Jubilee Party has moved to de-whip Riruta MCA James Kiriba over his plan to have the deed of transfer agreement that saw City Hall cede four functions to the Nairobi Metropolitan Services revoked.
Jubilee on Thursday communicated their decision to have the ‘rebel’ MCA dismissed from all committees from going against the party’s stance on the matter.
This followed when Kiriba on Tuesday tabled a motion calling for creation of transitional oversight committee to instigate the reversal of the four transferred functions.
They included health, Planning, Transport, Public Works as well as utilities and ancillary services.
Kiriba argued that the the term of the NMS coming to an end in March 2022, the assembly needs to initiate the process of reversing the transferred functions in preparation of the end of deed of transfer.
In his proposals, the MCA said that the transnational committee should include the Leader of Majority, Leader of Minority, Majority Whip, Minority Whip and six chairpersons on behalf of the committees of the transferred functions.
The committee should also include three other members representing the youth, women, and persons living with disability from among the MCAs.
But in their response Jubilee through the Majority Whip Paul Kados saw Kiriba’s actions as an affront to the party psition.
Kados said Kiriba ignored advice from the party to avoid sponsoring a motion of such magnitude.
A letter released by the party revealed that they are contemplating a suitable action against Kiriba for going against the standing orders and the constitution of Jubilee with respect to sponsoring of party motions and the pursuit of such businesses.
