The Wiper Party on Wednesday unveiled its party candidates for the vacant Machakos senate seat and Kitise/Kithuke Ward in Makueni Constituency.
Agnes Kavindu Muthama who is the Ex wife of Johnstone Muthama will fly Wiper's flag in Machakos while Sebastian Muli will be the party's candidate in Kitise.
Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka at the same time accused Deputy President William Ruto of hypocrisy.
Kalonzo said the DP is opposed to rotational presidency championing for one united Kenya while when he was given a 50 per cent stake in government in 2013, he ended up considering his tribesmen in his appointments.
He further said he is not out to wreck families as he unveiled former Machakos Senator Johnston Muthama’s ex-wife as the party’s candidate in the March 18 Senate by-election.
“For the avoidance of doubt, this movement does not believe in wrecking families, we must make this very clear. We are not taking that name because of that any other name. What has guided the party is her own qualification as a leader who demonstrated high leadership capability,” Kalonzo said at Wiper headquarters in Karen.
“She just happened to share the name with other people.”
Muthama fellout with Kalonzo last year and joined Deputy President William Ruto’s camp and he is now the chairman of UDA, a political outfit believed will be DP’s vehicle to rund for President in 2022.
Kavindu is not new to politics.
In 2017, she unsuccessfully contested for Machakos Woman Representative on a Jubilee ticket.
Meanwhile, Wiper party also issued a nomination certificate to Sebastian Muli who will be the party's candidate in Kitise Ward, Makueni.
