A number of Jubilee MPs have offered their seats in House Committees to their CORD counterparts who were de-whipped by their parties for allegedly rebelling against their leaders.

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and Nominated MP Johnson Sakaja have written to the Majority Chief Whip offering to relinquish their positions in the Energy and ICT Committee and Finance Committee respectively.

Kuria stepped down from the position in the Energy Committee for Kilifi North MP Gideon Mung’aro while Sakaja nominated Mwingi North MP John Munuve to the Finance Committee.

The move is seen as a plot to lure the ‘rebel’ MPs from CORD into the Jubilee as they move to strengthen the party in preparation of the 2017 elections.

The CORD MPs were de-whipped by their parties over association with Jubilee.

The MPs have, however, remained defiant saying their working relations with Jubilee is necessitated by the need for growth in their constituencies.
