Kalembe Ndile Claims He Is Now Disabled, Seeks Jubilee Nomination To Replace Isaac Mwaura In Senate

CAPTION: Former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile

Former Kibwezi Member of Parliament (MP) Kalembe Ndile has emerged from the shadows and written to the Jubilee Party seeking a nomination to the Senate.

In a letter that circulated on social media on Thursday, Kalembe Ndile now wants to replace ousted Senator Isaac Mwaura as the representative for People Living With Disability (PLWD) in Kenya.

According to the once prominent Kamba politician, he was recently involved in a grisly road accident that left him disabled and thus makes him qualify for the position.

“During the repeat presidential election, I was assigned the role of mobilizing the Nairobi County’s Members of the County Assembly (MCAs) for the last campaign rally at Nairobi’s Uhuru Park. Due to unavoidable circumstances, the meeting went on up to well past 2 AM. On my way home, I was unfortunately involved in a serious car accident which left my right thigh broken, among other serious injuries,” read part of his letter.

As if to imply Jubilee owes him a favour, Ndile evoked the fact that he dissolved his former party The Independent Party (TIP) in order to form a winning team with President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.

“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. Then I went ahead to vie on the Jubilee party’s ticket for the Mavoko Constituency seat during the 2017 general election,” he wrote in the letter addressed to Secretary-General Raphael Tuju.

On March 29, the Registrar of Political Parties removed the name of nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura from the Jubilee Party Membership register.

This move came after the party on February 8 expelled six nominated senators, Mwaura included, on grounds of insubordination and gross misconduct.

The High Court, however, issued orders staying the decision by the registrar until a case Mwaura has filed is heard and determined.

Mwaura’s case has been set to be heard on April 15.
