Nairobi - Wiper Party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka has termed the defection by some members to the new Jubilee Party as inconsequential.
The Wiper leader said that the defection to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s party marks the end of their political careers.
According to Kalonzo, chances of the defiant MPs being re-elected in 2017 are very slim.
He said that Ukambani is an opposition stronghold and that the MPs and other members who have defected to Jubilee have no chance of surviving the 2017 onslaught.

“Those who have ditched Wiper and crossed to Jubilee have committed their political suicide because their chances of being elected on a Jubilee ticket are dim,” he said on phone.
Musyoka said that Ukambani will not vote for Jubilee government in 2017 and also refuted claims by a section of Jubilee politicians that he will be joining them.
The former VP said that crossing over to Jubilee Party will never be an option for him.
“Some people are already speculating that I want to join Jubilee party which is not true,” he said.
Kalonzo said that he is in Cord to stay, and expressed optimism that he will be endorsed to be the coalition's flag bearer in 2017.
A section of Jubilee Party politicians have been claiming that Kalonzo and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula are on their way to the new Jubilee Party.
