The party wants Ms Wanga to be replaced by Borabu MP Benson Momanyi.

Nasa nominated Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa, Vihiga Senator George Khaniri and Ms Wanga to the commission.

Addressing journalists at Parliament buildings Tuesday, group spokesman Godfrey Osotsi accused Wiper “of rocking the coalition boat from within”.

“Wiper should state categorically if it walked out of Nasa without our knowledge. We also urge the Speaker not to act on any letter but instead refer the matter to the relevant structures of Nasa,” the ANC secretary general said.

He added that Wiper was allocated the deputy minority leader in the National Assembly and minority whip in the Senate and should be satisfied with the slots.
