Former Kibwezi member of parliament Kalembe Ndile has Come out to explain how he and Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua fell apart.
On Wednesday Kalembe told this writer that his friendship with Mutua ended when he (Mutua) fielded a candidate in Mavoko parliamentary race in 2017.
Kalembe said he had been allies with Mutua for a long time and expected his support for the seat.
"I have always supported him and his ideas. We were friends but when he fielded Philip Kalonzo to run for Mavoko parliamentary seat on a Chap Chap ticket instead of supporting me showed he never valued our friendship," said Kalembe.
He said that he is glad that despite that he was able to come second garnering 22,000 votes after the incumbent Patrick Makau.
"Despite the fact I didn't win, I got 22,000 votes contesting for the first time and the Chap chap guy got 2,000 votes," said Kalembe.
He will now vie for the same seat on a Wiper ticket after frustrations in the Jubilee party.
"I'm now supporting Kalonzo and his party I will use Wiper in the 2022 elections because the Mavoko MP will be vying for governorship," He said.
