The parliamentarians who were led by Balambala MP Omar Shurie, Eldas MP Adan Keynan, Isiolo Senator Fatuma Dullo, and nominated MP Sabina Chege said it is time to put political differences aside and work for the people.
They said their party has a close relationship with the President, and all they have done is “to come back home”.
While praising the legislator for returning back home, Kenya’s President William Ruto said it was inevitable for leaders to work together, noting that “the people who elected you are the same people who elected us”.
“You have a right to make choices as Kenya is a democratic country. You are now our members and we will treat you as such,” the President said.
Ruto noted that Parliament is a critical platform for enacting laws on the Government’s agenda.
“We will be seeking your support on Bills and regulations on the Housing Fund, Water Purchasing Agreements, among others,” he pointed out.
The move by a section of Jubilee lawmakers to meet the president comes just a day after a section of ODM MPs met the First in Command at the State House.
However, the move by Jubilee MPs appears to have not settled well with the party’s top brass.
Rtd. President Uhuru Kenyatta’s party has revealed that the political outfit will take action against the 30 lawmakers who met the Head of State despite being warned not to.
“I am not in support of the meeting. Attempts to get my opinion on the matter were denied by the members. Disciplinary measures have commenced against the members as we speak,” said Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni.
