Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has said that the Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader was misadvised to expel him from the party
According to Malala, the party failed to follow the due process of law in expelling, terming it the reason as to why the Registrar of Political Parties, Anne Nderitu revoked his expulsion.
He also reminded Mudavadi that ANC is not a personal property but a party for Kenyans from all walks of life.
According to the maverick Senator, the party could have consulted (ANC) could have consulted him before arriving at an illegal decision of expelling him from the party.
Malala who was addressing the press at his Milimani home today in Kakamega town, he welcomed the actions taken by the in revoking his expulsion from ANC saying that was a Solomonic ruling after she ( Ms Nderitu) ruled that the decision to expel the senator was inconsistent with the party constitution.
He also said that he campaigned for Imran Okoth during the Kibra Parliamentary by elections, which was the genesis of his troubles as per the wishes of the late Ken Okoth.
He said he does not regret his actions and that he will continue supporting his leadership.
Malala further said that he was being punished by ANC party for supporting the handshake team of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga.
“I will continue to champion the interests of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) until Uhuru and Raila will tell me to stop and no one will intimidate me for taking that stand,” said Malala.
Malala scoffed at the disciplinary committee that expelled him from party given that their decision was not ratified by the National Executive Council.
“Any disciplinary action should take 90 days but ANC took 300 days to discipline me, that clout disqualifies the decision made by the governing council,” said Malala.
