The political differences between Deputy President William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga have once again spilled onto the floor of the Senate, threatening the leadership of two committees.
At the centre of the battle between the two protagonists is the chairmanship of the County Public Accounts and Investments Committee (CPAIC) and the Delegated Legislation.
The differences have already seen Narok Senator Ledama ole Kina (ODM) dewhipped from the CPAIC.
Mr Kina contested and won the election on Monday against his party’s preferred candidate Kisii Senator Sam Ongeri.
He had already chaired the CPAIC’s first meeting when Senate minority leader James Orengo (ODM) gave a notice indicating the party’s wish to dewhip him from the CPAIC and the Senate Business Committee (SBC).
“I hereby give a notice of the discharge and removal of Senator Ledama Ole Kina from the CPAIC and SBC,” Mr Orengo said in the notice to Speaker Kenneth Lusaka dated May 7.
