Former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile on Wednesday, September 11, claimed that Deputy President William duped him into dissolving his Tip Tip party in order to join Jubilee.
Speaking on KTN News, the vocal politician explained the machinations behind the dissolution of countless political parties to form the ruling Jubilee party.
Ndile complained that they were currently frozen out as members of the ruling party and that the last time they did anything as a party was a photo session with President Uhuru Kenyatta after he secured his presidency for the second time in 2017.
"Nikipeana chama changu cha Tip Tip tulikaa chini na tukaongea vizuri sana, na tulikaa na Ruto tukaongea vizuri sana akasema ametumwa na mkubwa, akasema kila chama itapewa milioni thelathini, lakini hiyo pesa haikutoka,
which loosely translates to,
"When I agreed to dissolve my Tip Tip party, we had an agreement with Ruto who claimed to have been sent from the highest office. He said that each party would receive Ksh30 million, but this never materialised." he lamented.
The bitter ex-MP claimed that there was wanton corruption within the ruling party, alleging that the kickback they were promised ended up in the hands of a few.
He further urged DPP Noordin Haji and DCI boss George Kinoti to step in and investigate what he termed as grand-scale corruption.
"Ufisadi sio lazima uende kuiba pesa, ufisadi ni vile una con watu. mi nilikoniwa na hii serikali na ata wao wanajua, which loosely translates to, corruption isn't limited to physically stealing money, corruption also involves conning people and I was conned by this government," he lamented.
Back in 2017, the former Kibwezi legislator announced that he dissolved his party and joined Jubilee citing President Uhuru's administration's commitment alleviating poverty.
