Kitui wiper MPs have asked governor Malombe to leave wiper party in peace if he’s not contended with how the party is being run.
Led by National Assembly minority leader Francis Nyenze, the leaders said that every member was free to join a party of their choice instead of soiling the party’s name in the media.
“If malombe has seen a better outfit than wiper he is free to leave instead of calling for resignation of the current officials” said Nyenze.
Nyenze while rubbishing Malombe’s call for Musila’s resignation as the party chairman, said that Kitui Senator David Musila and former vice president kalonzo Musyoka were the founders of the party and that governor Malombe’s demands were uninformed.
“We are all comfortable with Musila’s leadership, if the the governor feels otherwise he can as well form his party where he will have powers to say or do whatever he feels like” continued Nyenze.
Nyenze’s sentiments were shared by Kitui Rural MP Charles Nyamai who accused Malombe of shaming the party with his corrupt deals.
“We want malombe to leave in peace the way he came and as a matter of fact in Musila we have found his replacement” unearthed Nyamai.
He also said that they were not going take from a person who joined the party three years ago.
Nyamai added that all the seven wiper MPs of Kitui had agreed to support Musila for the county top seat.
Kitui has seven wiper MPs Makali Mulu (Kitui Central) Francis Nyenze (Kitui West) Bernard Kitungi(Mwingi west) Marcus Muluvi (Kitui East) John Munuve (Mwingi North) Charles Nyamai (Kitui Rural) and Joe Mutambu (Mwingi central).
Mwingi west MP Bernard Kitungi, accussed Malombe of overlooking the input of the other elected leaders in Kitui county sentiments that were echoed by Kitui East MP Marcus Muluvi.
This comes barely two days after governor malombe asked Musila to step aside to pave way for free and fair party primaries.
The leaders were speaking at kabati town during a football tournament that had been organised by the area MP Francis Nyenze.
