Kalembe who dissolved his TIP TIP Party in 2017 to join Jubilee Party has been appointed as a member of the Tana Athi Water Board

In a gazette notice signed by President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday, Kalembe will serve for a period of three years which is non-renewable.

The former MP had in the recent months complained of being sidelined in the Jubilee Party.

He at one point threatened to pull his TIP TIP party out of President Uhuru Kenyatta led Jubilee Party.

The former MP claimed that some parties under the Jubilee umbrella are being discriminated.

According to political analyst Peter Ngure, Kalembe's appointment is a boost to his political career.

"The appointment gives Ndile a political lifeline but he has to do more to make it back to active politics," the analyst said on Saturday.

Ndile is among vocal Kamba politicians.

He unsuccessfully contested the Mavoko Parliamentary seat in the August 8, 2017, general election.

The former Assistant Minister says he has not given up on politics and will make a comeback.

Meanwhile, former Mwingi Central MP Joe Mutambo has been appointed as chairperson of Water Resource Authority.

He will serve for a period of three years.

Mutambo lost the Mwingi Central seat in the August 8, 2017 polls.
