It has now emerged how President Uhuru Kenyatta took full control of the Jubilee Party Parliamentary Group meeting earlier on Tuesday at State House, Nairobi.
Multiple sources in the ruling party say that the Jubilee leader stamped his authority on it as he read the riot act to Tanga Tanga group-allied MPs.
The Head of State reportedly scolded the MPs for engaging in premature 2022 election campaigns and disrespecting him.
He then announced the reorganisation of the leadership of the Jubilee Party in the National Assembly.
Speaking to Citizen TV, Soy MP Caleb Kositany, an ally of Deputy President William Rut, said that it was more of a lecture session.
“After waiting for two hours, he came, made a speech of about 25 minutes and abruptly ended the meeting,” Kositany stated.
The party deputy secretary-general claimed that the President did not have time for people who had divergent views.
Even after they raised they hands seeking to give their views, the President dismissed them, instead asking them to leave the State House.
Kositany accused Garissa Town MP Aden Duale, who was retained as Majority Leader, for changing his tune to have the mercy of President Kenyatta.
The Soy MP taunted Duale for allegedly defecting from Ruto’s camp to avoid the purge.
However, the National Assembly Majority Leader defended himself, saying that he was only being wise.
In a interview with Citizen TV’s News Night, Duale said he was just obeying the 48 Laws of Power.
Asked which specific law he was guiding him as of now, the outspoken lawmaker said that Kenyans should interpret for themselves.
Some insiders who attended the PG meeting told a local daily that Duale’s case could be reviewed in the next few weeks if he continue showing allegiance to the second in command.
National Assembly Majority Leader Ben Washiali and his deputy, Cecily Mbarire, were ejected.
The Jubilee leader directed the new Majority Leader Emmanuel Wagwe to clean up parliamentary committees.
