The Wiper Democratic Movement party has pledged to take disciplinary action against its Members of Parliament who supported the controversial Finance Bill 2024.

In a concise statement, the party indicated that it had instructed its legislators to vote against the contentious bill. MPs who defied this directive would now face consequences.

The party emphasized its commitment to this stance, stressing that no exceptions would be made once the disciplinary process commences.

Notably, among those identified for disciplinary action is Dadaab MP Farah Maalim, who recently voted in favour of the Finance Bill, contravening the party's directive.

According to Wiper, the party members who voted in favour of the bill betrayed Kenyans and that it would not relent on taking stern measures against them.

"All our MPs were instructed to reject the Finance Bill 2024 and that is on record. There were no exemptions," read part of a statement by Wiper Party.

"Choices have consequences not just for the two, but for all who betrayed Kenyans."

In a separate statement, Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka lauded Kenyan youths for taking to the streets to protest against the bill which he termed as unreasonable, unsound, and uncorrectable.

Kalonzo accused police officers of using force to intimidate protestors who were peacefully exercising their constitutional rights to picket and demonstrate.

"You have publicly expressed your displeasure with this dishonest and insensitive Kenya Kwisha regime, whose primary purpose appears to be embezzling your hard-earned money," Kalonzo stated.

"Every hour, my admiration and appreciation for Kenya's #GenZ grow by leaps and bounds," he added.

The Azimio principal also went ahead to commend the 115 members of parliament who voted against the bill.
