A second Jubilee nominated senator facing expulsion for snubbing the party's parliamentary group meeting at State House in Nairobi early this week has pledged loyalty to President Uhuru Kenyatta saying she skipped the meeting due to "unavoidable circumstances."
In light of the recent political on goings, I would like to state that my loyalty lies with our Head of State and Party Leader, His Excellency President Uhuru M. Kenyatta,” she said Friday.
Ms Jillo was among the five nominated senators including — Millicent Omanga, Iman Falhada Dekow, Victor Prengei and Mary Yiane Seneta that Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju said the party had recommended to the disciplinary commitee for expulsion.
He said it was wrong for the senators to snub their party leader’s meeting and they must now be prepared to face the disciplinary committee.
On Friday, Mr Kang'ata confirmed response to the notice to show cause from Senator Jillo adding that he would forward it to the party's disciplinary committee "with my substantive comments which remain confidential for now."
