Professor Kivutha Kibwana is among the most respected leaders in the country. 

He has been giving Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka sleepless nights lately after he 'resigned' from his seat as the party's chairman.

After publicly declaring that he had relinquished the seat, the Makueni governor made unexpected move that surprised many both in Ukambani region and the country at large.

The county chief immediately after his declaration, paid ODM party leader Raila Odinga a visit at his home in Karen, Nairobi County.

This raised lots of questions not only from Kenyan leaders but general netizens.

Some people think that the former Prime Minister had a hand and influence to Kibwana’s 'resignation'. 

Even though the governor explained why he resigned and visited Raila, most Kenyans are not yet satisfied with the reasons that he gave.

They still ask themselves why Kibwana immediately after his controversial declaration visited the ODM chief and not other leaders who have equally declared their 2022 presidential bids from the Ukambani region. 

Several people think that he has betrayed the party and Raila is trying to use him to divide the Kamba nation.

Kibwana was among the leaders from the Ukambani region who stood firm with Kalonzo in the 2017 General Elections.
