Kibwezi West MP Aspirant and the UDA coordinator, Makueni County, James Mbaluka has advised Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to join the Deputy President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza camp.
Mbaluka noted that the people of Ukambani have no faith in Raila Odinga since he betrayed the Wiper Party leader by failing to honor the agreement they had in 2013 and 2017.
“If Raila Odinga can betray Kalonzo and fail to honor their agreement after we voted for him, and had faith in him for 10 years, we can’t trust him this time with our votes because there is a big possibility that he can betray us again,” Mbaluka said.
Speaking at a burial in Makindu, the aspirant called on William Ruto and the UDA party team to accept Kalonzo in their party and urged Ruto to make the Kamba kingpin his running mate in the coming August 2022 general elections.
Mbaluka praised the UDA party, saying unlike the Azimio la Umoja party, the Ruto-led party respects leaders and honors its agreements and promises.
“I want to ask Kalonzo to work with people who respect him, are trustworthy, and are ready to keep their promises,” he added.
He further said that there is no space for Kalonzo in Azimio la Umoja and the Kamba region can’t gain anything by being on that side.
A few days ago, the former vice president said he would only work with Raila Odinga if their working relationship is based on structured negotiations and the NASA agreement of 2017, a condition he said the former Prime Minister was free to accept or reject.
However, responding to Kalonzo’s demands, the newly appointed Presidential Campaign spokesperson for Raila, Professor Makau Mutua, rubbished Kalonzo’s remarks claiming that the deal in question was no longer legally binding since the National Super Alliance (NASA) was not in existence anymore.
Last week, DP Ruto allies Mwala MP Eng. Vincent Musyoka alias Kawaya and Former Nairobi Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke congratulated Wiper party leader Kalonzo for his stand against working with ODM leader Raila Odinga.
