Uhuru summons 4 Jubilee MPs to State House
Trouble in Jubilee party.
The four include: Nandi Hills' MP Alfred Keter, Moiben’s Silas Tiren, Marakwet MP David Bowen and Emgwen's Alex Kosgey.
Kenyatta made the decision after the four Lawmakers defied an order by the Deputy President William Ruto to resign from there respective committees which they had been elected to head.Keter (Labour and Social Welfare, Tiren (Agriculture), Bowen (Environment and Natural Resources) and Kosgey (Trade, Industry and Cooperatives). However, all the four MPs have indicated that they will not make it to the meeting scheduled for today (Thursday) at 8: 00 am stating that they're committed to other duties.“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 was quoted by the Star.
Jubilee de-whips the 4 MPs
Earlier, Jubilee had de-whipped the 4 legislators for failing to toe in line with the election of various parliamentary committee heads.
The High Court would later rescind the decision by the party to expunge their names from the list of chairpersons from the committees.
