Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has this morning been expelled from the Amani National Congress (ANC). This follows a decision by the party’s governing council which met on 26th June 2020 at the offices in Lavington Nairobi.
According to the party, Senator Malala had continually disrespected the party leader Musalia Mudavadi choosing to instead recognise ODM leader Raila Odinga as his legitimate leader.
In the November 2019 Kibra by-elections, Senator Malala went against the party by campaigning openly for ODM’s Imran Okoth instead of the ANC candidate who emerged 3rd in the elections. He subsequently failed to honour party summons to discipline him on that matter.
Senator Malala is currently on the limelight as the Chair of the Senate Committee on the Impeachment of Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru.
