Sirisia MP John Waluke was dealt a major blow after he was replaced as a member of the Public Service Commission.
National Assembly minority leader Opiyo Wandayi excluded Waluke’s name from the list of nominees from the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party to serve on the committee.
In a quick turn of events, the legislature’s position was awarded to Isiolo senator and minority whip leader Fatuma Dullo.
Waluke, who is currently in jail and fighting to be released on bail, looked into the situation and claimed that his party, Jubilee, promised to reward him.
