Kithure Kindiki has on Friday evening been bundled out as the Deputy Speaker following a vote that was supported by 54 Senators and disagreed by only 7 of them.
The motion was tabled on Tuesday by new majority Chief Whip Irungu Kang’ata citing lack of confidence of fellow Jubilee member.
His ouster also comes barely a month after the Deputy Speaker failed to attend a meeting called by party leader and President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House.
- Senator Murkomen and Kihika’s vehicles reclaimed
- Murkomen and Kihika replaced as majority leader and whip
Among those bundled out at the meeting was Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and counterpart Susan Kihika.
Those who failed to attend were threatened to face disciplinary action and risked being kicked out of their current position.
Troubles of the Deputy Senator began when he questioned the transfer of power of Nairobi County Government to the National Government.
Inside the Senate he was questioned over his stand and confidence in the President who is also his party leader.
He defended himself saying that those accusing him were not from the house nor was it the President who he said he has much respect for.
