The MP for Mwingi Central Joe Mutambu has dismissed claims that he is doomed to fail after ditching Wiper party and making ties with Jubilee.
“I will not allow anybody to intimidate me because of working closely with the Jubilee government. I was elected to serve my people and not the party. People of Mwingi Central will definitely re-elect me considering my track record,” he said.
He dismissed Wiper leader’s threats saying he is not a voter in Mwingi Central and can’t influence anyone to not vote for him.
“Can he make my grandmother and brothers not vote for me?” asked the MP. “People must know we can make it in life without them and if we don’t that’s not the end of it.” He added
Mutambu says he does not regret his decision to go against Kalonzo and support the government as he has since delivered many development projects that have changed people’s lives.
He said the Kiia Dam in Enziu village, de-silted by the National Youth Service will alleviate the suffering residents have been undergoing in search of water. The project involved purifying water harvested in the dam and pumping it to the neighboring Enziu Secondary School, dispensary and market.
The water will be also pumped to Nguni and Ukasi in Mwingi East Sub-counties, Mutambu said.
Mutambu among other two Wiper Party leaders were accused of being traitors and have since decamped from the party. Among them Mr. Munuve (Mwingi North) and his colleagues Ms. Regina Ndambuki (Kilome).
They are considered to be no longer loyal to Wiper, the party has de-whipped the renegade parliamentarians.
