The latest buzz reaching KO indicates that the current Kenya ambassador to Turkey Kiema Kilonzo could be shifting camps to join the Wiper democratic party from the Narc party led by former Lands CS Charity Ngilu.
Ambassador Kiema Kilonzo is rumoured to be having closed door meetings with wiper top wiper brass, reliable sources told KO that the ambassador is eyeing the Kitui Senatorial seat and could be running on a Wiper ticket come 2017 general elections .
If the information we have is anything to go by then end of this month or early August Amb. Kiema Kilonzo will be in Kenya to officially join Wiper team and declare his political ambition.
Amb Kiema now joins the likes of Chris Kwoko and Ikonge in the Senatorial contest which has attracted less attention with veteran politicians going for the gubernatorial position.
The ambassador had vied for the gubernatorial position in the last general elections under the Narc party flag which he lost to the incumbent Dr. Julius Malombe who was the Wiper’s governorship flag bearer at the time.
Amb Kiema would later secure the ambassadorial position while his party leader Charity Ngilu was appointed a cabinet minister before being suspended by Jubilee government on allegations of obstructing justice.
