Last evening, 51 members signed to support a motion to kick out Kindiki confirming that the party will be kicking out Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki from the powerful position of deputy speaker.
Senate Majority Whip Irungu Kang’ata said the decision was arrived at after Kindiki skipped the State House parliamentary group meeting called by the President last week in reports that at least two senators approached to replace him.
Irungu Kang’ata confirms that the process will begin from Monday with the drafting of a motion to kick out the deputy speaker and will be tabled the day after.
Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga who also skipped the State House PG meeting will also be recalled from the powerful Senate Public Accounts Committee where she is a member, should the changes be effected.
“Tomorrow I will be drafting a motion that will be taken to the senate on Tuesday to recall deputy speaker… This will now be upon the House Business Committee. The move is because he has not given reasons why he did not attend the pg meeting,” said Kangata.
