Elders want Wiper to withdraw Nyenze’s nominations certificate for re-election as Kitui West MP.
The Kitui group named ‘Atumi ma Thome’ said Nyenze is a traitor as he backed the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta who is Jubilee Party boss.
They also accused the MP of undermining the Kamba community’s concerted push for party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to become president in 2022.
The elders termed Nyenze a disgrace and claimed he was “bought” by Jubilee to disorientate Kitui voters.
They asked the Akamba to remain steadfast in Wiper and NASA and ignore “shenanigans by Nyenze and his ilk”.
Chairman Michael Musila said Nyenze’s calls should be ignored and that his sentiments, which were backed by Senator David Musila, were unfortunate and unacceptable as he violated laws on political parties.
“As he speaks, he has a Wiper nomination ticket for the parliamentary seat. The political Parties Act does not allow him to support or to appear to support any other political party. It is an offence,” he said.
Group county chair Wisman Ngovi said: “Nyenze appeared to have been given millions of money by Jubilee to support Uhuru Kenyatta and derail the political agenda of the Kambas who are solidly behind NASA.”
He said the legislator’s utterances made it crystal clear that he had jumped ship.
“This is contrary to the wishes of the Kamba community which is fully behind NASA. Nyenze is expected to be in the forefront of Wiper campaigns, having been sponsored to seek re-election. But he has chosen to betray his party,” he said.
