Kang’ata removed as Senate Majority Whip
Tuesday, February 9th, 2021
Muranga Senator Irungu Kang’ata has been removed as Senate Majority Whip. Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju has announced.
He is replaced by Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi.
Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju said Kang'ata was relieved of his duties after he chose to address President Uhuru Kenyatta in a wrong manner last month.
Tuju further said Kang'ata made public matters that they discussed in closed-door meetings.
He added that Kang'ata was later invited to a meeting and asked to apologise, but he refused.
"We had a meeting where we invited Senator Kang’ata, but he refused to come. He joined online and later discussed what was discussed to the media. If after talking, you expose what was discussed, then that is not acceptable and that is a big failure as a leader," Tuju said.
