Former Makueni Governor Prof. Kivutha Kibwana last week bashed Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka concerning Azimio coalition leadership.
Kibwana said Kalonzo should not look forward to being in charge of the coalition since ODM leader Raila Odinga was not retiring soon. He also downplayed Kalonzo’s presidential bid and added that Kalonzo’s track record in Ukambani was wanting.
His words seem to have rubbed a section of Wiper leaders the wrong way and they came out to defend Kalonzo.
Dee Kivuva nominated Machakos MCA and the Wiper party co-ordinator said that Kibwana is in no position to lecture leaders concerning development.
Kivuva claimed Kibwana was the Governor of Makueni, for 10 years but has very little to show.
“He should see how Wiper Governor Mutula Kilonzo Jnr is working. During his tenure, he did not construct even a kilometer of road. All he did was hold meetings at Kwa Kathoka in the name of public participation,” said Kivuva.
The Wiper coordinator noted that Kibwana launching a scathing attack on Kalonzo was a show of disrespect because Kalonzo is the Kamba kingpin. Kivuva added that Kibwana is a political reject who should quit politics.
“He said he will retire from politics why can’t he keep his word and retire peacefully, that way we will respect, and even in future may seek his opinions about politics,” Kivuva went on.
“He says Kalonzo has no following, has he looked at the number of leaders elected on a Wiper ticket? If Kalonzo is not popular why does he have a massive following from the region,” he posed.
