Bahati MP claimed he was Jubilee was planning on kicking out rebel lawmakers in key counties.

They are planning to follow us to the constituencies especially in key counties like Nakuru to try and make us unpopular," Ngunjiri said.

"We know the purge will soon shift to key counties and some of us are the target. We ask those pushing for that agenda to wait because the General Election is just around the corner,” he continued.

Some of the targeted MPs reportedly said they had not been served with summoning letters.
