'Khalwale's woes are self inflicted'

03 November 2014, 16:09 Ben Wafula

Bungoma - Bungoma County New Ford Kenya party leaders have called on embattled Kakamega Senator, Bonny Khalwale to stop blaming NFK party leader Eugene Wamalwa and former Lugari MP Cyrus Jirongo for his woes.

Addressing the press in Bungoma Sunday, the County NFK Organising Secretary Benard Wakamala alias Jaramogi said Khalwale's problems are self inflicted and should not be blamed on other leaders.

Wakamala noted that Khalwale himself started working with Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) and never heed to warnings from United Democratic Front (UDF) top leadership.

He said that the law is very clear especially article 14(5) of the Political Parties Act which states that a person shall be deemed to have resigned from the previous political party if he/she promotes the ideology, interest or policies of another political party.

Wakamala said that that Khalwale's public declarations that Wamalwa and Jirongo are behind his woes are misplaced.

“Let Khalwale tell us if it’s either Wamalwa or Jirongo who sent him to publicly support CORD. We are tired of him abusing other leaders for what he knows best. He has been campaigning for the opposition and preaching against the ideologies of UDF which is very close to the ruling Jubilee coalition,” said Wakamala.

Last week, UDF suspended Khalwale for paying allegiance to CORD and disobeying the party that sponsored him to Senate.
