Borabu Member of Parliament (MP) Ben Momanyi has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta, also party leader Jubilee party, to extend his purge on disobedient house leaders and party members to the national assembly.

This comes days after the senate majority leader aND Elgeyo Marakwet County senator Kipchumba Murkomen was ousted and his lucrative post taken by KANU’s West Pokot senator Samuel Poghisio.

Speaking in his Borabu constituency over the weekend, the Wiper M.P termed the latest attack on the president from the Jubilee lawmakers and leaders as unfortunate and a mockery to the presidency.

Momanyi welcomed the changes at the Senate and asked the President to ‘visit’ the national assembly to chase out legislatures with key positions who have been undermining him.

“The president and party leader of the Jubilee party has given some people an opportunity to lead and they have turned against him. They are abusing the president and demeaning the seat.

Why can’t they resign so that they join the opposition side of the government?

I want to congratulate the president for stamping authority in the party and in the senate. He (President Uhuru) should consider coming to the national assembly and tame some of the leaders who have chose to bite the hands that fed them”, said Momanyi.

Momanyi on the other hand criticized DP Ruto for disrespecting the president by engineering his lieutenants to start 2022 early succession campaigns and demeaning presidency.

“If you (DP) want to be president of the republic of Kenya, wait for your time and you will be respected. We cannot afford a country where the presidency is humiliated by leaders aligned to you and abuse the President who is a simple of national unity, respect Uhuru Kenyatta so that you may be respected if your time comes”, added Momanyi.

The changes were effected after President Kenyatta called for a senate parliamentary group (PG) meeting at state house early last week.

The M.P was speaking in Borabu TTI where he distributed over 10,000 masks made by the Borabu TTI and 3,000 donated by the government through the ministry of Interior and coordination of national government headed by Dr. Fred Matiang’i.
