KANU supporters in West Pokot have accused Governor John Lonyangapuo of disrespecting the party leadership and asked him to resign immediately.
The supporters claim that Lonyangapuo is affiliated to the Tangatanga political outfit associated with Deputy President William Ruto and should therefore quit the party and seek fresh mandate from the people.
This comes after four nominated KANU MCAs from the West Pokot County Assembly; Grace Reng’ei, Jack line Ripoo, Nancy Chombir and Josephine Cheprum were expelled from the party for misconduct and failure to adhere to party guidelines and code of ethics.
The expulsion say supporters of Governor Lonyangapuo hold peaceful demonstrations in all major towns accusing KANU party leadership of dictatorship.
KANU nominated MCA Elijah Kasheusheu claims the Governor has no respect for the party leader Gideon Moi and Secretary General Nick Salat.
He has also accused Lonyangapuo of sponsoring and organizing the recent demonstrations against the party leadership.
He said West Pokot leaders will continue working with President Uhuru Kenyatta upto 2022 and support Gideon Moi thereafter.
Lonyangapuo has condemned the move to expel the MCAs saying the top party leadership is out to frustrate and sabotage the executive through the County assembly.
