Mwingi Central legislator Joe Mutambo has pleaded with Kitui senator and the Wiper Chairman David Musila ti exit the party before he is locked out of Kitui gubertorial race in the coming August 8 general elections fillowing recent allegations that the party boss Kalonzo Musyoka prefers the incumbent governor over Musila.
It is during a recent on January 23,voter registration caravan in Kitui l,Kalonzo went on record to ask Musila to seek reelection as Kitui Senator and allow Governor Julius Malombe to go for a second term.
Senator Musila who seemed much angered by his boss’ plea was forced to withdraw from the voter registration drive motorcade. Later that day,he called a press confrence in Kitui town and issued a bitter and strong worded statement.
” I do not need anyone’s go ahead or support for my governor’s bid.I will go to the electorate and speak to them,” thundered Musila.
Mutambu who was speaking in Mwingi East during a voter registration drive said Musila should see these early signs and ditch Wiper or risk being locked out of the contest
” I want to urge my friend Musila to exit Wiper because by the look of things right now he’ll be frustrated during nominations.”
Mutambu who decamped from Wiper to Uhuru led Jubelee Party reiterated that change of parties is the only way to survive in Kitui politics.
