Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana has dared Wiper Democratic Movement to eject him from the party if it finds him no longer useful.
Kibwana has been accused by the party of supporting a different candidate during the Kithuki/Kitise by-election but he has termed the accusations as flimsy.
Besides this accusation, Kibwana says the party has written him numerous letters asking for his appearance before a disciplinary committee, including the latest requiring him to do so by the 30th of this month.
He also dismissed accusations that he doesn’t pay monthly subscriptions. The Makueni governor spoke when he hosted a delegation of Kamba elders who paid him a courtesy call at his residence.
This is not the first time the governor who has declared interest to vie for the presidency in the 2022 poll is challenging his boss, the defacto Ukambani kingpin.
The rift between the two is set to widen after the Akamba Council of Elders endorsed the governor’s 2022 presidential bid.
However, the governor did not divulge much about the visit only stating that the elders trooped to his residence in Wote to check on him following his surgery in May.
“I’m thrilled by the love and care extended to me by the various leadership groups from our region. Today I hosted members of Atumia ma Thome who paid me a courtesy call in Wote. Besides prayers for my quick recovery, we discussed issues of national cohesion and development”
Kibwana has maintained that he’s committed to participating in any unity talks that seeks to bring the community together to speak in one voice ahead of 2022.
The President who recently visited the region urged the leaders to stop divisions and supremacy battles.
