Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has been expelled from the Amani National Congress following a special National Delegates meeting held on Friday morning.
The party led by former Presidential candidate Musalia Mudavadi accused the first-time senator of being disloyal to the party and the party leader.
The party said it had followed the due process including inviting the Senator to appear before the disciplinary committee of the party which he declined.
“The special meeting of the NGC hereby adopts and ratifies the resolution for internal disciplinary of the party and NEC expelling Hon Cleophas Malala from the party membership,” read part of the party’s resolution.
The disciplinary committee had recommended expulsion of Malala from the party.
“The committee finds and holds that your utterances and activities at the political rally convened by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) at Kibra on October 27, 2019 prejudiced the integrity and reputation of the ANC party and its members and employees,” read resolution of the disciplinary committee.
“After careful consideration of the penalties set out in Article 50.9 of the Constitution of Amani National Congress party the committee resolved to expel you from membership of ANC with effect from December 5, 2019.”
NGC unanimously adopted the disciplinary committee’s resolutions.
Contacted, Malala laughed off the matter saying he will issue a comprehensive statement later responding to the matter..
“I have a great matter before me. I will address that issue later,” he said.
