Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana dares Wiper to eject him from the party
Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana has dared the Wiper Democratic Movement to go ahead and eject him from the party if it finds him no longer useful.
Kibwana says the party has written him numerous letters asking for his appearance before a disciplinary committee, including the latest requiring him to do so by July 30, 2021.
“Let them (Wiper) do as they wish. I cannot stop them from ejecting me from the party… If I’m no longer useful to the party, I cannot stop them from doing what they want,” said Kibwana.
According to the Makueni Governor, accusations by the Kalonzo Musyoka-led party that he supported a different candidate during the Kithuki/Kitise by-election is flimsy because an agreement between Wiper and his former Muungano party called for supporting of the two parties.
He says an accusation that he doesn’t pay monthly subscription does not hold as his funding of party activities means it is the party that owes him and not the other way round.
The Governor maintains that Wiper can do as it wishes because he cannot risk his ill health travelling to Nairobi while doctors have confined him to rest after a surgery two months ago.
He spoke on Monday when he hosted a delegation of kamba elders who paid him a courtesy call at his residence.
The elders, Thome wa Akamba, told Kibwana, who has shown interest in the presidency to escalate his campaigns to other parts of the nation.
They hailed him as a tested leader owing to his public service career spanning many years.
