Kalembe tells Kalonzo to decamp to Jubilee
30 January 2016, 08:25
Kibwezi - Former Kibwezi West MP, Kalembe Ndile has urged Wiper Party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka to shelve any presidential ambition and instead support the Jubilee Government for the sake of development.
Ndile who is a member of the Water Regulatory Board argued that for Musyoka to be able to bring development to Ukambani, he must work closely with the Jubilee administration.
The controversial politician termed Musyoka’s presidential bid an elusive dream that would only confine him to political oblivion.
“My advice to Honourable Musyoka is to join the JAP bandwagon since it is the only formidable party capable of winning the 2017 General Election. Any attempt to ignore this fact is a sure road to a devastating loss by Musyoka and the entire Ukambani region,” he said in Machakos town.
He faulted the current arrangement within the CORD coalition, where Musyoka is a co-principal, saying it is ill prepared to win the next elections.
Citing the recent Coastal tour by President Kenyatta as a clear indication of JAP’s popularity in former opposition strongholds, the former legislator said it was time for Ukambani leaders to examine their position as far as political affiliations are concerned.
He stressed that for any meaningful development in the area to take place, leaders should align themselves with the government of the day instead of following parties blindly.
