A section of Kitui Members of County Assembly allied to Narc party have dismissed yesterday’s meeting called by Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka at his Yatta home.
Addressing the press in Kitui Town on Wednesday led by the assembly minority leader John Kisangau, the group dismissed the meeting terming it a desperate move to engineer divisions amongst Ukambani leaders and the community at large.
The group accused the Wiper boss of thriving in divisive and retrogressive politics triggered by his own personal interests and benefits.
The group argued that it is due to “poor leadership” that the Kamba community had lacked national political recognition in both political and development matters which has seen the Kamba community swim in poverty.
“We have backed Kalonzo in his presidential quest for so long and ended up being all time losers and we won’t take that route anymore. It is high time we dropped Kalonzo and pave way for fresh leadership with a clear track record and scorecard working in the interest of the people, not for their personal interest or fame,” Kisangau added.
The MCAs supported the economic, political and development unity spearheaded by the three Ukambani governors, terming it the solution to the region’s problems.
Moses Munyalo, who is Kitui County Youth Movement leader appealed to the Wiper leader to tame his MCAs, who enjoy majority seats in the assembly calling for sobriety and give dialogue a chance to chart the county’s destiny.
“The youth in this county are yet to unlock Sh200 million for businesses and tenders from the government. The on-going political heat is affecting the future of the youth in this county,” declared Munyalo.
Commenting on the proposed impeachment of Governor Ngilu, he implored the MCAs to be development conscious rather than fighting the incumbent office bearer who was duly elected by the electorate.
