Mombasa,KENYA:Jomvu Mp Hon. Badi Twalib has officially ditched the wiper party ahead of the August general elections.
“For now just take it that Badi has resigned from Wiper. More to unfold’, said Moffat Mutero, his personal assistant.
However, he dismissed reports making round on social media that the MP has decamped for fear of battling for nomination ticket with a youthful leader Mathias Shipeta who threw his hut in the ring.
Mutero stated that Hon. Badi has ditched Wiper party for both political and personal reasons and not fear, dismissing Shipeta’s candidature as a drop in the ocean.
“Badi has been the deputy organizing secretary for Wiper party nationally and at all cost he had the chance to get direct nomination. So dig deep before posting shallow analysis’, he said.
The Jomvu MP decamped following what the PA said was political witchunt from his fellow Wiper member Mombasa senator Hassan Sarai.
Sarai is said to have sponsored his personal assistant- Mathias Shipeta- to challenge Badi for the Jomvu seat, a move that has not gone down well with Badi.
Speculation is rife that the first time MP will join ODM.However, Mutero said Badi is exploring many options before making an official announcement.
Meanwhile the National super alliance NASA scheduled to hold a political rally on Friday at Masinde Muliro grounds in Mathare.
According to a press release sent to newsrooms, a major announcement will be made during the rally.
NASA is yet to name its flag bearer for the presidential elections.
