Kisauni Member of Parliament Ali Mbogo has detailed plans of the Wiper Democratic Party to set up a regional party headquarters in Mombasa in preparation for 2022 general elections.
Addressing the media during a delegates meeting in Mombasa over the weekend, the wiper MP said time has come for Wiper to be the party of choice for Mombasa and the Coast region so as to bring the much deserved change and development.
“We are tired of pledging obedience to a party that has neglected us making Mombasa a ghost town lagging behind economically for ages” said Mbogo adding that Wiper will clinch most if not all the upcoming by-elections and the general elections in 2022.
“We are meeting to discuss strategies on how to open the regional office in the first week of October with the Wiper party leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka since as wiper we believe politics is about stamping authority which we demonstrated when I won against an ODM candidate in the last elections.” Mbogo disclosed.
He said Kalonzo is a national leader and he deserves a heroic welcome since he will be contesting to be the fifth President of Kenya come 2022.
Mbogo noted that Wiper has resolved to make some changes including its signature campaign slogan to “Work without theft” (Kazi Kazi bila wizi) since it’s leaders have not been involved in any of the corruption scandals that have rocked most aspiring and serving political leadership in the country.
The Kisauni Legislature reiterated the party’s commitment to registering more members saying they have embarked on digital registration since a party solidify from its large membership.
He urged every one willing to join the Wiper party to do so since it’s a party that believes in democracy adding that all are welcome to vie for any positions including gubernatorial race which he has declared interest in on a Wiper ticket.
He said Wiper has the potential to revolutionise the region and offer people their share of development after failed promises by the region’s dominant ODM party.
The delegates reminded ODM the Coalition partner with wiper in the last elections to keep his promise and support Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka like they had agreed he would support him come 2022 having supported him twice in 2013 and 2017 general elections.
The wiper National Executive Council member Mohammed Zakir said regional leaders have sold the electorate and Mombasa has not grown over the years.
He observed that Mombasa city is becoming a ghost town whereas other towns like Nairobi are growing blaming ODM for being unfair to the people of Mombasa.
The Wiper NEC members expressed optimism they will clinch the next general elections in 2022 and the upcoming by election in Msambweni in December, 12.
