In the changes announced by Uhuru at State House Nairobi, National Assembly Majority Whip Benjamin Washiali and his deputy nominated MP Cecily Mbarire were kicked out.
Navakholo MP Emmanuel Wangwe replaces Washiali while Igembe North MP Maoka Maore replaces Mbarire.
The changes are expected to be communicated to the Speaker today.
The PG which was chaired by Uhuru at State House also resolved to effect further changes at the House committees as part of the ongoing purge to kick out all MPs not supporting President’s agenda.
While the looming purge had seen Washiali accept his fate, whether Duale would be spared had been the subject of debate due to his stature and track record in the house despite his affiliation with the Deputy President.
It remains to be seen whether Chairs of various committees such as Budget and Appropriations Committee Chair Kimani Ichung’wah, a vocal supporter of the DP, will be the next victims in the continued re-arrangement.
The President made no secret of his intention to ensure leaders in key positions are on the same page as him, acknowledging in an interview that he had little time left to cement a legacy before the end of his term in 2022.
