Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura has been kicked out of Senate and his seat declared vacant.
This is following a decision by Jubilee Party to expel him after he was accused of campaigning for a candidate of a different political outfit.
Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka declared the seat previously occupied by Mwaura vacant in a gazette notice.
“It is notified for the information of the general public that pursuant to Article 103 (1) (e) (i) of the Constitution and section 37 of the Elections Act, the seat of the Member of the Senate elected under Article 98 (1) (d) of the Constitution and held by Hon.
