Nairobi - Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale will not be expelled from the United Democratic Forum UDF for now, the registrar of political parties has said.
Khalwale and two other senior UDF officials Nominated senator Martha Wangari and executive chairman Hassan Osman had been expelled from the party Monday for perceived gross misconduct.
The three however have been saved by the registrar Lucy Mbugua who has put their suspensions on hold pending the hearing of a suit by three UDF officials who are against their expulsion.
" Hereby note that the suspensions have been put on hold pending the hearing of the aforementioned suit, registrar Lucy Mbugua said Tuesday.

Mbugua had earlier also said that Khalwale and other risk expulsion and fresh elections if their respective parties submit the resolutions from their respective disciplinary committees.
Khalwale and the rest have been accused by party leader Musalia Mudavadi of not representing the interests of their party.
They have also been accused of flirting with other parties and told to seek mandate elsewhere.
Khalwale has since denied that he is a part of the CORD coalition.
" We do not have a specific stand in the house (Senate) and so we have all decided to work with the CORD coalition, he said Monday of his expulsion from UDF.
The current UDF leadership have also been banned from discussing the fate of the expelled leaders until their suit is heard and determined.
