During a charged-up senate session in the Senates special seating to remove its Deputy speaker, The Hon. Prof. Kithure Kindiki, Senate Minority Leader who is also ODMs senator for Siaya county hinted at an upcoming role the senate may be required to play in two to three months.
Senator Orengo said, “This House will be Required to Play A Critical Role in 2 or 3 Months”. This statement alone has sent Kenyans on social media wondering what the senior counsel meant.
The senate debate has revealed deep divisions in Jubilee party that pity the president against his deputy President Dr. William Ruto.
Majority of jubilees senators tore the line to side with the party position to kick out senator Kithure Kindiki. Quite ironical is the fact that nominated senators who voted out Prof.Kindiki for not appearing at the State house meeting held to remove Kipchumba Murkomen and Susan Kihika from their positions as majority leader and Chief Whip respectively had not attended the same meeting either.
Orengo’s coded message has sent many guesting what he might have meant. Could it be that they senate will deliberate on the BBI changes or will it vote to impeach the Deputy President from his position.
Speculations have been rife within many circles that the ground is being prepared for a possible impeachment of the Deputy President and that is why there is need for these changes to happen.
With the removal of Senator Kithure Kindiki as Deputy Speaker has sent a clear message to all Tanga Tanga wing of the Jubilee party.
It remains to be seen if the same purge will extend to parliament, where it is hope that those members of the Jubilee party allied to Deputy President will be shown the door.
We are living in quite intriguing times and this is the best time to learn Kenyan politics.
