Angry Kalonzo kicks out 'errant' Wiper leaders

24 October 2014, 19:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Wiper Democratic Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has sacked errant party leaders in Makueni and Machakos Counties over poor leadership.

The party has sacked Majority Leaders in Machakos and Makueni counties for disregarding the party position on the impeachment of the Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana and Machakos Deputy Governor Bernard Kiala.

According to Kalonzo the two leaders let the party down and failed to show leadership.

Joshua Mwanga and Francis Mutuku, the two Majority leaders were sacked by Kalonzo who said that he will under no uncertain terms entertain ill discipline in the party.

" We feel that there have been things going on that are unacceptable and must be stopped in their tracks before they spread," Kalonzo said Friday after chairing a National Executive Council meeting.

He said that the open dissent showed by some leaders would not be tolerated.

" There has been a show of open arrogance and disregard for party structure and leadership which will not be allowed nor accepted in this party," he added.

Kalonzo has been forced to react to the open dissent within the party after Makueni and Machakos Governors Kivutha Kibwana and Alfred Mutua threatened to quit the party unless he reigned in on errant leadership within County Assemblies.

Kalonzo also said that he would not allow the dissolution of the Makueni County government.

" I am against it and all of us here are against it. We said it earlier and we will say again. We prefer a solution to the current impasse out of dialogue, not any other methods or means," he said.

Kibwana had mentioned that he might ask for dissolution of the County Assembly if the electorate agreed to such a course of action saying he and his government could no longer work with the County Assembly.
