Party hop­ping a sin, but a par­don­able one, Kalonzo tells MPs at prayer break­fast

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Eastern -

Party hop­ping politi­cians are sin­ners, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said. “What do you call some­one who is elected on one party and jumps to an­other party in-be­tween?” he said.

Kalonzo was ad­dress­ing Makueni Gover­nor Kivutha Kib­wana on Mon­day at a prayer break­fast or­gan­ised for all lead­ers by the Makueni gov­ern­ment at ACK Board­ing Pri­mary School in Wote town.

He said, how­ever, party hop­ping is a for­giv­able sin. Kalonzo urged politi­cians to live in har­mony and be guided by Chris­tian val­ues.

Kib­wana said he has for­given those who had hurt him and asked those he has hurt to for­give him too. Mathioya MP Cle­ment Wam­bugu, who heads the Na­tional As­sem­bly’s prayer break­fast meet­ings, urged other coun­ties to fol­low Makueni’s ex­am­ple.
