Sam Ongeri is the new chairman of public accounts and investment committee after the political war between senator of Narok county Olekina Ledema and the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).
Senator Olekina Ledema was voted by majority from the jubilee party as the chairman which led to wrangles between him and the ODM party.
The senator was whipped from a committee that he was initially in by minority leader senator James Orengo on basis of going against ODM party norms and agreement. Senator Sam Ongeri was given the position of chairmanship in the County Public Accounts and Investment Committee.
The Narok senator accused the ODM party of sidelining marginalized communities in the house of leadership. The Senator threw in the towel and visited ODM leader Raila Odinga and surrendered the seat.
