Two Wiper leaders clashed in public over State house visit
Kitui, Kenya: Two Wiper Democratic Movement leaders clashed in public as the party leader and former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka watched in disappointment.
Mwingi Central MP Joe Mutambu on Friday accused Kitui County women representative Mrs Nyiva Mwendwa of belittling and terming him unschooled and uncivilised before his constituents.
Mutambu told off Nyiva in her face, describing her behaviour as in bad taste and that cannot be tolerated in the recent times.
The Wiper MP challenged the former cabinet minister to table evidence on claims that he had visited State House and ate “ugali” with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The rally convened by Kalonzo at Nyanyaa Primary School grounds in Endui location, Mwingi Central District to console families of the12 people killed in cold blood by a machete-wielding gang a fortnight ago, turned into a face-off between the two leaders.
“I will not stomach this political nonsense any more. You can call me whatever you want to discredit me but remember I am not that foolish. Nyiva has stood here to th row mud on me without facts. I will not allow to be pulled back unfairly,” Mutambu angrily fumed.
The MP said he had suffered in silence over back-biting by some Wiper leaders in Kitui County who fueled animosity and tried to mislead the former VP on various issues touching on his character. He said he will continue courting friendship with anybody whom he viewed would assist his constituents and change their livelihood.
Nyiva who spoke before Mutambu said it was disheartening that some local CORD leaders were warming up to Jubilee Alliance in a move aimed at demeaning and demoralising the Wiper party leader.
She claimed that some of the “embarrassing MPs” were politically “naïve, uneducated” and people who lacked decency.-standardmedia.co.ke
