Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has countered all speculations that suggest he wants to deflect his party in a bid to work with Jubilee.
He declared that he will never work with the Jubilee administration of President Uhuru Kenyatta, accusing the party of bullying him into joining the coalition. This he says was why the ruling party withdrew his security following IEBC protest.
Stating that the party is deeply rotten with corruption, Kalonzo said the members of the ruling party is in great need of him but he will never be lured into working with them.
Further more, the politician said he has risen above the influence of bribery or intimidation. Kalonzo railed at the ruling party for putting massive effort on winning votes and splitting opposition rather than improving the standard of living of all Kenyans.
The statement obviously nets in Jubilee event which has been hosting delegations of leaders from Ukambani over the last three weeks to reach out to a region that supported Cord leader Raila Odinga in 2013 presidential election.
Kalonzo noted that he will welcome President Uhuru Kenyatta’s visit to Kitui to commission various projects on May 19 but will seize the opportunity to remind him that it is a Cord zone.
Kalonzo lambasted Wiper politicians who have been urging him to abandon Cord leader Raila Odinga and co-principal Moses Wetang’ula, adding that their loyalty to him is pretentious and unreal.
The former vice president seems to have directed the statement at Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua, Mwingi Central MP Joe Mutambu, Mbooni MP Kisoi Munyau, Kitui South MP Rachael Nyamai,Mwingi North MP John Munuve and Kilome MP Regina Ndambuki who allegedly held a press conference on Tuesday urging Kalonzo to dump Raila for saying that an MoU signed between Wiper and ODM in 2012 is no longer effective.
Kalonzo, who got to join Cord in 2012 through the effort of Senator Johnstone Muthama, said he will remain loyal to his coalition in the midst of all the rumours.
Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua, who is seen as a rebel by Wiper MPs and professionals, has promised to gather 300,000 votes to Uhuru in the region. The pledge will get the Governor to gatecrash his way to the Jubilee high table and stake a Kamba claim there.
