With Kenya’s evolving political landscape, coupled with the kind of change required to bring the promise of a better tomorrow for our youthful population, I find myself at the point where I must pursue a different political path than Wiper currently represents.

It is for this reason that I hereby tender my resignation, with immediate effect, from the Wiper Democratic Movement’s National Executive Council as well as relinquish my Platinum membership in the party,” reads Mueke’s statement.

Mueke who was the first Deputy Governor of Nairobi City County added in a tweet that he will soon announce the party he shall be moving to.

My tour with Wiper comes to an end today… will let you know soon where I shall be moving to,” he added.
