Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto has warned Jubilee MP's that he will kick them out of the party himself if they dissent on party agreements.
Ruto was refering to the new agreement by the party to curb party hopping after nominations.
" If you disagree with this then I will kick you out of Jubilee myself," he told MP's in Nairobi.
The new law curbing party hopping is already in Parliament and has been backed by both CORD and Jubilee leaders who would have had a headache come nomination time early next year.
The new law will not allow any person who avails himm or herself for nomation through one party to jum to another if he or she loses the nomination process.
That has brought out alot of questions from MPs who say that some of them have not quit their parties in the past out of malice but by right.
" The new law is good because it ensures that leaders move to parties where they feel best at and not just for the sake of being seen," Meru Senator Kiraitu Murungi told News24.
CORD leader Raila Odinga who has suffered in the past from party hopping MPs is also in support of the bill.
