Ledama noted that Kega consistently backed Raila Odinga's Azimio coalition in a statement on Thursday.
"We must look after @kaninikega1 He was firm with Azimio and is now suffering the consequences. My brother from Mount Kenya might have a smoother landing with EALA "Tweeted he.
Kega was one among the political figures that vociferously and openly backed Raila for the presidency.
However, he was unsuccessful in retaining the parliamentary seat he was running for against Njoroge Wainaina of the dominant UDA party.
He was the only member of parliament who won reelection in Nyeri County in 2017 and held the position of Kieni MP for two terms.
Before the results were known, Kega admitted defeat and declared he was moving on to pursue new things in life.
Former Kamukunji MP Simon Mbugua, Tigania East MP Mpuru Aburi, Kipipiri MP Wanjiku Muhia, Florence Jematiah, and former Mandera North MP Aden Nooru Mohammed were all nominated by the Jubilee Party in 2017.
Kennedy Musyoka, former Wajir Woman Representative Fatuma Ibrahim Ali, former Balambala MP Abdikadir Aden, and Senator Oburu Oginga were all members of the defunct National Super Alliance (Nasa). Oginga is currently a senator for Siaya.
