Recently appointed Jubilee deputy secretary-general, Joshua Kutuny has now said that disciplinary action awaits more than 20 MCAs elected and nominated under the party ticket who voted against the Constitution Amendment Bill 2020 popularly known as the BBI bill.
Kutuny said that the party had started receiving complaints against the MCAs from various parts of the country regarding their conduct during the BBI bill debates.
” We have received complaints about the conduct of the MCAs and we are in the process of serving them so that they explain why they acted against the party through which they got to where there are, ” Said Kutuny
Among those that have already written to the party is Elgeyo Marakwet County Governor, Alex Tolgos who wrote to the party disciplinary committee asking for action to be taken against MCAs from his county that defied the party position.
While speaking in Eldoret after welcoming the party’s Huruma ward MCA elect. Lucy Chomba, Kutuny said that he was going to ensure that order is restored in the Jubilee party by ensuring that members adhered to the party constitution.
” The party has its constitution and we have the disciplinary committee that will deal with the matter shortly, ” Said Kutuny.42 counties voted to pass the BBI bill with only three rejecting it. The three counties that rejected the bill include Baringo, Nandi, and Elgeyo Marakwet voted to reject the proposed amendment bill.
However, Baringo County’ s decision to vote no is in contention after a section of MCAs moved to court to challenge the results. The MCAs argued that the document was subjected to vote at the assembly before public participation was conducted.
The bill has already attained the required threshold of 24 counties and is now headed to the national assembly and the senate for debate before it is subjected to a referendum for the people to decide.
