Kivutha Kibwana after enough frustrations has decided to resign as the chair of the wiper Democratic movement.
While announcing his resignation, the Makueni Governor revoked his ties with Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s party citing that he could no longer be in an abusive marriage.
Kivutha also asked the wiper leader to revoke his chairmanship and appoint another leader to take up the mantle.
He also claimed that he would not bow down to the wiper leadership’s demands to subscribe to their narratives.
He has resingned close after being excluded from a meeting held by Kalonzo Musyoka in his Yatta home with wiper party officials, excluding the county boss.
“I’ll not attend that meeting because I wasn’t invited, but if Wiper leadership thinks they can intimidate us into supporting a certain political narrative, they are deeply mistaken because Kenya has changed and grown in democracy terms,” he told journalists when questioned on story.
Kibwana, together with the two other Ukambani governors Alfred Mutua and Charity Ngilu have previously called out the wiper leader publicly, asking him to resign from active politics.
The three, while forming the People’s Empowerment Movement argued that Kalonzo’s era as the Ukambani King Pin had not benefitted the Ukambani People.
They claimed that Ukambani needed progressive leaders intent on the development agenda for the region.
