JUST IN: Fatuma Dullo Officially Removed as Minority Whip as Ledama Takes Up Role, Sifuna Takes This

Senator Fatuma Dullo has been removed from her position as the Minority Whip. This news was confirmed on Tuesday by Senate Minority Leader James Orengo, who announced that Senator Ledama Olekina would be taking up her place.

Senator Dullo, who hails from Isiolo County, had been serving as the Senate Minority Whip, however her decision to meet President William Ruto weeks ago alongside other Azimio rebel MPs prompted her ouster.

According to sources within the coalition, Senator Dullo's move to meet President William Ruto recently led to her removal from her position as the Minority Whip.

Senator Olekina, who represents Narok County, will now take up the role of the Minority Whip. He is known for his vocal opposition to the BBI and has been a strong proponent of devolution and the rights of minority communities.

In addition, Senator Edwin Sifuna has also been confirmed as the Deputy Minority Whip in the Senate. Senator Sifuna, who represents Nairobi County, is a lawyer and a member of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party.

The changes in the Senate leadership are expected to have significant implications on the political landscape, especially months after the General Elections.

It remains to be seen how the new leadership will navigate the challenges ahead and deliver on their promises to the people they represent.
