KANU Secretary General Nick Salat on Tuesday, September 8 announced that the party has resolved to expell Emua Dikirr MP Johanna Ng’eno.
Speaking to journalists, Salat said the MP caused shame to the party after publicly attacking President Uhuru Kenyatta and his wider family.

“His conduct has been unbecoming and in contravention of the leadership and Integrity Act. We are therefore parting ways and we are giving an opportunity to seek a fresh mandate from the people of Emurua Dikir from any other party,” Salat said.
Salat said as a party they expect the MP to resign voluntarily, adding that they are ready for a by election.
“He should never call himself a member of Kanu again. He has the option of resigning from Parliament failure to which we will go for our ticket,” he added.
The Secretary General also apologized to the people and the offices the MP demeaned.
“On behalf of the party, we apologize to the people and the offices he demeaned with his remarks. We are also ready to go back to the people of Emua Dikir and ask for forgiveness for having sponsored him,” Salat said.
The law states that once the expulsion is effected, the MP would lose his Parliamentary seat.
If his seat is declared vacant, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) would be required to conduct a by-election.
Ng’eno, however, has an option of mounting a legal challenge against his expulsion.
