Wiper party decides Kalonzo Musyoka’s fate

This comes amid reports of a split within NASA

Wiper party’s leadership led by former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama and former Cabinet Minister Titus Mbathi said that it was pointless for Kalonzo to take an oath that has no political value to him.

“Why would you be sworn in just for the sake of it and yet you will not bring home any State power that can help your supporters after the event?” Mbathi asked Musyoka at a Wiper leaders’ meeting held at Stoni Athi Resort in Machakos County.

The Wiper leaders instead urged Kalonzo to revamp the Wiper Party ahead of the 2022 election.

Mathi said that Kalonzo had undergone public ridicule particularly from ODM supporters for skipping the January 30 swearing-in of NASA leader Raila Odinga, yet there was nothing tangible to be derived from the event.

Muthama said that he was a member of the event’s organizing committee and had deliberately chosen to keep off the ceremony for reasons that were both valid and in the best interests of the party.

The move comes amid reports of unease within the NASA coalition even as its leaders insist that the coalition is still intact.
