Former nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura has given his two cents after Kiambu Woman Representative Gathoni Wamuchomba moved from ruling party Jubilee to United Democratic Movement (UDA).
Mwaura, in a post on Wednesday, 23 June 2021, listed some of the things that he had warned Jubilee about but fell on deaf years leading to his dismissal from the party.
The politician said that he had warned about the economy and public debt, but no one wanted to listen to him and now the country is broke.
He added that he also warned about the ground shifting, but he was dismissed, and Juja came to pass where Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria’s People’s Empowerment Party (PEP), which is associated with UDA, beat Jubilee in the parliamentary by-elections.
Additionally, he had also warned about an equal opportunity at the Presidency and party management, and now Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) and Jubilee have disclosed that they were merging ahead of the 2022 General Elections.
Mwaura also pointed out that he had cautioned that Jubilee members would start exiting the party and find new homes, and now the truth was unfolding after Gathoni Wamuchomba joined UDA.
“I warned about mass exodus early this year. Now see this. The truth never dies; it sets you free,” he said.
The Kiambu Woman Rep joined DP William Ruto affiliated UDA party explaining that it was the right thing to do, and her people also wanted her to join the party ahead of next year’s much-anticipated polls.
One of the politicians who lamented after Gathoni ditched Jubilee was Nyeri Township Member of Parliament Wambugu Ngunjiri, who said that she was a valuable player in Jubilee’s team while adding that losing her was regrettable.
Taking to his social media page, the outspoken lawmaker said that despite not agreeing with Wamuchomba’s move, he still has a lot of respect for her and respects her decision and was looking forward to engaging with her on the other side politically.
He went on to say that he will not be surprised if the party loses more valuable players to their political rival parties.
He warned Jubilee members to fix the problems of Jubilee and take Wathoni’s move to ditch the ruling party as a lesson and a warning.
