Security has been beefed up at Jubilee party headquarters with a contingent of armed police officers manning the building as a team of rebel Tanga Tanga lawmakers appeared at the party headquarters, led by Kipchumba Murkomen.
Murkomen arrived at the party headquarters based in Pangani to represent three lawmakers allied to DP Ruto who were summoned by the Jubilee party.
The Elgeyo Marakwet Senator is at the building to represent Ann Thumbi, Sylvia Museiya, and Millicent Jagero who were summoned to appear before the Jubilee Disciplinary Committee at 10.00 a.m today.
In a letter dated November 24, 2020, the MCAs were summoned for, among others, their gross misconduct, going against the party position after the County Assembly majority whip Paul Kados raised the matter on November 4th, 2020.
“You are hereby required to appear on November 27, 2020, at 10:00 AM when the complaint against you will be heard by this committee at Jubilee party Headquarters in accordance with the Jubilee Party Disciplinary Committee Regulations, 2017,” read the letter from Jubilee Party.
They were also accused of disregarding the party position as captured in the memorandum from the Governor on the County Assembly Appropriation bill 2020, and also compromising the party leadership, by openly associating with other people against the party position.
Taking to social media account shortly after their arrival at the party headquarters, the vocal senator wrote.
“Currently at Jubilee Party HQs to appear before the Jubilee Party National Disciplinary Committee on behalf of Nairobi MCAs Hons. Ann Thumbi, Sylvia Museiya, and Millicent Jagero being intimidated with trumped-up charges to coerce them to violate the Constitution of Kenya.” Wrote Kipchumba Murkomen.
They had since downplayed the summonses stating that they had nothing to do with the County budget and the appropriation bill Governor but their open support for the DP Ruto and stand on BBI.
“I can clearly tell what this is about and I know it is about my stand against the BBI. But I will appear before the disciplinary committee,” Museiya said.
