Park­lands MCA Kas­sam claims ma­jor­ity whip po­si­tion held by Mbe­ria of Karen

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nairobi -

City Hall may soon wit­ness an­other fight af­ter two MCAs claimed to be Cord chief whip. The ma­jor­ity whip is Karen MCA David Mbe­ria. How­ever, his Park­lands coun­ter­part Jaf­fer Kas­sam said the ODM top brass has ap­pointed him the ma­jor­ity whip. “I was ap­pointed by the party’s top or­gan to re­place Mbe­ria, who has not been toe­ing the party line. The changes are good for the growth of the party,” Kas­sam said. Reached for com­ment, ma­jor­ity leader Elias Otieno said he is not aware of Mbe­ria’s re­place­ment. He said Mbe­ria en­joyed the priv­i­lege of hav­ing an of­fice as ma­jor­ity whip, but he dis­re­spected the county as­sem­bly ser­vice board, which al­lo­cated him the of­fice. “The priv­i­lege of him hav­ing an of­fice was taken away and he was thrown out. How­ever, his rights were not taken away. I don’t know when the res­o­lu­tion to re­place him as ma­jor­ity whip was reached,” Otieno said.
