Makueni nominated Memebr of County Assembly (MCA) Magdalyne Mulwa has hit out at Governor Kivutha Kibwana accusing him of allegedly frustrating Kalonzo Musyoka’s 2022 presidential bid.
Mulwa alleges that Kibwana does not want Kalonzo to contest for the presidency in 2022.
Speaking to journalists in Makueni town on Friday, the MCA accused the Makueni governor of allegedly attacking Kalonzo and demeaning his character in public.
She said the Makueni county boss should engage Kalonzo privately instead of bashing him in public.
“Governor Kibwana should stop attacking Kalonzo and help build the party as the chairman,” Mulwa said.
The nominated MCA claimed that Kibwana is no longer answering Kalonzo’s calls.
She said as party members they are concerned in the manner in which its affairs are being conducted.
“He is the party chairman and he needs to provide direction instead of attacking the party leader,” she added.
Mulwa asked Kibwana to quit the party if he is not comfortable.
“We will not allow him or any other person to ruin this party because we love it,” Mulwa said.
In December last year, Mwingi Central MP Gideon Mulyungi and Kitui Senator Enoch Wambua accused Kibwana of allegedly frustrating Kalonzo’s 2022 presidential bid.
Kibwana has, however, rubbished the claims terming them malicious and mere propaganda.
The governor says he is not against Kalonzo contesting for the presidency in 2022.
Kibwana came under attack from a section of Wiper politicians when he questioned Kalonzo’s ‘mtu wa mkono' (errand boy) remark.
