CORD MP calls Kalonzo dictator
11 February 2016, 19:24
Nairobi - A CORD MP has referred to Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka as a dictator and said he is willing to quit the party.
John Munuve of Mwingi North says he is happy to seek re election in 2017 on a different platform after falling out with Kalonzo.
Munuve, who has not been on good terms with party chiefs has been expelled from the Energy, Information and Communication and the Justice and Legal Affairs committees.
This is in reference to taking anti Wiper party stands in Parliament.
The MP says he is happy to be relieved of duty.
"I feel liberated, liberated from the tyranny of dictatorship. Liberated
because as a democrat, who believes in the freedom of free thought, I
have been constrained to be led by people with mediocre
brains masquerading as leaders and forcing themselves to lead us,” he said.
" I am happy to leave and I will leave in peace," he added.
Wiper Secretary General Omar Hassan said that Munuve would be free to leave and seek election elsewhere.
" He is free to leave and should do so. We have to adhere to party rules or leave," he stated.
Other MPs also facing likely withdrawal from the party are Regina Ndambuki of Kilome and Joe Mutambu of Mwingi Central.
