Kitutu Chache MP Richard Onyoka's name has been struck off from the party list of Ford-Kenya in the latest Kenya gazette notice.

Onyonka, who has since decamped to Raila's ODM party, has been replaced as the deputy party leader by Millicent Anyango Abudho.

Also struck off is Tongaren MP Eseli Simiyu, who until his dismissal was serving as the outfit's Secretary General. Simiyu's position will be taken over by Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa.

The purge also saw Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyiyi, who recently led a revolt that sought to dislodge Wetangula as the party leader, lose his position as Secretary of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries to Kwanza MP Ferdinand Wanyonyi.

Kisumu Town West MP Olago Aluoch is also among notable names that have been replaced.

The myriad changes come weeks after the political outfit held a National Delegates Conference at the Bomas of Kenya, Nairobi.
