A section of West Pokot residents took to the streets to demonstrate the sacking of four KANU nominated female MCAs by the party over indiscipline.
The party accuses the MCAs of failing to adhere to the party’s constitution as well as failing to remit the mandatory Ksh 5000 monthly remittance to the party.
The residents now claim the expulsion of the MCAs is an attempt to sabotage West Pokot Governor Prof John Lonyangapuo who has in recent times fallen out with KANU chairman, Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.
The residents who called for the immediate reinstatement of the MCAs saying it is unfortunate for the Secretary General Nick Salat to expel the nominees without following the due process.
The demonstrators have now accused a section of West Pokot leaders opposed to the Governor for planning the sackings to intimidate his leadership.
The residents voiced their support for the area Governor and warned those trying to frustrate his leadership that they will not be tolerated.
They said it was unfortunate to target female leaders in an era where the Country is pushing for gender equality.
The four MCAs Grace Rengei, Jackline Ripoo, Nancy Chombir and Josephine Cheprum received their expulsion letters last week from KANU secretary general Nick Salat who accuses them of failure to defend and promote the party’s position while serving at the West Pokot County Assembly.
