeling among members is that they are uncomfortable with Keynan, whom they say has been in the PSC for too long. They also feel that Mugo is a gatekeeper for the Executive, forgetting her advocacy for members,” Chris Wamalwa said.
