Nairobi - Three MPs from Ford Kenya who recently defected to Jubilee risk losing their positions, after the party leaders resolved to hold by-elections in their regions.

Turkana Senator John Munyes, MPs Khatib Mwashetani (Lunga Lunga) and Nichola Ngikor over the weekend publicly declared their defection to Jubilee party during the launch in Kasarani.

Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula, who is also the Ford Kenya party boss on Thursday led members at a special management meeting at the party headquarters in Nairobi, where the resolution was reached.

“Any leader of the party who has announced their defection to the Jubilee party will be subjected to by-elections in their respective areas of representation,” said Wetang’ula.

The senate Minority leader added that as the countdown to the general election begins, the party’s election board will be reconstituted within 21 days.

“Party members should focus on the next election and encourage teamwork,” the Senator, who is also the CORD Co-principal told journalists.

Present at the meeting were Governor Patrick Khaemba, Senators Bonni Khalwale (Kakamega), Henry Ole Ndiema (Trans-Nzoia) and Catherine Mukite (nominated).

Others were MPs Eseli Simiyu (Tongaren), Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini) and James Mukwe (Kabuchai).
