A section of leaders from the Wiper party have dismissed threats by Ukambani Governors to quit Azimio.
Speaking after attending a funeral in Katulani, Nguu/Masumba ward Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior asked them to go to the coalition they wish noting that their move won’t affect Azimio in any way.
“When we wanted to join Azimio, they said bad things about our party leader. When we joined, they now want to leave. If they had a good motive for the community to be in Government. Let them stay there and we step on each other there. As a community, we must be in the next Government.” Senator Mutula said.
“Don’t threaten us. If they want to go, let them go and leave us in peace to lead the community in a good way.” He added.
Makueni MP Daniel Kitonga Maanzo called out the three Governors of Ukambani region for not having good intentions for Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and the Kamba community at large.
“I want to tell them that they are free to leave Azimio La Umoja because we cannot all be leaders and if you can’t accept to be lead then you can’t lead,” Maanzo said.
Maanzo further said that the three governors are not a threat to the Wiper Party as they have no influence on the Ukambani region voters.
“They can’t add any vote and they can’t also influence Kambas to leave Azimio. Our people love Kalonzo and they are in Azimio with him. They are not significant in Ukambani region,” Maanzo added.
Maanzo also condemned the last week’s attack on ODM party leader Raila Odinga and his convoy in Uasin Gishu alleging that Deputy President William Ruto and his allies were behind it.
He noted that the Deputy President lacks leadership qualities since he has been insulting President Uhuru Kenyatta and his allies, noting that a leader should respect people and be willing to accommodate everyone regardless of their flaws.
“Ruto is a low-level person. He has been insulting the President and people close to him. He even called respectable leaders like Francis Atwoli stupid. A leader should be able to respect and accommodate everyone without insults and despite their weakness,” the MP added.
