SEE ALSO :Court okays ANC suspension of MCAIn a letter dated March 20, and signed by the party’s secretary general Barack Muluka, the nominated ward rep was suspended for 30 days. The letter has been copied to the County Assembly Speaker Morris Buluma and the County Public Service Board. Disruptive activities In the letter, ANC accuses Ms Okanya of disrupting party activities at the Assembly despite being warned. “It has since come to our attention that you have not refrained from your chosen path of misconduct contrary to Article 50 of the party’s constitution. Within the next 30 days you will be summoned to appear before the disciplinary committee and an appropriate action taken,” read the suspension letter.

But in a rejoinder, Okanya dismissed Muluka’s letter as malicious. “I have seen the letter circulating on social media and I have not been served. Why are they targeting me alone and yet my letter has signatures of fellow ward reps who approved the changes at the assembly affecting minority leadership?” said Okanya. Okanya said she would continue discharging her duties as a nominated ward rep since the suspension was from the party and not from the assembly.
