In Summary

  • Speaking in Busia County on Sunday, Kalonzo said that although the 2022 debate is healthy, it should not outshine service delivery to Kenyans.
  • The Wiper boss reminisced his days as the country’s second in command to the presidency saying the holder of the seat is always constantly fought.
  • The former VP was flanked by Busia County Governor Sospeter Ojaamong as well as Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa.

Wiper Democratic Movement party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said he is keeping his options open for any political realignments in the run up to the 2022 General Election.

Speaking in Busia County on Sunday during a harambee for Kolait Catholic sub-parish in Teso South, Kalonzo said that although the 2022 debate is healthy, it should not outshine service delivery to Kenyans.

The Wiper boss, while seemingly coming to the defence of Deputy President William Ruto, reminisced his days as the country’s second in command to the presidency saying the holder of the seat is always constantly fought.

“I was the 10th Vice President, but we have had only four presidents. Being a Vice President or Deputy President is really a slippery business,” said Kalonzo.

“When you hold that office, you are severely fought, pulled down, dragged all over and all other dangerous episodes just to bar you from inheriting the presidency.”

Kalonzo further urged President Uhuru Kenyatta and relevant government agencies to continue with the war on graft, adding that those ethnicizing the fight should be “forgiven.”

He also expressed gratitude to fellow political leaders – President Kenyatta, DP Ruto, his NASA co-principals Raila Odinga, Moses Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi – as well as the country at large for standing with his family after the passing on of his father Mzee Mairu.

The former VP was flanked by Busia County Governor Sospeter Ojaamong as well as Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa.
