BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,18TH APRIL 2017-Former Kenyan Ambassador to Tanzania Ali Chirau Mwakwere who is eying the Kwale County gubernatorial seat on a Wiper Ticket has been dealt a blow after his running mate, Simon Mkalla, ditched him for Issah Chipera of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) a day before the party conducts its nominations in the county.

This comes as a boost for Chipera who will be facing off with Kwale County Assembly Speaker Sammy Ruwa, former Permanent Secretary for Forestry and Wildlife Mohammed Mwarapayo wa Mwachai and Businessman James Gereza Dena in tomorrow’s ODM nominations.

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka had endorsed the Mwakwere and Mkalla pair at a rally in Kinango a week ago.

 Mkalla did not immediately say why he made a U-turn despite the fact that Mwakwere will not be subjected to a nomination.
