Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has been removed as Senate Deputy leader.
This is after the National Super Alliance (NASA) Senators Parliamentary Group, met this morning at Parliament to deliberate on Malala’s ouster.
Malala was accused of alleged misconduct and mischief in the recently concluded Matungu by-election.
A statement by ANC read, “The party has decided to expel Senator Malala after deliberations with the National Governing Council. The senator has been prejudicing the activities of the party and has been disloyal.”
He has been replaced by Kilifi Senator Steward Madzayo. Madzayo’s name will be tabled before Senate this afternoon, so as to inform Speaker Kenneth Lusaka of the change of guard.
Addressing the press from Parliament buildings, Senate Minority Leader James Orengo said they will issue a detailed report by the end of today.
Regarding the 2020 constitution amendment bill, Orengo said NASA fully supports the Building Bridges Initiative Bill.
He also said, the senators addressed a number of issues arising from the document in both the parliament and senate.
