Laikipia Woman Representative Cate Waruguru has opened up on plan by ruling party, Jubilee, to crack whip on MPs allied to Deputy President William Ruto.
Jubilee in a letter to five MPs, asked them to explain why they should not be expelled after shifting their allegiance to United Democratic Alliance (UDA) run by DP Ruto.

National Assembly Majority Whip, Emmanuel Wangwe, revealed that the party sent show-cause letters to MPs and is waiting for their explanations on which the leadership of the party will decide either to keep or de-whip them.
“Pursuant to Standing Orders 176 (1) and 176 (2) you are here notified that Jubilee Party nominated you for the departmental Committee on Communication Information and Technology. You are hereby given seven days to respond before you are discharged from the said Committee,” the letters read in part.

“in the sector spearheaded by the Committee.I have complete confidence in my colleagues who are equally qualified to be part of the committee. I hereby reiterate my unequivocal support for UDA and it’s ideologies.Mi Sipangwingwi,” she added.
