That nominated Senator Hon Millicent Omanga has made a complete 180 degrees U-turn is no longer a matter of pundits but a plain clear midday move witnessed by all and sundry; she crossed the floor to Kieleweke camp in a majestic walk with zero chills.
After pledging her loyalty to President Uhuru, the well endowed Senator crowned it all by being true to ‘kusema na kutenda’ by joining Senators allied to Kieleweke who have signed a motion to remove Senate Deputy Speaker Prof Kithure Kindiki.
Now, Ruto’s own big machine has turned against her own team mates, she is vicious but remember she is doing all these because DP Ruto cannot save her butt like before, she must do it herself .
The Jubilee party clean-up process started a week ago with the kicking out of Senate Majority Leader Hon Onesimus Kipchumba Murkomen and Majority Whip Hon Susan Kihika (daughter of DYNASTY late Hon Kihika Kimani who was President Moi’s top sycophant).
The process to remove Prof Kindiki from the powerful Deputy Speaker position was initiated on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 by Majority Chief Whip Hon Irungu Kang’ata who filed a motion seeking removal of Kindiki.
“I beg to move that this House resolves that Senator Kithure Kindiki be removed from the Office of the Deputy Speaker,” – reads part of Hon Kang’ata’s motion.
According to Kang’ata, the decision was arrived at following Kindiki’s absence without apology at the State House parliamentary group meeting convened by Party Leader President Uhuru Kenyatta last week.
Speculation is live that the position might be taken over by Uasin Gishu Senator Margaret Kamar.
The Jubilee party clean-up also saw Senators who failed to attend the meeting served with disciplinary action. Those who risked expulsion and thus losing their seats include Senators Falhada Dekow Iman, Naomi Jillo Waqo, Victor Prengei, Mary Seneta Yiane and Millicent Omanga on grounds of insubordination and gross misconduct.
Following the warnings from Secretary General Raphael Tuju, majority of the Senators have changed tune and are now tucked in the president’s corner and will strike anybody, anywhere, and at anytime as will be ordered by the party machinery thus leaving deputy president vulnerable and his dark dry ass exposed badly.
According to the standing orders, removal of a Deputy Speaker requires a two-thirds majority vote of the House. The motion therefore required 45 out of the 67 Senators to support it for a successful ouster.
