Kalonzo calls urgent Wiper meeting amid crisis
23 October 2014, 17:21
Nairobi - Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka will hold a top brass meeting at his Wiper Movement party Friday to solve internal issues.
Kalonzo has been out of the country the last few weeks and whilst away, there has been unrest in the party, with ramifications in Makueni County where Governor Kivutha Kibwana has been impeached.
He has been accused of letting Governors be threatened by Members of County Assemblies and will thus use the top brass meeting to address the current concerns.
" The National Executive Council NEC meeting will be held Friday to address the current issues plaguing the party, a statement from his office said Thursday.
Kalonzo was also away when Governors Kibwana and Alfred Mutua of Machakos threatened to leave the party of Kalonzo does not stem the assault by Wiper MCA's.
The party leader is also set to talk to the NEC about the current situation in Ukambani.

" Kalonzo will face the myriad of issues,
the most critical being in Makueni, which has turned to a blame
game between the Governor Kivutha Kibwana and the dominant Wiper
Party," the statement from his office added.
Mutua claimed that he was not being protected by Kalonzo from MCA's who were causing problems over issues he cannot agree with them over.
" We are getting no protection and Kalonzo can deal with that personally. He has yet to do anything which is utterly disappointing, he said over the weekend.
However, talk of the former Vice President losing grip of the party was denied by persons close to him.
" There is nothing like that at all and I can assure you he is in total control," an aide told News24.
