NFK faces leadership wrangles following Wamalwa’s appointment

23 April 2015, 08:23 Ben Wafula

Bungoma - Cracks have started to emerge within the New Ford Kenya (NFK) party on who should succeed Eugene Wamalwa as the party leader.

A section of the party’s National Executive Council (NEC), have already opposed plans to have Bungoma Governor, Ken Lusaka, as the party leader.

NFK Youth League chair and NEC member, Evans Mang’oli said it was too early to decide on who should take up the position.

He criticized the calls by another NEC member, Julius Bakasa, on the succession, claiming that there would be a meeting to decide on the matter.

Mangoli stated that it was wrong for a section of members to start floating names of the would be next party leader yet the NEC had not convened any meeting.

“Statements by some party members should be clearly ignored and be treated as political as they cannot be speaking on behalf of the NEC members of the party,” he stated.

In a statement sent to the media houses, Mang’oli criticized the move to nominate Lusaka without the approval of the NEC membership.

He further stated that it was wrong for leaders to use their positions to start campaigning for the position of party leadership.

He also criticized the calls stating that certain leaders who were busy floating names had not worked closely with the party’s NEC and thus they would convene a meeting to clearly decide on the party leadership.

“It is also unfortunate that some of our leaders, who have never worked together nor closely with the party NEC, are touting to use their positions to take the party leadership by flouting leaders they wish to take the party leader position, as part of the NEC we will be happy to hold NEC meeting to discuss who will replace Wamalwa as the party’s leader,” Mangoli said.
