We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Labour Party of Kenya acting Secretary General Peter ole Musei has resigned barely two months at the helm.

Musei’s exit is rumoured to have been engineered by in-fighting within the new party after it allegedly received a campaign boost of Sh40 million from Jubilee, two weeks ago.

LPK leader Ababu Namwamba, who had personally outsourced the hiring of Musei after showing David Makali the door, is said to have ganged up with members of his secretariat to frustrate the acting SG.

Inside sources within the party claimed Musei was seriously wanted out of LPK after the party allegedly received Sh40million from Jubilee Government for campaigns recently.

A close confidant of the party’s publicity secretary Erick Matsanza has revealed, and he is quoted saying; “We removed Makali and the next one is Musei.”

It is further rumoured that Namwamba was not at ease working with a non-Luhya after the exit of Makali.

“The main agenda here is to install a luhya as SG, this after receiving a directive from DP Ruto’s PA, Farouk Kibet, who was concerned Musei would not bring on board any numbers from his Maasai Community,” an insider confided with us.

Musei was welcome to the new party by Kalonzo Musyoka in company of Mutula Kilonzo Jr.

He said his resolve to change the leadership of Kajiado North Constituency remains the same.

Musei will be vying on a Wiper ticket for Kajiado North parliamentary seat that is currently the domain of Joseph Manje.

The seat has attracted more than a dozen aspirants for the August 8 general elections.
