National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale has been spared in the ongoing purge within the Jubilee Party.
Duale, who is the MP for Garissa Township, retained his position following a parliamentary group meeting convened and chaired by President Kenyatta at State House on Tuesday.
Others who retained their positions include National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, Deputy Speaker Moses Cheboi, and Deputy Majority Leader Jimmy Angwenyi.
During the meeting attended by 212 MPs, National Assembly Majority Whip Benjamin Washiali and Deputy Majority Whip Cecily Mbarire were stripped of their positions.
Washiali was replaced by Navakholo MP Emmanuel Wangwe while Igembe North MP Maoka Maore replaced Mbarire.
At the same time, Kipipiri MP Amos Kimunya was appointed to serve as the Secretary of the Jubilee Coalition Joint Parliamentary Group.
Others who attended the PG meeting include Deputy President William Ruto (Deputy Party Leader), and Jubilee Party secretary-general Raphael Tuju.
The changes in the National Assembly leadership come two weeks after a similar cleanup in the Senate, where DP Ruto allies Senators Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo-Marakwet) and Susan Kihika (Nakuru) were ousted.
The two, who served as Majority Leader and Majority Whip, were replaced by Senators Samuel Poghisio (West Pokot) and Irungu Kang’ata (Murang’a) respectively.
Senate Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki, another Ruto ally, was also impeached.
