Gatundu South’s Moses Kuria is among MPs targeted in the ongoing purge within President Kenyatta’s Jubilee party.
Kuria together with three other MPs was on Wednesday served with a notice for removal from their respective committees in the National Assembly.
The four received letters from the newly-elected National Assembly Majority Whip Emmanuel Wangwe asking them to justify why they should not be ejected from the committees.
Apart from Kuria, the other three MPs are Joyce Korir (Bomet Woman Representative), Robert Pukose (Endebess), and Cornelly Serem (Aldai).
MP Korir is to be axed from the Labor and Social Welfare Committee, Kuria from Transport, Public Works and Housing Committee, Robert Pukose from the Energy Committee, and Cornelly Serem from the Trade, Industry and Co-operative Committee.
“Pursuant to Standing Orders 176 (1) and 176 (2) you are hereby notified that the Jubilee party which nominated you intends to discharge you, you are hereby given 7 days to respond before you are discharged,” the letter read.
The planned removal of the four allies of Deputy President William Ruto comes a day after Benjamin Washiali and Cecily Mbarire were stripped of their National Assembly Majority Whip and Deputy Majority Whip positions respectively.
The two were kicked out during a parliamentary group meeting chaired by President Kenyatta at State House on Tuesday and replaced by Navakholo MP Emmanuel Wangwe and Igembe North MP Maoka Maore.
