Senate Majority Whip Irungu Kang'ata reveals that some Jubilee party members are planning to kick him following his letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta that leaked to the media.


Speaking at Inooro TV, he said the Jubilee party has pledged to revenge by peeling off his powers at the Senate.


The Murang'a Senator miseries came after details of his Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) letter to President Uhuru appeared.

His Jubilee counterparts from the Kieleweke faction have come out in groups and in-person to rebuke him.

"I heard they want to take my Senate leadership position immediately after the BBI referendum. Already they have removed me from the BBI campaigns leadership in Mt.Kenya region," said Kang'ata.


The lawmaker, however, stated that the status of the BBI in the Mt.Kenya region was as he had highlighted and that his letter was in good faith.


Penitent for the feedback that his letter attracted, the lawmaker said that he greatly lamented that it leaked to the public.

He revealed that he had even received threats that he forwarded to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations(DCI).


The lawmaker said he did not leak the letter to the media and he believes one of the letter recipients did so. Other intended recipients were Senate Majority Leader Samuel Poghisio and the National Executive Committee of Jubilee Party.


He had addressed the letter to the President through the Jubilee party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju.


The senator said the President and his handshake partner Raila Odinga are surrounded by people who are not telling them the truth about the uptake of the BBI in Mt.kenya region.


As early as Saturday, Kang'ata began experiencing sanctions from his BBI colleagues in Mt.Kenya.

 In a meeting held at Thika Greens Golf Resort in Murang'a county on Saturday, Kang'ata was substituted with his Kirinyaga counterpart Charles Kibiru to manage the BBI campaigns in the Mt.Kenya region.

He was even not invited to the meeting.
