As Jubilee Party continues with house cleaning of its members NASA Coalition has also followed closely with the latest casualties being the vocal Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa, who has been recalled as the representative to the Parliamentary Service Commission.

Jumwa will now be replaced by her Likoni Member of Parliament Mishi Mboko.

Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa has also faced the axe after being removed from the Minority Deputy Whip position and replaced by the Ford Kenya Secretary General Eseli Simiyu.

According to the Minority Whip Junet Mohammed, the changes have been approved unanimously by the parliamentary group with an attendance of 118 members out of 135 with a representation from all the parties under NASA coalition.

“Hon Aisha Jumwa has been de-whipped from member committee, member’s service committee and the parliamentary service committee,” said NASA’s Deputy Whip.

Sylvanus Osoro, South Mugirango MP has also been removed from the Agriculture livestock committee and the Parliamentary Implementation Committee.

Turkana Central MP Nakara John Lodepe will no longer serve in the Defense and Foreign relations committee, while Bungoma Woman Representative Wambilianga Catherine has been ejected from the Labour and Social Welfare Committee, Education and Research Committee and the committee on selection.

Others who have faced the axe are Nicholas Tindi, Mogaka Vincent, Katana Paul Kahindi and Mbadi Twalib

“These members have been de-whipped completely, they will not sit in any committee. They have to go through disciplinary action laid down by the coalition leadership and they will not be attending any committee meeting going forward. They are completely isolated they will not be associating with us as NASA Coalition, “said Mohammed.
