Khalwale and co. risk losing seats, says registrar

28 October 2014, 14:23 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Leaders expelled from their political parties for various reasons risk losing their elective seats, the registrar of political parties says.

There has recently been a number of leaders either expelled or reprimanded by their respective parties over flirtation with rival organizations.

The most high profile has been that of Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale who has been expelled from the Amani National Congress ANC.

And according to the registrar's office, there is a possibility that the said persons can actually lose their seats, if their parties choose to take the cases forward.

" Parties if they choose, could use Article 103 of the Constitution and Section 14 of the Political Parties Act to expel MPs, MCAs and party officials," the registrar Lucy Ndungu confirmed Tuesday.

" Once the party has completed its decision making and this office is notified, then there is the chance that leaders will lose their elective seats," she added.

Thus far, there is no indication yet that ANC will go down that route but it is apparently a possible outcome.

" It is being considered but at the moment it is in the initial stages," a source at the party that did not want to be named told News24.

Khalwale has thus far said that he is not perturbed by the move and has played down the expulsion.

" I am still in the party. What I do in the house is for national interests," he said of his alleged move to the CORD coalition.
