Three lawmakers allied to the Amani National Congress (ANC) are off the hook after the party backtracked on its promise to initiate disciplinary proceedings against them.
Following a meeting on Tuesday, the ANC National Executive Council (NEC) decided not to constitute a disciplinary committee to question Senators George Khaniri (Vihiga), Cleophas Malala (Kakamega) and Nominated MP George Otsotsi.
The trio questioned why Mudavadi missed the event and were accused of pushing the interests of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), a National Super Alliance (NASA) affiliate party.
ANC's decision to let the vocal lawmakers walk free was reportedly informed by fears of a backlash from supporters if they punished them for their remarks.

Mudavadi stated that indiscipline would not be tolerated in the party going forward, especially with a planned bid for the Presidency in 2022.
He explained that it was necessary to have a united front as this would also improve relations with other NASA-affiliate parties.
Malala and Osotsi had vowed not to appear before the disciplinary committee as they had earlier been directed.
They further accused ANC Chairman Ayub Savula of being a Jubilee Party mole.
It has since emerged that a meeting organized by COTU Secretary-General Francis Atwoli in Khwisero on Sunday resolved that they should avoid internal wrangles that could be detrimental to the party in the long-run.
