Former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party has singled out four “rebel” Members of Parliament for possible expulsion.

The party has accused nominated MP Sabina Chege, Kanini Kega (East African Legislative Assembly), Adan Keynan (Eldas) and Isiolo Senator Fatuma Dullo of instigating an internal rebellion.

The four are accused of initiating a recent visit to state house where Jubilee elected leaders met with and declared their support for President William Ruto. 

Others who attended the meeting were MPs David Kiaraho (Ol Kalou), Irene Njoki (Bahati), Zachary Kwenya (Kinangop), Shadrack Mwiti (South Imenti), Mark Mwenje (Embakasi West), Amos Mwago (Starehe), Dan Karitho (Igembe Central), Stanley Muthama (Lamu West) and Joseph Githuku (Lamu), Omar Shurie (Balambala) and John Waluke (Sirisia).

The party on Saturday wrote to the four lawmakers informing them of impending punishment for defying the outfit.

Jubilee Secretary-General Jeremiah Kioni told Nation.Africa that the party will do everything including expelling the MPs so as to restore discipline.

The four are set to be summoned to appear before its disciplinary committee to respond to accusations of being disloyal to the party.

“We are in a receipt of a petition from one of our members of the party accusing you of among other things; acting in a manner disloyal to Jubilee Party, advanced positions that are contrary to the position of Jubilee Party; demonstrated lack of respect to the decision made by Jubilee party and demonstrated lack of disrespect for the party organs,” state the letters issued to each of the four lawmakers.
