'Go back to ODM', Muturi tells sacked MPs

20 November 2014, 14:09 William Korir

Nairobi - Orange Democratic Movement ODM MPs sacked from parliamentary committees have been denied the right to appeal by speaker Justin Muturi.

The Mps, and a woman representative have been sacked by the party from committees for apparent insubordination and lacking appropriate ideals.

The MPs, Kisumu Central's Ken Obura who was a member of the Defence and Foreign Relations and Labour and Social Welfare committees, Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama who was in the Public Accounts Committee and Committee on the Implementation of Constitution, Dalmas Otieno who was in the Constitution Implementation and Administration and National Security committees and Kwale Women's representative Zainab Chidzuga who was in Environment and Delegated committees were all officially removed from their posts Wednesday.

This follows a decision by ODM to rid rebel MPs of key positions in the party.

However, the four, having been removed, decided to appeal the decision, with Arama especially angered by the move, but Muturi rebuffed their efforts.

According to Muturi, the decision on whether to re-instate them lies with the party.

" The decision is no longer with the house but the party. I executed an order that was sent by the the official party organ and so you must go back and appeal at party level, Muturi said.

This followed an inquest by Arama and majority leader Aden Duale over the move.

The four will now miss out on a KES 5,000 sitting allowance for the respective committees and essentially put them in the party firing line.

They are accused of not following party orders and siding with the ruling Jubilee coalition.
