Former Kibwezi West MP Kalembe Ndile has said he is ready to walk out of the ruling Jubilee party.

Ndile is rooting for the dissolution of the President Uhuru Kenyatta led party on grounds that it has brought misery to its members.

Ndile said the party should be dissolved and members left to chart a way forward.

Speaking to journalists after meeting his supporters in Kombani, Kwale County on Tuesday, the former MP criticized Jubilee's leadership claiming that it only serves the interests of a few people.

He said the majority of members were abandoned after Uhuru got re-elected in 2017.

“We should do away with Jubilee merger because it has brought no good to us,” Ndile said.

Ndile whose TIP TIP party dissolved to merge with Jubilee in the run-up to the 2017 general election claimed that they were lured to join the party.

The former MP who unsuccessfully contested the Mavoko parliamentary seat in 2017 polls said he will be the first to walk out of Jubilee.

Ndile said there is no future in Jubilee, adding that the party has been hit with internal wrangles since the merger.

This is not the first time Ndile is threatening to quit the ruling party.

Last year, he accused the party of sidelining him.

Ndile also accused the party of failing to award him a state job after he lost his bid for the Mavoko parliamentary seat.

Ndile said he will make a political comeback.
