Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala expelled from ANC Party
The Governing Council of Amani National Congress (ANC) has approved the expulsion of Kakamega Senator, Cleophas Malala from the party
The party’s disciplinary committee had in November last year suspended and summoned Senator Malala to appear and respond to charges made against him during an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party rally, according to the report by Citizen Digital.
“The committee finds and holds that your utterances and activities at the political rally convened by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) at Kibra on October 27, 2019 prejudiced the integrity and reputation of the ANC party and its members and employees,” read resolution of the disciplinary committee.
The Senator failed to respond to the charges and refused to appear before the committee to defend himself, a move that has led to his expulsion from the party.
The party led by former Presidential candidate Musalia Mudavadi accused the first-time senator of being disloyal to the party and the party leader.
“The special meeting of the NGC hereby adopts and ratifies the resolution for internal disciplinary of the party and NEC expelling Hon Cleophas Malala from the party membership,” read part of the party’s resolution.
“After careful consideration of the penalties set out in Article 50.9 of the Constitution of Amani National Congress party the committee resolved to expel you from membership of ANC with effect from December 5, 2019.”
The embattled Senator has been chairing the 11-member Senate committee which is taking part in the investigation on Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru’s impeachment and will table the findings before a special sitting of the Senate on Friday 2.30 pm.
