The political landscape in Ukambani is shifting after 11 of the 22 Wiper MPs joined the newly formed Jubilee party.
This means the political grip Kalonzo Musyoka enjoyed in the region is loosening. The Cord co-principal has accused MPs who have shifted allegiance of being ‘bought’ to undermine him as the region king pin.
Deputy President William Ruto welcomed the leaders amid much fanfare at the Kasarani stadium.
The leaders are:
Joe Mutambu-Mwingi Central
John Munuve-Mwingi North
Charles Nyamai-Kitui West
Victor Munyaka-Machakos Town
Rachael Nyamai-Kitui South
