Wednesday, January 26, 2022 – Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka may be headed to Deputy President William Ruto’s camp after his OKA co-principals, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula made the first move.
This was revealed by socialite lawyer-turned-politician Karen Nyamu, who claimed that Kalonzo is on the way to the Hustler Movement.
Speaking during an interview, Nyamu, who is eying the Nairobi Senatorial seat on Ruto’s UDA ticket in the August polls, said Kalonzo has no option but to join the DP to protest the frustrations he has received by supporting ODM Leader Raila Odinga.
She noted that Kalonzo will join Ruto because chances are high that Raila will not choose him as his running mate – a position he wants so badly.
“Kalonzo is used to getting a running mate position from Raila. I don’t see him getting it this time around.
“He is just being stubborn, but I foresee Kalonzo joining hands with Ruto either out of protest or to get a better deal,” Karen said.
At the same time, she mocked Raila’s intention to give Mt Kenya a running mate position, saying that might not help him garner enough votes from the region.
“Azimio is so deluded and focused on the mountain; the elusive mountain than the existent mountain for them.
“They are willing to give someone from Mt Kenya the running mate position which will bear no fruit,” she said.
Karen said that Ruto is willing to give Kalonzo a better deal than what Raila can offer if he joins his team.
According to her, Ruto is willing to give Kalonzo a deal that will “make him look more presidential and be taken seriously.”
The Wiper leader has, however, maintained that his journey for the presidential seat is still on.
