Ditch NASA for the sake of your 2022 plans- Uhuru to Kalonzo
President Uhuru Kenyatta has once again challenged the National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential running-mate, Kalonzo Musyoka, to ditch the opposition outfit and join Jubilee to secure his political future come 2022.
President Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, during Jubilee’s campaign rally in Makueni County on June 1, called upon Kalonzo Musyoka – whom they referred to as “a true gentlemen being misled by Raila Odinga” to ditch NASA and join the ruling coalition for a possible team-up with Ruto in the 2022 General Election.
Speaking during an exclusive interview with Citizen Radio on Tuesday, July 11, President Kenyatta extended a warm welcome to the Wiper Party leader in Jubilee, insisting his experience will be rightly utilized in the ruling coalition as opposed to NASA where he undeservedly plays second fiddle to Raila Odinga.
“Personally I don’t have any problem with my brother Kalonzo Musyoka. I know he is a gentleman and that is why am requesting him not to look at the past but where we are going. I urge him to come and join DP Ruto so that they can continue with transforming lives of 40 million Kenyans in 2022 onwards,” said President Kenyatta.
This comes even after Kalonzo laughed-off the claims, reducing the statements made by the two as to a sign of “their frustrations, agony and bitterness after their repeated failed forays into the lower Eastern region.”
However, the President called upon residents of Ukambani region to vote for his administration based on its track record and to seize from playing tribal politics.
He cited several projects Jubilee government has rolled out including the construction of the Yatta Water Canal, some roads as well as the connection of people to electricity.
“The government is preparing to invest about Ksh 20 billion for the constructions of Thwake Dam. This will ensure that resident have enough water to drink and for farming. We have connected residents to electricity three times more than what had been done before Jubilee took over. We have also launched Ksh 1.4 billion water projects to benefit Mwingi residents,” added the President.
