Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka is a buffled man after a new political party called New Democrats Party in his Ukambani backyard has been launched.
The new political outfit formed by businessman David Masika was launched on Aprial Tuesday 11 in a Nairobi Hotel.
Masika will face Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana for the county top job in August 8 polls.
The successful businessman who is Kalonzo’s close friend had handed his nomination papers to run for the governor seat on the Wiper ticket but made an about-turn after Kalonzo signed a pact with Kivutha Kibwana of Muungano party. Kalonzo-Kivutha’s deal seems not have gone well with Masika.
” My main reason for decamping Wiper is the type of pact between Wiper boss and Governor Kivutha where he has been assured a direct nomination ticket.So in a situation as this where does that leave me?”explained Masika.
Masika has however, said that his friendship with Kalonzo Musyoka remains intact and the launch of New Democrats has his blessings. He said that his new party will be affiliated to NASA and will support the coalition’s presidential candidate regardless of who is picked as the flag bearer.
