Former Mukuruweini MP Kabando wa Kabando has ditched Martha Karua's NARC Kenya party over what he termed as 'cultistic politics'.
In a statement Tuesday Kabando said he has notified the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties(ORPP) to deregister him from the party.
"As a matter of conscience and principle, I have instructed ORPP to deregister I, Hon. Kabando wa Kabando, from narc kenya. I believe in leadership teamwork and honesty. I detest chicanery and corruption. I thank Martha Karua and wish her well in Azimio ventures," he stated
Kabando expressed his dissatisfaction with how the Azimio Coalition party was playing its opposition role.
He however promised to continue keeping President William Ruto's administration in check.
"I'll continue to boldly & independently, or in league with like-minded souls, play my patriotic part to keep President Ruto's increasingly rogue regime in check. Sadly, neither ODM nor NarcK are acting institutionally in this endeavour. Cultistic politics is bad for democracy."
Kabando unsuccessfully vied for the Nyeri Senate seat in the 2022 general elections.
