Hon. Munyoki Mwinzi and Hon. Daniel Ngoima Kimanzi on Tuesday 26th March 2024, assumed office as the new Majority Leader and Majority Party Whip of the House respectively. The two replaced Hon. Harrison Maluki Mawia and Hon. Bonface Mukwate Katula who served as Majority Leader and Majority Party Whip formerly.

In his communication during yesterday’s afternoon sitting, the Speaker Hon. Kevin Kinengo Katisya conveyed to the Honourable House the court’s ruling that the Leader of Majority Party and the Majority Party Whip are Hon. Munyoki Mwinzi and Hon. Daniel Kimanzi Ngoima respectively.

This comes after there has been ongoing legal proceedings as relates to the leadership of the Majority Party. The Speaker in his remarks congratulated the two on assuming their new roles while assuring them of his support as they transition into their new leadership positions. He also urged all members of the County Assembly to extend their full support and cooperation to them as they resume their duties in their leadership capacity.

The Speaker also appreciated the outgoing Majority Leader Hon. Harrison Maluki Mawia and the outgoing Majority Party Whip Hon. Bonface Mukwate Katula for their dedicated service and leadership. “Your commitment, diligent efforts and your contributions will be remembered with gratitude” reiterated Speaker Kinengo.

Kitui county assembly speaker Kevin Katisya had rejected attempts to change the house leadership, saying the process was not procedurally done.

MCAs had been locked in bitter fights to change the house leaders but Katisya said the attempts were null and void because the communication was made to his office in the wrong manner.
