Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura now says that attempts to eject him from the ruling Jubilee Party will soon kick off, saying that this is the long term goal behind the allegations being levelled against him.
He on Thursday appeared before the party Disciplinary Committee over claims of among others, wearing branding material associated with another party, which goes against the ruling outfit's constitution.
He, however, termed the disciplinary process part of the plan to have him kicked out, terming Jubilee Chairman Nelson Dzuya and his deputy David Murathe as some of the people after his removal from Jubilee.
"You already have a determined position. David Murathe has actually said am going to be expelled and he has also declared he will support Raila Amollo Odinga for president, this meeting is just pure witch hunt," he said when he appeared before the committee at the party headquarters in Pangani, Nairobi, on Monday, according to the Star.
Mwaura, who is also being accused of disrespecting the party by declaring it dead, termed himself a loyal member of the party who has been fully playing his role as a nominated lawmaker.
He alleged that he is being wrongfully targeted for being close to Deputy President William Ruto, the party deputy leader, by people who are opposed to Ruto and his political ambitions like Murathe.
"I am a paid up members of Jubilee Party. I pay Sh20,000 every month. I have never voted against any Jubilee party position. I have strongly defended the party position even when the party position is not clear to anyone," he added.
Murathe is not new to being linked to silent plots within the party, and is among those who have been linked to a secret scheme to eject Ruto from the bloc and also block his 2022 presidential candidature.
The former Gatanga MP is among the party officials Ruto has referred to as "conmen and busybodies" out to frustrate his stay in the President Uhuru Kenyatta-led once invincible side.
A section of Ruto's allies have questioned his loyalty to the party due to his open support for ODM leader Raila Odinga, whom he has stated will succeed Uhuru in 2022.
