Saturday September 21, 2019-A section of Jubilee Party members have asked Jubilee Party leaders to expel nominated MP, Maina Kamanda, from the party for endorsing a rival candidate in the upcoming Kibra parliamentary by-election.
On Thursday, Maina who is nominated by Jubilee Party, threw his weight behind Imran Okoth of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) and denounced Jubilee's McDonald Mariga.
Now leaders led by Kirinyaga Women Representative, Purity Ngirici, asked for the expulsion of Maina from Jubilee for supporting ODM candidate.
Ngirici said if Kamanda will go unpunished, his move will encourage more members to revolt against the party led by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“He has abused a privilege of being a nominated MP that we gave him as Jubilee Party. If he no longer holds the ideology of the ruling party then he should resign and join the opposition. His position can be given to other deserving leaders,” Ngirici said.
Her Kimilili counterpart Didmus Barasa expressed similar sentiments, arguing that those not supporting Mariga should not go unpunished.
“In fact, Jubilee members who are against this quest should be disciplined for going against the Political Parties Act," Barasa stated.
