Marakwet East MP Bowen Kangogo has lost his position as vice chair of the National Assembly Environment and Natural Resources committee.

Kangongo was removed on Tuesday after 10 people voted against him.

He got only one supportive vote and will be replaced by Ijara MP Sophia Abdi.

NASA MPs were asked to skip today's meetings for four parliamentary committees as Jubilee Party seeks to oust rebels from leadership positions.

In a letter seen by The Star on Monday, minority whip Junet Mohamed directed the opposition

MPs to skip the meetings as they had exercised their mandates.

The Suna East MP wrote the letters to

all members of the Labour and Social Welfare, Agriculture, Environment, Parliamentary Broadcasting and Library

committees.

More on this:

The rebel MPs include Alfred Keter of Nandi Hills who has lost his post in the Labour committee.

Nominated MP David Ole Sankok moved the vote of no confidence motion against Keter, claiming that they did not take into consideration the requirement of regional balance.
