Former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile is now seeking to replace Senator Isaac Mwaura as the People Living with Disability representative in Parliament following his road accident in 2017 that left his right thigh broken.
Ndile said he was now a member of the Disability Society of Kenya and was, therefore, best suited for the position.
Ndile was involved in the accident in September 2017, when his vehicle collided head on 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," he said.
Ndile further stated that the party should consider the fact that Mwaura had shifted his alliance which was followed by his removal from the Jubilee Party Membership register.
"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," the former MP highlighted.
Ndile further prided himself in the fact that he had a strong public following, and was loyal to Jubilee, owing to the fact that he had even disbanded his political party to prove it.
"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," he stated.
Isaac Mwaura was among six other nominated senators who were expelled from the Jubilee Party over misconduct.
He, however sued Jubilee after which the court directed that the party refrain from firing the senator until his case had been heard and determined.
