Tuju said that the disciplinary committee is also investigating chaos other cases reported at the Muranga Teachers Training college among other cases during the selection exrcice last week.

He also mentioned that the party headquarters will tomorrow embark on verification of the list of names of individuals selected to seat in the County Election Board before forwarding them to the party’s National Electoral board.
