The Independent Party (TIP) leader Kalembe Ndile has revealed that he is eying for the Senatorial post currently occupied by Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura.
The Former Kibwezi Member of Parliament had declared that he is a member of the Disability Society of Kenya as the People Living with Disability following his road accident in 2017 that left his right thigh broken and therefore is best suited for the position.
The former Kibwezi legislator stated that he was involved in an accident in September, 2017 when his vehicle collided head on with another car at Devki area along the Nairobi-Mombasa highway.
“On my way home, I was unfortunately involved in a serious car accident which left my right thigh broken, among other serious injuries,” Ndile said.
Ndile also said that he is best placed to be nominated by the Jubilee party considering the fact that Senator Mwaura had been expelled from the party.
“Though the party may still have its pre-election nomination list, it is important to note that some hitherto preferred candidates have shifted their party allegiances as proved by the likes of Hon Mwaura,” he noted.
Ndile further claimed that he had a strong public followers and was very loyal to the Jubilee party.
“As you are aware, I was the party leader, The Independent Party (TIP) which I willingly dissolved to form Jubilee Party so that we have a winning team.
I managed to become a strong number two in the Mavoko parliamentary race with more than 25,000 votes for both the president and myself,” The former Kibwezi lawmaker stated.
This comes after Senator Isaac Mwaura was expelled from the Jubilee Party over misconduct alongside other six nominated senators.
He, however sued Jubilee party after which the court directed that the party refrain from firing the Senator until his case is heard and determined.
