Today the senate house embarked on its parliamentary proceedings after yesterday's president Uhuru Kenyatta state of nation address. The morning session was led by senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka. Several senators attended the morning session and the session was aired live on speaker Kenneth Lusaka official Facebook page.
During the morning senate session, speaker Kenneth Lusaka reinstated back ousted Jubilee nominated senator Isaac Mwaura to the senate house. This is after High Court reversed the ruling made by speaker Kenneth Lusaka. The senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka revealed this information through a letter he shared on his official Facebook page.
After senator Isaac Mwaura reinstatement, Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen warmly welcomed the ousted Jubilee nominated senator Isaac Mwaura back to the senate house. The vocal senator wrote this on his official Twitter account.
" Welcome back to the senate senator Issac Mwaura. In the end the truth has prevailed and your tormentors have been put to shame. Your lawyers are proud of you and we celebrate the rule of law and independence of our judiciary. The Lord will repay you for the years that the locusts have eaten" senator Kipchumba Murkomen wrote on his official Twitter account.
Senator Isaac Mwaura was among six senators ousted by Jubilee party due to party disloyalty. The senators were nominated by Jubilee party in 2017 to represent several lobby groups. Other ousted included: senator Milicent Omanga and the late senator Victor Prengei. All of them are close allies and supporters of deputy president William Ruto.
