Francis Nyenze has denied ditching Wiper party after publicly “supporting Jubilee party leader Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election.”
During a rally on Sunday 11 this Month, Nyenze and Kitui Senator David Musila asked youths to support the President on the basis of his development record.
Musila denied he did so, saying he was misquoted by “unknown forces”.
In a statement, Nyenze also said he was misquoted and that he was merely “rejoicing with youths over NYS jobs.”
“The chorus of condemnation led by my known political detractors, who see an opportunity to reignite their dimming political fortunes, will be turned into shame,” the Kitui West MP and National Assembly minority leader said.
The Kitui West MP, who will defend his seat on a Wiper ticket, appealed to his supporters to remain calm and focused ahead of the elections.
“I have never contemplated leaving Wiper for Jubilee. I assure you and everyone that I am in wiper and in NASA to stay,” he said.
During the rally, Nyenze also praised the Jubilee administration for doing a good job of empowering special groups such as youths and women.
“If somebody does well for you, you can’t forget. Can you forget those who have done well like Uhuru Kenyatta?” he said at Kauwi Primary School on Friday 9.
But Wiper, whose leader is NASA Deputy President candidate Kalonzo Musyoka, distanced itself from Nyenze saying his statements were personal, not the party’s.
