Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga appears to be calm despite talk that she will be axed for snubbing a meeting called by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Taking to her social media pages, Omanga wrote, “All is well,” as she awaits her fate.

Others who will face disciplinary action include Falhada Dekow, Waqo, Naomi Jillo, Prengei Victor and Mary Yiane.

They are accused of gross misconduct and gross insubordination by snubbing a meeting chaired by President Kenyatta who is also the Jubilee Party leader.

The senators are also accused of: Disloyalty to the partyAdvancing positions contrary to the partyRefusing to carry out party directivesDemonstrating lack of respect to the party and its organs

It is at this meeting that the party resolved to replace Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and Susan Kihika with Senator Samuel Poghisio (Majority Leader) and Senator Irungu Kang’ata.

On Tuesday Murkomen revealed that he talked to Deputy President William Ruto hours after his ouster and the DP had some words of encouragement.

Speaking during an interview on Citizen TV, Murkomen stated that DP Ruto told him all great people must go through fire and challenges will make him better.

“I spoke to the Deputy President today and these are his own words, every great person must go through fire and he gave me a list of the things they went through with the President

“He reminded me that he and the President (Uhuru) were taken to the Hague and reminded me the time we went around praying for them to be released from the Hague,” stated Murkomen.

Adding: “He said that this is a small problem for me compared to the monumental one him and the President faced in ICC and the same time elections…”

Further, Murkomen maintained that as per the law he is still the majority leader.
