The trio was named by the Speaker Justin Muturi for gross disorderly conduct during the passing of the controversial Security Laws [Amendment] Bill, 2014 at a special sitting last December.
Muturi invoked standing orders 108 in naming the three after considering a motion on the same moved by Ainamoi MP Benjamin Langat.
The three MPs were suspended after the legislators allied to the Jubilee Coalition used their numerical strength to vote for the motion.
They polled 101 votes against the opposition’s 52 while two abstained.
Meanwhile, a motion to suspend Jubilee MPs Moses Kuria Joseph Kiuna, Muthomi Njuki, Onesmus Ngunjiri, Elijah Langat, and Alice Nganga who were named by the Speaker for gross disorderly conduct was defeated.
The Jubilee allied MPs defeated the motion by Seme MP Dr James Nyikal 69 against 63.
The six were named for similar crimes to the three MPs.
