Wiper Democratic Movement has summoned high ranking party members who recently announced their defection to jubilee.
The Kalonzo Musyoka led outfit wants the errant members to appear before its disciplinary committee in a weeks’ time to show cause why they cannot be expunged from the party’s register.
The move by wiper comes as its ODM partner announced dates for its primaries calling on members of the public who might want to contest the 2017 general election on the party to apply before the end of the month.
Wiper Party has constituted a five member disciplinary committee to investigate seven members of parliament who are deemed to have decamped to Jubilee party.
The party’s National Executive Council- NEC- says that the committee will be chaired by lawyer Haron Ndubi.
Addressing the press at the Wiper party headquarters shortly after NEC meeting, the party’s Secretary General Hassan Omar said the disciplinary committee is required to summon the defectors and compile a comprehensive report by 14th November before forwarding its recommendations to the party’s National Governing Council.
Members of the county assemblies whose loyalty to the party has been put in question will have also been summoned.
Those summoned include, Mwingi Central MP Joe Mutambu, Mbooni MP Kisoi Munyao, Mwingi North MP John Munuve, and Regina Ndambuki of Kilome. Others are Kaiti MP Katemi Makenga and nominated MP Robert Mutemi. Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua who has formed his Maendeleo Chap Chap Party has also been summoned. This comes barely two days after Wiper’s associate in Cord, ODM, expelled 10 legislators who were found to have defected to Jubilee party or supporting other political parties.
