Wiper pri­maries will be fair, 2017 as­pi­rants told

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Eastern -

A top Wiper of­fi­cial in Mwingi North, Ki­tui, has scoffed at threats by some as­pi­rants to quit the party for al­leged lack of fair­ness in pri­maries.

Mwingi North sub­county Wiper chair­man John Makau has said there will be no ma­nip­u­la­tion of re­sults at the pri­maries.

“Spec­u­la­tion about pre­ferred Wiper can­di­dates is just wish­ful think­ing. Those is­su­ing the threats are giv­ing an ex­cuse to ex­e­cute their long-held plans to de­camp,” Makau told the Star on the phone yes­ter­day.

He was re­spond­ing to last week­end’s po­si­tion by Tharaka MCA Sa­muel Ikunga that he was ready to quit Wiper be­cause MCAs feel threat­ened.
