Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has told off Deputy President William Ruto for using his name to campaign in Ukambani.
Speaking during Azimio One Kenya Rally at Suswa in Narok County, Kalonzo dismissed Ruto’s remarks that he would give him a post in the Kenya Kwanza government if he becomes the president.
Kalonzo told Ruto to mind his own business and stop focusing on him because he decided to support ODM leader Raila Odinga months ago.
“William Ruto, while at my home turf in Mwingi started defending me and pretending that he is my lawyer, pointing out that Raila deceived me and has bewitched me to support him. Yesterday, he said that President Uhuru should leave him alone, and so I tell him (Ruto) to please leave Kalonzo alone,” Kalonzo said.
He also asked Ruto to look for votes without necessarily mentioning his name in Ukambani to gain popularity because Kalonzo is only one person, and what they wanted from the Azimio government was for all Kenyans to benefit from the government.
“We want everyone to benefit from the person who becomes the Fifth president of Kenya and not Kalonzo alone. He says that I have been despised, and I tell him that ‘pili pili usiyoila yakuwashiani?,” Kalonzo added.
While in Mwingi, Ruto told the residents that he knows that Kalonzo doesn’t like him, but he has no issues with him and is ready to give him a position if Kenya Kwanza wins the August 9 polls.
” When Kalonzo passes here, tell him that hustler has greeted him and inform him that the hustler government that we are going to form with you people of Mwingi, Kalonzo will also have a position in the government and no one will come to interview him because we know him as a senior counsel,” Ruto stated.
Ruto reiterated that he has no issues with Kalonzo claiming Raila has been misleading Kalonzo and playing mind games to get support from Ukambani residents. Ruto promised that Kitui is among the counties that the Kenya Kwanza administration will give priority in providing water to exploit its potential in agriculture and manufacturing, which will help create jobs for the youth who are qualified yet unemployed.
