Five Senators from the North Rift region are supporting the removal of Senator Kithure Kindiki as Senate Deputy Speaker.
The notice of motion for the removal of Senate Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki was moved on Tuesday afternoon by the Senate Majority Whip Irungu Kang’ata.
Senator Kang’ata said he initiated the process for the removal of Prof Kindiki after the Tharaka Nithi senator failed to attend a Jubilee Parliamentary Group meeting where allies of Deputy President William Ruto were shown the door last week.
So far, 48 senators support the motion for the removal of Prof Kindiki.
Five senators from the North Rift region who have signed the motion to kick out Kindiki from his seat include Samuel Poghisio(West Pokot) Michael Mbito(Trans Nzoia) Margaret Kamar(Uasin Gishu) Gideon Moi(Baringo) and Chebeni Mercy(Nominated- Uasin Gishu).
