The Jubilee party will call for delegates conference in Muranga to discuss the ‘conduct’ of MPs Alice Wahome (Kandara) and Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu) over their utterances which ‘disrespects and embarrasses’ party leader Uhuru Kenyatta.
Muranga Jubilee chair Simon Kamau Gikuru says Mr Nyoro’s remarks that Uhuru is a dictator and that they will oppose BBI is inconsequential while Ms Wahome’s utterances that the President is existential threat to economy are insults to the head of State.
Speaking at Golden Palm Hotel Kenol on Monday over the status of the local politics in Muranga, Mr Kamau said the two leaders have been going against the party that sponsored them to Parliament and that they must be disciplined.
He took exception with Mr Nyoro’s remarks that Mt Kenya region was not ready for the BBI that President Kenyatta was ruling in a dictatorial style and that it was hypocritical for Uhuru to use and dump his Deputy when ascended to power.
According to Mr Gikuru, the statements are demeaning and disrespectful to the conduct of the President and they must be summoned to show cause why a disciplinary action should not be taken against them.
“These leaders are defying the party position and we are soon calling the delegates to whip them,” he added.
Ms Wahome’s accusations rage from her remarks that President Uhuru is the existential threat to economy, to her sentiments against the President’s dress code when he inspected Kasarani stadium.
“Its unfair and uncouth for leaders who kept on using the President photos in their campaign material in order to attract votes to now sustain series of insults and barbaric statements directed to the President,” Mr Gikuru said.
He dared the rebels to resign from Jubilee and seek fresh mandate to represent the people.
On his part Makuyu MCA Stanley Maina told off Ms Wahome for her remarks that President Uhuru was dressed like a teenager when he inspected the ongoing construction of Kasarani stadium.
He said it was unfortunate that a leader of her caliber would use her time to spy on the dressing code of the head of State instead of thinking on how to improve the livelihoods of her constituents.
“A whole MP criticizing the President’s dressing is funny, let her understand that the President is happily married and has no time for her, she needs to be dewhipped for her remarks,” he said.
Ichagaki Ward MCA and Mt Kenya Jubilee caucus chair Charles Mwangi Ng’ang’a alias Ichagaki One described Ms Wahome and Mr Nyoro as intellectual fools who have nothing to offer to their electorates.
“We need discipline in our party and the two leaders must be made to respect the President if they can’t do it at their own will,” he said.
According to Amos Murigi (Kimorori) the two leaders’ remarks against the President do not represent Muranga and Mt Kenya people.
“We are behind the President and Rt Honourable Raila Amollo Odinga and that’s the position of Mt Kenya region,” said Mr Murigi.
