” We are not going to be merciful in matters party discipline. I want to make it clear that the party’s constitution must be adhered to.
In the past, we have been lenient to our members, some even using the party’s stationery without authority. We shall not allow such an abnormality. We will take disciplinary action without hesitation,” Tuju said.
While addressing the media along with party chairman Nelson Dzuya and Senate Majority Whip Irungu Kang’ata, Tuju retaliated that whatever action is taken follow due process.
