Days After the political disputes tribunal gave green light for the expulsion of nominated Jubilee senators, Mary Seneta, Falhada Iman, Naomi Wago, Victor Prengei, Millicent Omanga and Isaac Mwaura, their Tharaka Nithi counterpart, prof. Kithure Kindiki has weighed in on the issue.
Prof Kindiki who had also suffered Jubilee purge after he was removed from deputy senate speaker seat has argued that it is wrong for the party to expel the six over ''petty'' offenses.
Kindiki says that non attendance of the Jubilee party PG meeting by the six was not enough to expel them, he argues that the the notification for the meeting itself was through text message and several elected senators skipped therefore the punishment should be lighter.
He added that the explosion process failed to adhere to all critical requirements laid out in the constitution, Kindiki suggests that a petition should be filled before a constitutional court to overturn the expulsion of the senators as it discriminate and isolate the senators he added that the move is undermines the stature, esteem and dignity of representatives of women, youth and persons with disabilities in parliament.
