Jubilee Party has kicked out Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata as the Senate Majority Chief Whip.

According to Secretary-General Raphael Tuju, the party had an issue with the manner in which Kang’ata expressed himself to the president.

He added that Kang’ata was later invited to a meeting and asked to apologize but he declined.

“We had a meeting where we invited Senator Kang’ata but he refused to come. He joined online and later discussed what was discussed with 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.

He also said that Kang’ata made public matters that they discussed in closed-door meetings as well as failed to attend parliamentary leadership meetings.

Kang’ata has been replaced by Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi.
