I did not expel Makali from Labour Party - Ababu Namwamba

Makali faulted some Jubilee MPs and Namwamba for planning to expel him from the party. Already his position has been handed out.

 

The outspoken Namwamba has dismissed claims that he schemed for the removal of the Secretary General David Makali from the party, after the emergence of links with opposition’s political outfit The National Super Alliance (NASA).

The former TV pundit Makali was on Friday stripped off his role as the party’s Secretary General and his position handed to the organising secretary Peter ole Musei, for allegedly being too close to some NASA bigwigs, including Raila Odinga, while the party is interested in the Jubilee Party politics.

The party’s National Executive Council also faulted Makali for failing to popularise Labour Party in his Bungoma backyard. He was also accused of dictatorship and arrogance in the party, a vice the Namwamba led party could not put up with.

Makali later accused Namwamba and a section of the Jubilee Party officials of fueling a ploy to have him removed from the party.

Speaking while on his tour to popularise his new LPK party in Garissa over the weekend, Namwamba termed the allegations raised by the embattled Makali “utter nonsense”, rubbishing claims that he was given money to oust his party General Secretary.

LPK’s National Executive Council is slated to have a meeting this week to discuss the matter. A decision on the disgruntled Makali will be brought to fore, a source which within the party which sought anonymity has told P Live Kenya.
