Wiper Party Secretary General Hassan Omar has resigned from the party.
Mr Omar said he will not campaign for National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader Raila Odinga in the October 17 presidential elections for personal reasons.
The party’s Executive Director Dr Jared Siso on Thursday confirmed Omar’s resignation saying the move will not create any leadership vacuum in the Kalonzo Musyoka led party.
“We have two validly elected officials who deputised Mr Omar and so they will take his responsibilities immediately,” said Dr Siso on phone.
The two deputies who will fill Mr Omar’s position are former Wiper nominated Senator Judith Sijeny and ex- East Africa Legislative Assembly member Peter Mathuki.
Dr Siso said Wiper’s National Executive Council will soon convene to find former Mombasa Senator’s replacement in the party.
