Wiper Party denies fronting Prezzo as Kibra by-election candidate
Kalonzo Musyoka led-Wiper party has denied reports that it will be endorsing Jackson Ngechu Makini, alias “CMB Prezzo” for the forthcoming Kibra by-election.
The party now claims that its tweeter account was hacked, and they do not know any reports of endorsing the musician for the by-election that is slated to take place on November 7.
“Our attention has been drawn to reports that the Wiper Democratic Movement-Kenya will be fielding Jackson Ngechu Makini, aka CMB Prezzo, as its candidate for the Kibra Constituency by-election. The true position is that the WDM-K is not fielding any candidate in the by-election,” read the statement in part.
The party, however, said it has launched an investigation into the hacking.
“In the meantime, the WDM-K has launched investigations into possible hacking of its Twitter handle.”
The Kalonzo Musyoka-led party stated that Prezzo might be their candidate for the Kibra Parliamentary seat in the 2022 General Election.
“While it is true that CMB Prezzo was today received by the WDM-K Party Leader Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka as the newest member of the Party, has no intention of vying for the seat at this time but in 2022,” said Wiper.
“The WDM-K urges Kenyans ignore any other contradictory information concerning the Party’s position on the Kibra Constituency by-election.”
Mr. Kalonzo was seen in a photo session with a group of his party members, where the Prezzo was also present at the Party’s headquarters.
