The Wiper Party on Thursday resolved to kick out rebels who include Governor Alfred Mutua and six other MPs for publicly supporting other parties.

The six MPs are Regina Ndambuki (Kilome), Joe Mutambu (Mwingi Central), Robert Mutemi (nominated), John Munuve (Mwingi North), Kisoi Munyao (Mbooni) and Richard Makenga (Kaiti).

The committee however pardoned Nominated MP Robert Mutemi citing lack of evidence.

The committee, chaired by Lillian Omondi, resolved leaders had openly showed and declared support for other political parties and as such, were deemed to have resigned from the party that took them to Parliament.

“The disciplinary committee finds that his conduct expressly and constructively amounts to publicly advocating for the formation of another political party and promoting the interests, ideologies and policies of Maendeleo Chap Chap which is not a member of the Cord,” the committee said.

After growing diffrences between Mutua and the Wiper Party, the governor formed the Maendeleo Chap Chap in September.

Conduct of rebel leaders

The NEC later instructed the party’s disciplinary committee to deliberate on the issue of rebel MPs and report back to them.

However, the rebel leaders later snubbed the disciplinary committee’s summons to appear before them citing short notices.

Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka in September put on notice the rebel who defected to the Jubilee party, saying that they must brace themselves for by-elections.

Musyoka said a by-election must be conducted in all the five constituencies in Ukambani whose representatives had shifted loyalty to President Uhuru Kenyatta.

However, the defiant MPs dared Musyoka to expel and subject them to by-elections and declared they would not allow themselves to be intimidated by anyone for working closely with the government for the betterment of their constituents.
