Kericho MCAs got into disputes about House leadership on Friday, which resulted in fighting and chair hurling.
The Kericho MCAs have received criticism from President William Ruto, who said their actions were a disgrace to the county.
He chastised them, telling them to put aside their small-minded politics and begin serving the people of Kericho who had chosen them.
Following the turmoil that rocked the House on Friday, Kericho County Assembly Speaker Patrick Mutai has been called to appear before the UDA Disciplinary Committee.
Mutai was told to appear before the panel on January 20 by committee chair Charles Njenga in a letter dated January 13."Accordingly, and pursuant to the provisions of Article 29(iv)(v)(vi) and (vii) of the Constitution of UDA, you are hereby summoned to appear before the Disciplinary Committee on the 20th of January 2023 at 9am at the Hustler Plaza,4th Floor, Board Room for the hearing of the complaint against you," Njenga said.
Njenga said the drama witnessed at the House has compromised the party's reputation.
He faulted Mutai for holding the special meeting and failing to give the party members directions concerning the leadership, leading to the chaos.
If the complaint against Mutai is established, Njenga said, he will be disciplined in accordance the party Constitution.
