Osotsi in trouble as Mudavadi moves to kick him from Parliament
SEE ALSO :MP Godfrey Osotsi expelled from ANCThe decision to expel Osotsi is linked to an audit of the party’s funds during the last elections, which revealed that Sh56 million could not be accounted for. Osotsi and Nominated Senator Petronila Were, who were the party secretary general and executive director respectively, were implicated in the matter that has since become a subject of investigation by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). But Osotsi yesterday accused the party of engaging in political witch-hunt, stating that the audit query was yet to be concluded by the DCI. Disciplinary committee He further claimed that he was never given the opportunity to defend himself before the disciplinary committee. “I have not received the expulsion letter. The so-called disciplinary committee is a kangaroo thing. I will provide a comprehensive statement once they officially send the letter to me,” said Osotsi. He added: “I will not be intimidated by juvenile tactics. I am a firm leader.” In a letter to the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties, the party wants the process of removing Osotsi from the party’s membership list to start immediately. “…kindly accept this letter to serve as a formal request by ANC party, beseeching you to commence the requisite statutory procedures and attendant actions with respect to the said Godfrey Osotsi, as befits a nominated MP whose membership of the sponsoring party has been terminated,” it states. Ms Were is also in trouble as she is expected to appear before the party’s disciplinary committee next week Friday “to make certain clarifications over the matter”.
