Governor Kivutha Kibwana cuts ties with Kalonzo's party
Governor Kibwana is out of "abusive marriage" with Wiper
Speaking at ATC Kwa-Kathoka on Thursday, during a public participation forum, Professor Kibwana asked Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to remove him as the party chairman, if he wishes to.
He further blamed Mr Musyoka for using his juniors to fight him politically.
“We know he has been using some junior Wiper politicians to frustrate me. You remember the other day, he even used former MCAs to insult me at a funeral in my home county,” said Kibwana.
The public cheered at Prof Kibwana when he asked them if they would let him leave Wiper Party since their ideologies did not match.
He faulted Kalonzo for announcing during his father's burial that he would be President Uhuru Kenyatta's errand boy and castigating people who would be opposed to that.
Prof Kibwana opined that Mr Musyoka was pointing a finger at him since he knew that the Makueni Governor would question him on his decision.
He further criticized Kalonzo for not championing for development in Ukambani but isolating the community from the National government.
The Makueni governor maintained that he is not plotting to overtake Mr Musyoka as the Ukambani kingpin but was only pushing for Ukambani region to play a major part in the national politics.
"What we have with Governor Alfred Mutua and Governor Ngilu is not political. This is only focused on the economy. We want to champion for the development of the three counties in order to uplift our counties," Prof Kibwana stated.
His sentiments come in the backdrop of a bitter rebellion planning Prof Kibwana out of Wiper Party if he can't toe the party line.
