Over 30 Jubilee Party Members of Parliament drawn from the National Assembly and the Senate who held a meeting with President William Ruto on Wednesday will be punished.
The Jubilee party Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni has said the former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s party has already kicked off action against the rebel members.
Kioni who spoke to one of the leading online news outlets said disciplinary steps were already being taken and that, eventually, the MPs would be called to answer charges levelled against them.
The former Ndaragua MP further noted that the lawmakers who attended the State House meeting have never attended Azimio rallies.
According to Kioni, the head of state wants to kill any contrary opinion and ensure that there is no voice to speak against the ills of his illegitimate government.
Kioni alleged that Ruto’s focus is on hiking taxes, selling public facilities like government parastatals and passing policies without any opposition.
Speaking during the meeting, President Ruto said his government was ready to work with anyone despite the political divide.
Ruto told the MPs that they were a family as they all were elected by Kenyans.
The notable politicians who met the president included Nominated MPs Sabina Chege, Margaret Kamar, MPs Yusuf Hassan (Kamukunji) and Adan Keynan (Eldas).
The meeting comes hours after the head of state met a section of Raila Odinga’s ODM MPs on Tuesday.
Among them were Phelix Odiwour – Jalang’o – (Lang’ata), Mark Nyamita (Uriri), Tom Ojienda (Kisumu), Shakeel Shabir (Independent – Kisumu Town East) and Caroli Omondi (Suba South), Elisha Odhiambo (Gem), Gideon Ochanda (Bondo).
The head of state has been on a charm offensive on the opposition side if the series of meetings with members of the Azimio coalition is anything to go by.
During his meeting with the nine ODM MPs from the Nyanza region, Ruto affirmed that the aim is to foster unity among the leaders to solve the challenges facing Kenyans.
