Jubilee clean-up

Following a parliamentary group meeting held by President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House two weeks ago, the ruling party has instituted a number of key changes in Senate.

Senators Murkomen, Susan Kihika (Nakuru) and Kithure Kindiki (Tharaka Nithi) are among the vocal senators who have lost their top seats.

The clean-up which has affected senators allied to deputy president William Ruto has sparked anxiety among members of the National Assembly.

The President is said to have convened a PG meeting for the National Assembly MPs which is rumoured to be aimed at executing similar changes to the August House.
