Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula says the removal of Cleophas Malala from the position of Deputy Minority Leader in the Senate was against the NASA Coalition Agreement, and was vindictive. Wetangula, who is also the Ford Kenya Party Leader said the move has a direct link to the outcome of the Matungu byelection.
”I condemn the removal of Sen Cleo Malala as Senate D/Minority leader. It is selfish, unhelpful, unlawful, vindictive, intolerant, vengeful and against the NASA coalition Agreement. It has a direct link to the outcome of the Matungu byelection. Bure kabisa!!” the Senator tweeted on Wednesday.
Malala was removed as the Deputy Minority Leader by NASA senators and replaced by Kilifi Senator Steward Madzayo.
The NASA Senators Parliamentary Group met this morning at Parliament to deliberate on Malala’s ouster. Malala was accused of alleged gross misconduct and mischief in the recently concluded Matungu parliamentary by-election.
