MP threatens to quit Jubilee weeks after joining

03 August 2016, 15:59 William Korir

Nairobi - An MP has threatened to quit the Jubilee Coalition over what he terms as uncertainty over the future of an agreement with the ruling wing.

According to sources close to the Webuye West MP Dan Wanyama, he is upset over the impending move by Eugene Wamalwa to vie for the Nairobi Governor's seat.

The belief is that having led them into the Jubilee Party and dissolved the New Ford Kenya party, there is the likelyhood that they have been duped with the Water CS leaning towards the city as opposed to the western Kenya region of which NFK is from.

There have been mutterings that Wamalwa will be given a direct ticket to vie for the Nairobi seat which have caused uproar but it remains to be seen whether the MP is serious.

" The MP is watching developments closely. Wamalwa, however much the move makes sense, would have been good if he was from New Ford Kenya and not the Jubilee party, which has raised questions as to whether he will dump us once he moves on," the aide told News24.

Wanyama himself was guarded on the story.

" We are still young in Jubilee. We will see," he stated.

Nairobi MPs Maina Kamanda of Starehe, John Njoroge from Kasarani, Benson Mutura of Makadara and James Gakuya Embakasi rebuked the move to front Wamalwa, calling it suicidal and short sighted.

They termed the decision to anoint him as hasty and urged the top two leaders to ensure that the decision does not come back to haunt the party.

Wamalwa has yet to comment on the saga.
