The party had vowed to take disciplinary actions against legislators who refuse to toe the line.
Five of the rebel senators were last year summoned for snubbing a Parliamentary Group meeting convened by the President Uhuru Kenyatta who is the party leader.
Senator Isaac Mwaura who appeared before the party disciplinary Committee last Monday was the latest MP allied to Deputy President William Ruto to find himself in trouble.
The defiant senators are at liberty to lodge an appeal.
“The expulsions are with immediate effect and have been communicated to the Senate and the Registrar of Political Parties. The affected Senators are at liberty to exercise their right of appeal” added the statement.
It remains to be seen whether the Registrar will approve the dismissals. If approved the senators lose their seats.
