Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria is a targeted man as the National Assembly resumes business after a two-month break on Wednesday.
Jubilee Party has vowed to 'punish' the legislator for his alleged disregard of the party’s rules and regulations.
National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale said Kuria will be removed from all House committees he serves courtesy of being a Jubilee member for rebelling openly against the party and disrespecting President Uhuru Kenyatta who is the party leader.
He referred to Kuria’s outburst on New Year's Eve where he publicly criticised the President for neglecting his backyard in terms of development.
"We will not allow our members who the party has invested in and who won their seats because of our party to demean the character and institution of the presidency," Duale said on Monday.
Kuria is set to be removed from the Transport committee where he serves as the vice chairperson and the Budget committee where he is member.
"One of the most cardinal rule in Jubilee is to maintain discipline within our members, party leadership and party constitution. On this, Kuria has gone out of order," the Majority Leader stated.
The Gatundu South legislator has said he is unbowed by the looming action against him but has insisted the right procedure must be followed to eject him.
"Bring it on! I serve in the committees at the pleasure of the party. If the party decides that my services in the committees are no longer required, I will oblige," Kuria told Duale in a post on his Facebook page.
