Wiper Party leadership is considering having the former Kitui governor drop his petition against incumbent governor Charity Ngilu.
Speaking on Thursday at former West Kitui parliamentarians home,Governor Prof. Kibwana of Makueni County indicated that Dr. Malombe would be prevailed upon as soon as possible to reconsider his move.
Ngilu’s lawyer Kioko Kilukumi on December 13th 2017 before the High Court at Milimani in Nairobi dismissed Julius Malombe’s claims that August 8th election was marred by election irregularities. The court bench to hear and determine the case is led by Justice Pauline Nyamwea.
Upon losing to Gov. Ngilu,the former Gov. Julius Malombe termed the election as unfair, incredible and full of voters bribery .In addition to that,Dr. Malombe said that some of his agents were not allowed into some of the polling stations.
“Elders will be detailed to have him drop the case,” Prof. Kibwana said.
Gov. Kibwana was reacting to the Kitui’s incumbent Senator Hon. Enoch Wambua who had earlier asked the Wiper leadership to talk with Malombe about dropping his petition.
Speaking at the same event,Governor Ngilu said that it would be a welcome move if Dr. Malombe heeded the call to drop his petition.
“We have established there’s a certain individual behind Dr. Malombe’s petition. We will one of these good days publicly name that person,” Ngilu said.
Mama Ngilu also happily expressed her confidence of emerging victorious against Dr. Malombe if a fresh election is ordered.
Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka ,who spoke last said the issue can be solved locally.However, Hon. Kalonzo added that he did not personally want to much on that matter.
He said these words when he visited the family of late Hon. Francis Nyenze to condole them at his home at Kyondoni in Kavati Division, Kitui West constituency.
Hon. Nyenze died and was buried when Hon. Musyoka was abroad attending to his ailing wife,Pauline Kathini in a German Hospital.
