Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party leader Isaac Ruto has described the Jubilee purge in the Senate and National Assembly leadership as a normal party disciplinary process.
Mr Ruto said President Uhuru Kenyatta did not break any law in kicking out lawmakers from House committees.
"A President cannot run a government with a Parliament that is not disciplined, a party with members who openly defy him to the extent of abusing him in public," Mr Ruto said yesterday.
Mr Poghisio, a cabinet minister in former President Mwai Kibaki's administration benefited from the purge as a result of his party chairman and Baringo Senator Gideon Moi leading Kanu into a post-poll coalition with Jubilee.
Jubilee will formalise a coalition deal with CCM after the party leadership approved the decision during a virtual meeting on Saturday.
