Some Wiper leaders are pushing party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to expel Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana from the party.

On Tuesday, Kalonzo held a closed-door meeting to discuss what has been defined by Wiper leaders as an uprising against his leadership by three Ukambani governors.

However, some Members of Parliament from the party advised the party to call for dialogue and reconciliation.

Dialogue

The hardliners, who include former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama, Kitui Senator Enoch Wambua and Mwingi Central MP Gideon Mulyungi, want Prof Kibwana forced.

On the other hand, the moderates who include MPs Makali Mulu (Kitui Central), Jessica Mbalu (Kibwezi east), Charles Nguna (Mwingi west) and Dr Irene Kasalu (Women rep Kitui) among others have called for dialogue, arguing the party should listen to Governor Kibwana and his colleagues.

Mr Musyoka held a meeting at his Yatta home which Prof Kibwana was not invited to and journalists locked out of.

Replacing Kalonzo

"I'll not attend that meeting because I wasn't invited, but if Wiper leadership thinks they can intimidate us into supporting a certain political narrative, they are deeply mistaken," Prof Kibwana said.

During the meeting, the leaders discussed the political wrangles between governors in Ukambani region and their respective county assemblies.

Prof Kibwana and his colleagues Dr Alfred Mutua (Machakos) and Charity Ngilu (Kitui) were criticized by MPs for their plans to rally the community in a different political direction.

The Governors, in several public meetings, opined that the Kamba community doesn't stand a chance at the presidency through Mr Musyoka since his three bids had been unsuccessful.
