Laikipia: County Assembly Leader of Majority ousted
By James Munyeki | April 21st 2021
Laikipia County Assembly Majority Leader Peter Thomi has been removed from office.
According to a communication to members Wednesday, Speaker Patrick Waigwa announced that the Githiga ward MCA was replaced by his Igwamiti counterpart, Joseph Kiguru.
The Speaker was reacting to a letter from the Assembly’s Chief Whip Sharubo Kaparo.
In the new changes, Mr Kaparo also replaced the deputy party leader Mutahi Muritu (Tigithi ward) with Veronicah Ikunyua who is the Nanyuki town ward representative.
Sossian ward MCA Jacob Edom together with Thomi was also ejected from the County Public Service Board and replaced by Daniel Mugweru (Umande ward) and Catherine Kibue (nominated) respectively.
Contacted, Thomi termed the move as illegality.
“I have no problem with being removed but the party constitution must be followed. I was not given the reasons due to the removal neither were the people I represent,” he said.
