Former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile has accused some Jubilee party leaders of intentionally striking out his name from the list of East Africa Legislative Assembly (EALA) applicants.
The former Tip-Tip party leader has as a result threatened to walk out out of President Uhuru's party. He said he presented his name for consideration to the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) but his name was scrapped off from the list by the national Assembly majority leader Aden Duale and his Senate counterpart Kipchumba Murkomen.
“I obeyed the call by the National Assembly clerk Micahel Sialai and senate clerk Jeremiah Nyegenye, the presiding officers for the applications and presented my documents for considerations but Mr. Duale and Mr. Murkomen removed my name from the list in bad faith”, said Kalembe.
He disclosed that briefcase parties agreed to fold up and form Jubilee Party on condition that their members would be consulted regularly before decisions are made. He said members of his former party were not consulted before ejecting his name from the list.
“These two consulted none in their decisions, even the TIP TIP party members weren’t consulted”, he said.
“As a party we will take necessary measures, we aren’t treated as equals, other parties making Jubilee have been given positions where Ken Lusaka, Eugene Wamalwa from New Ford Kenya have landed on positions”, Kalambe wondered.
Equally, he commended Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka over his decision to detach himself from Raila's planned swearing in.
“It was wise for Wiper for not supporting Raila’s ill-intended move to be sworn-in on December 12, such deeds may land him in martial court."
