Wiper Party plans to hit United Democratic Alliance (UDA) national chairman Johnstone Muthama by fielding his Ex-wife Agnes Kavindu to run for the Machakos Senate seat.

Wiper says UDA, which is associated with Deputy President William Ruto, might clear Muthama to fight for the seat in the by-election scheduled for March 18.

Wiper calculates on how to kick Muthama out of any Ukambani contests.

Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile, Lower Eastern Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) co-coordinator Jackson Kala and the late senator Boniface Kabaka’s widow Jenifer Mueni were interviewed for the post last week.

However, Wiper settled on Mrs Mueni but the resolution was revoked following protests by the late senator’s Chama Cha Uzalendo (CCU) party.

Kathiani MP Robert Mbui who doubles as Wiper Party national organising secretary yesterday said the party had settled on Muthama Ex-wife Agnes Kavindu.

“We have Agnes Kavindu Muthama on our side and she is a strong candidate and already has given us all Muthama’s secrets and we will floor the ex-husband very early in the morning,” said Mbui.

 In what appears to be a looming battle royal between Muthama and Kalonzo, Mbui said that having Kavindu on board was the final nail in Muthama’s political coffin.

Agnes Kavindu contested Machakos Women Rep seat in the 2017 polls and garnered 96,000 votes on a Jubilee ticket. She is also a member of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Task Force.

“We know they (Tanga Tanga) want to sponsor Muthama as the candidate and we are waiting for him, " Mbui added.

" He has been pronouncing himself as a political giant, but we will send a close relative,” said Mbui.

But Muthama restated that he will not vie for any elective position come 2022 but to work with DP Ruto towards forming the next government.
