Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said he has no intention of contesting for governorship amid the rebellion from his political backyard. 

Speaking during a meeting at Komarock in Machakos County on Friday, Kalonzo rubbished the claims that he was fighting the Ukambani governors. 

Kalonzo said governors Alfred Mutua (Machakos), Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni) and Charity Ngilu (Kitui)  have no moral authority to throw tantrums at him since he is not eyeing their positions in 2022 polls. 

He urged the trio to serve the residents with diligence before the completion of their terms in office to ensure the smooth running of the governments.

 “I am not a governor and I don’t aspire to be one. I’m not the type of leaders who blow their own trumpets. While everyone has a legitimate right to seek any office, they should do so within the rules of the game,” he said.

Kalonzo has been hitting headlines since he differed with Kibwana.

The county boss decided to show his intention to quit the party as the chairman following what he termed as frustrations from Kalonzo. 

He accused Kalonzo of using Members of County Assemblies (MCAs) of frustrating him and his counterparts.

He said the MCAs have been a thorn on the flesh of the governors since they were elected.
