Isaac Mwaura makes senate comeback after court ruling
Mwaura had lost his seat as a nominated senator after the ruling party expunged his name from the party membership list.
However, Mwaura moved to the High Court where he secured a favorable ruling.
“The High Court having quashed Gazette notice number 4597 by the Speaker of the Senate that declared a vacancy of a member elected through a party list, thereby removing senator (Dr) Isaac Mwaura as a senator,” Lusaka said.
Mwaura was escorted to the chamber by Deputy President William Ruto’s allies.
They were Naomi Waqo (nominated), Falhada Iman (nominated), and Christopher Langat (Bomet).
The tribunal, he said, made a mistake when it held that the party was justified to discipline Mwaura.
The court subsequently set aside the decision of the Tribunal and substituted it with an order allowing Mwaura’s complaint.
The National Disciplinary Committee after hearing the parties resolved to have Mwaura suspended for six months from the party’s membership.
Ngirici opens up on her deteriorating relationship with Ruto
The entry of Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru into the United Democratic Alliance(UDA) has created a rift between the party and Kirinyaga Women Rep Purity Ngirici.
Thursday, November 25, Ngirici expressed regret for funding UDA to the tune of millions.
Kirinyaga Women Rep Purity Ngirici regrets that despite all the sacrifices, the party seemed to support her rival Governor Waiguru.
“I don’t even want to remember how much I have used to build the UDA party in Kirinyaga from scratch, but I’m young in politics and still learning,” Ngirici stated.
Waiguru’s defection to the UDA party, in Ngirici’s opinion, has ‘opened her eyes.’
“I popularised UDA Party in Kirinyaga County. I convinced my people that UDA was the political outfit to join, and that Ruto was the man best-suited to take over from [President] Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
I also made them see the gaps in BBI, which was being championed by the President’s team,” she said.
“During that time, Waiguru was on the other side opposing Ruto, claiming that the DP had rented members of the Kikuyu community.
She was also at the forefront popularising BBI across Kenya,” said Ngirici.
She expressed confidence that her supporters will follow her, regardless of the party she will be vying on.

Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, the ODM’s Deputy Party Leader, had previously indicated that he would not attend the meeting, citing Ruto and Raila’s animosity.
