The Wiper Democratic Movement  has expelled Machakos Governor, Dr Alfred Mutua, and four Members of Parliament from the party for allegedly supporting other parties.

Mutua was expelled alongside MPs Regina Ndambuki, John Munuve, Kisoi Munyao and Richard Makenga by the party’s disciplinary committee that is led by advocate Harun Ndubi who noted that the rebels have actually decamped to other parties.

In a handed to the deputy chairman of the Wiper Party, Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jr, on Thursday, December 8, Bishop Robert Mutemi Mutua, a nominated MP, was the only member pardoned by the committee.

“Governor of Machakos County, Dr Alfred Mutua, the Disciplinary Committee finds that his conduct expressly and constructively amounts to publicly advocating for the formation of another political party and promoting the interest, ideology and policies of the Maendeleo Chap Chap – which is not a member of CORD coalition,” read part of the report in part.

Wiper indicated that the Disciplinary Committee recommend that the members be deemed to have resigned from the party in accordance with Section 14 (5) of the Political Parties Act.

Last month, Wiper formed a committee to dictate the disciplinary actions to be meted on legislators who defected to other parties.

Members of county assemblies who were apparently disloyal to the party were also summoned to appear before the committee.

Wiper National Executive Council is now expected to meet on Monday to deliberate on the report and if adopted, it will be tabled before the National Governing Council of the party and the National Executive Congress for adoption.
