Wiper takes action on Nyenze after endorsing Uhuru

Over the weekend, Nyenze publicly endorsed President Kenyatta for re-election.

“The Wiper Party strongly condemns and disassociates itself from the utterances appearing in a section of the press attributed to the Kitui West MP Francis Nyenze that appeared to support Jubilee presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta,” a statement signed by the party’s Executive Director Jared Maaka Siso said.

Over the weekend, National Assembly Minority leader Francis Nyenze publicly endorsed President Kenyatta for re-election; a move that has caused ripples among the Nasa fraternity.

Nyenze praised Mr Kenyatta’s Jubilee administration for a job well done in its efforts to empower special groups like the youth, women and the disabled and general development as outstanding.

“If somebody does well to you, you can’t forget. Can you forget those who have done well like Uhuru Kenyatta?” he said at Kauwi primary school in Kitui County during the launch of National Youth Service (NYS) programme in his constituency presided over by Youth Affairs cabinet secretary Sicily Kariuki.

“Let’s not be swayed by politics of empty rhetoric by those alleging President Uhuru hasn’t worked well. The truth is Uhuru has done a lot and we’ll elect those whose work can be seen” he said.

Wiper has further said that it will seek a clarification from Nyenze as to whether he has, since his nomination as Kitui West parliamentary candidate on WDM-K ticket, shifted his allegiance to Jubilee, after which they will make a concise decision on the way forward.

“Wiper wishes to state categorically that reports from the ground indicate that Kitui West in particular, and Ukambani in general, are locked under Wiper/NASA and under the able leadership of H.E. Kalonzo Musyoka, whose support from the region is near fanatical. Therefore, for Jubilee to even imagine it can make a significant impact in vote hunting from the region is an exercise in futility,” the statement read in part.
