The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) disciplinary committee wants Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa and her Msambweni counterpart Suleiman Dori expelled.
ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna said the committee in a report had recommended the expulsion of the two legislators for gross misconduct.
Sifuna in a statement following the recommendation on Tuesday during a meeting at Park Place Hotel in Nairobi said party rules should be followed by all members at all time.
Jumwa and Dori had been summoned early October to appear before the disciplinary committee over their persistent public utterances against the ODM Party and its leader but failed to honour the summons.
The two had publicly confessed their support to Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid.
“Party members must at all times adhere to rules, regulations, and policies of their respective parties. Party discipline is paramount. Respect for party leadership, its organs, and decisions made are components that make a stronger political party.”
“The Political Parties Act is clear on the running and management of political parties, which includes discipline among party members,” said Sifuna.
The disciplinary committee has also recommended the expulsion of six members of the Homa Bay County Assembly and one from Busia for their violent and unruly behavior.
The ODM Secretary General, however, said the members recommended for expulsion will be summoned by the party's National Executive Council (NEC) before a final decision regarding their expulsion is made.
“The party's National Executive Council has adopted the report. The NEC shall invite the members recommended for expulsion to appear before it at a special meeting to be held early next year,” added Sifuna.
