A section of Ukambani politicians from Machakos County allied to Deputy President William Ruto have sworn to wipe out Wiper Party from the Ukambani region and it’s leader Stephen Kalonzo.
Led by Former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama who had hosted different leaders, aspirants, and Professionals at his home in Mua, Machakos County, he said that come 2022 he will have a party that will sponsor all candidates from the President to MCAs.
“Come 2022, I will have a party that will sponsor all candidates from the President to the MCAs. Let him(Kalonzo) go his way and I pursue mine and see who will win the 2022 elections,” said the former senator.
Former Masinga MP Itwiku Mbai echoed Muthama’s sentiments saying that Kalonzo had failed to establish a strong political leadership for the Ukambani region given that he terms himself as the de facto Ukambani Kingpin.
” As a community, we need a new wave into leadership because it is useless for people to profess love for Kalonzo when he himself cannot offer desired leadership to the community, ” he said.
Chama cha Uzalendo Organising Secretary Davies Musau went ahead and proposed for the formation of a political command center to remove the wiper Party from its dominance in the region.
“The political command Centre will be expected to bring new life to Ukambani politics and liberation to our people from the fruitless loyalty to Wiper,” he said.
During the meeting, Muthama brought in Businessmen Mwaya Kitavi and Donald Mwendwa from Kathiani Subcounty to oust Wiper organizing secretary Robert Mbui who has been in the parliamentary position since 2013.
Sources close to the former Senator said he would be having similar meetings with aspirants from Makueni and Kitui county as he seeks to stamp his political authority in the entire region.
For Matungulu, Subcounty Thomas Musau vowed to oust Stephen Mule who is a staunch supporter of the former vice president while in Yatta the KNUT leader Kasimba Ngui was ready to take over from Charles Kilonzo.
Former Machakos Deputy Governor Bernard Kiala, Machakos Town MP Victor Munyaka, Mwala MP Vincent Musyoka, and Kitui East MP Nimrod Mbai were also present in the meeting.
