Former Mukurweini MP Kabando wa Kabando announced he had cut ties with Martha Karua’s Narc Kenya party.
Karua is a former Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance running mate and leader of Narc-Kenya.
Kabando said Tuesday he has since informed the Registrar of Political Parties of his decision to break off from Karua’s Azimio-affiliated party.
He said he has the utmost respect for Karua and Azimio leader Raila Odinga.
Kabando however argued he made the decision since he is allegedly not satisfied with the avenues Azimio is using, as the official opposition party, to keep President William Ruto’s administration in check.
Kabando joined Karua’s political outfit in March 2022 in a bid to replace the then Nyeri Senator Ephraim Maina who had set his eyes on the county’s governor seat at the August 2022 polls.
He however lost the contest to UDA’s Wamatinga Wahome.
