“I beg to move that this House of Senate resolves that Senator Kindiki, be removed from the office of the Deputy Speaker of the Senate,” Kangata, current Senate Chief whip stated without divulging details, including grounds for Kindiki’s removal.

The newly installed Majority Whip will require at least 44 Senators to vote in support of Kindiki’s removal.
