Former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile has been silent since he lost a parliamentary seat in last year’s general election.
Ndile, a popular former lawmaker has remained politically silent and is among the many Jubilee politicians who lost in last year’s election and are waiting for the Jubilee administration to give them jobs or resuscitate their political careers.
The former MP folded his TIP TIP party to merge with Jubilee Party before unsuccessfully contesting for the Mavoko parliamentary seat in 2017.
Political analyst Peter Ngure says Ndile, a critic of Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, political career is done and dusted.
He argues that Ndile, a former assistant minister can only revive his political chances if he partners with Kalonzo’s party.
“Kalembe Ndile is among politicians whose political fates were sealed and might not make it back no matter how hard they try,” Ngure said.
Ndile had been quoted complaining of being sidelined after merging his party with Jubilee.
In an interview in March, Ndile said he had not lost hope of making it back to active politics and that he has what it takes and still has a chance in Ukambani politics.
The former MP is among several Ukambani political losers and political rebels now battling for political survival.
