The lawmakers are among nine ODM MPs who met President William Ruto at State House, Nairobi, last week.

They are facing disciplinary action and are expected to write to the party to show cause.

Last week, Migori Senator Eddy Oketch requested the deregistration and expulsion of the nine for violating ODM's constitution.

"Your public display, conduct, and general comportment not only violate Section 14A of the Political Parties Act, 2021 but also Article 11 of the party constitution and the party's Code of Conduct that you signed," wrote ODM National Chairperson John Mbadi in a letter to the MPs.
