Wiper party on Friday disregarded the resignation of Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana citing no formal communication was given.

Judith Sijeny who is the secretary general, argued that the decision by Kibwana was made without consultations which is contrary to the regulations of the party.

Sijeny pointed out that the Makueni County boss had not been actively involved in party matters especially in the decision of the party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to work with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Kibwana had in 2018 criticised the decision and termed it unhelpful.

The governor had on Thursday stepped down from his position and claimed that he could not tolerate how matters were being handle by his leader.

During a public participation, the politician had asked Musyoka to remove him as the party chairman, if he wished to.

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,” remarked Kibwana.

The professor had alleged that he was being rebuked after he had questioned the decision made by the once Vice-President of Kenya.
