President Uhuru Kenyatta last year orchestrated a series of purges at deputy president William Ruto’s allies both in the senate and the national assembly. Senate majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen and Majority Whip Susan Kihika were the first casualties. They were replaced by Samuel Poghisio and Irungu Kang’ata respectively. Senate deputy speaker Kithure Kindiki became the third casualty.

The purge then headed to the national assembly where majority leader Aden Duale was axed and replaced by Kipipiri MP Amos Kimunya. MPs Ben Washiali and his Cecily Mbarire were as well dethroned from Majority Chief Whip and Deputy Chief Whip respectively. The two were replaced by Navakholo MP Emmanuel Wangwe and Igembe North MP Maoka Maore respectively.

Six months down the line, details have emerged of a plot to ouster a top government official. This is according to the Tuesday Standard. The daily reports that MPs are plotting to send the National Assembly Majority Leader Amos Kimunya packing just months after he replaced Garissa Township MP Adan Duale. Kimunya is accused of secretly pushing Ruto’s agenda in parliament.

Kimunya’s tenure as the majority leader in the national assembly started hitting major hurdles right from the first day of him taking office. His first assignment was to allocate members into various committees in which he was accused of working for DP Ruto after he allocated dewhipped Ruto allies plum house committee jobs.

ODM Members of Parliament threatened to pull out of the handshake if Kimunya’s list was to take effect. It took the intervention of President Uhuru Kenyatta who is reported to have given Kimunya a dress down before the matter was solved.

Kimunya was also accused of secretly working for Ruto during the BBI 2 at Bomas of Kenya following reports that he had denied top Raila Odinga’s allies like governor Joho a chance to speak. Kimunya and some statehouse officials are also said to have changed the program so that Ruto speaks after Raila yet the initial program was that Raila would speak after Ruto by virtue of being a BBI co-principal. This gave Ruto a chance to counter Raila’s speech and steal the show at Bomas 2.
