TIP TIP is dead, can’t be revived, Ex-MP Kalembe Ndile says
Former Assistant Minister Kalembe Ndile has finally ruled out the revival of his dissolved political party, The Independent Party (TIP TIP).
Kalembe has said TIP TIP party cannot be sold or acquired by another individual since he officially dissolved the party in 2017 and joined President Uhuru Kenyatta’s led, Jubilee Party.
In 2017 TIP TIP was among the thirteen political parties affiliated to Jubilee Party that were dissolved to merge with Jubilee Party in order to push for President Kenyatta’s re-election in 2017.
The Former Kibwezi MP has stated that those claiming he’s shopping for a buyer of the party are rumour mongers who are out to tarnish his image.
“I have seen some rumours in the social media claiming that I want to sale the dead party to Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko. Those spreading the rumours are idlers with a motive of tarnishing my image since the party was officially dissolved even at the Registrar of Political Parties,” said Kalembe.
The former Kibwezi MP was rewarded for his move after Sonko persuaded President Kenuatta to appoint the former legislature as a member of the Tanathi Water Works Development Agency. Kalmbe will serve as a member of the agency’s board, chaired by Kakuta ole Maimai, for a period of three years effective February 7, 2019.
