Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has heaped praise on Kitui East MP Nimrod Mbai for being aggressive and bold in his political operations.
Kalonzo said he specially recognized Mr Mbai for his boldness in tackling problems facing the people and challenged other Ukamnani MPs to emulate him.
“I want to recognize and thank this young man Nimrod Mbai for being bold. He’s bold, very bold and if you were like him, nothing would beat you”, Kalonzo told MPs, MCAs and other Wiper Party luminaries yesterday when he hosted them for meeting at his Yatta home.
The Jubilee party MP who was a surprise guest at the Meeting is known for his no nonsense character marked by his political tagline ” Kama Mbaya Mbaya” which has also turned into his popular nickname in Kitui county.
The fiercely eloquent MP has often locked horns with Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu while defending his electorate on a variety of issues such charcoal ban, invasion of farms by camel herders, coal mining among others.
Kitui political pundits see the move as an endorsement and invitation of the MP into the Wiper fraternity in the wake of the handshake between Kalonzo and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Mr Musyoka said the youthful MP was his son owing to his marriage to a daughter of his cousin.The endorsement by Kalonzo stirred up immediate applause in the meeting.
