Murkomen, Kihika move to court terming their demotion illegal.

In what will be an interesting court battle, Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen and Majority Whip Susan Kihika have decided to use the judiciary opposing their removal from the Jubilee Party Senate leadership.

In the case before Justice James Makau, Mr Murkomen and Ms Kihika lists Jubilee Party, its secretary-general Raphael Tuju, chairman Nelson Dzuya, Kanu, the Registrar of Political Parties, and Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka as respondents.

The two politicians allied the the Deputy President William Ruto insist that the there was no quorum in the State House meeting that saw the election of West Pokot Senator Samuel Poghisio and his Murang’a counterpart Irungu Kang’ata as leader of senate majority and whip respectively.

in what was a win for the Ruot supporters, the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal (PPDT) suspended the  implementation of the KANU-Jubilee deal that saw KANU senators participate in the controversial vote. In a ruling, the PPDT suspended any action accruing from the deal which the Registrar of Political Parties confirmed on May 8.

In other news, the President has called for a Jubilee parliamentary Group meeting at State House that may see the Ruto Allied Mps who serve in various committee leadership position lose their posts. Sources say that the same will follow in cabinet positions where Ruto’s support in cabinet will be reduced further complicating the once upon a time close Uhuru’s number one supporter and campaigner.

Kenyans are however divided in the issue some in support of Uhuru’s action saying he has a right to whip those who fail to respect his authority while others feel that its not fair fighting the Deputy President who sacrificed his position to support the President in 3 consecutive elections.
