Kitui Wiper MPs continued to reiterate that ODM Leader Raila Odinga should choose Kalonzo as his running mate.
Speaking during a prayer day of Kitui Senator Enoch Wambua at Kyondoni in Kitui West constituency, Makali Mulu, the MP Kitui Central, stated that they would not accept to be undermined, as the Kamba community has been voting for Raila Odinga for longer than any community.
“We respect you, Raila, that’s why as a community, we have stood with you for ten years, and we vote for him more than what the Luo community gives him in terms of votes. We are sending a simple message that No Kalonzo, No Raila,” Makali said.
Makali further claimed that the Wiper leader has been telling them to remain calm and trust that God will take charge and do wonders.
Mwingi West MP Charles Nguna also defended Kalonzo, saying that he is an African leader known in East African countries and should not be compared with some leaders who joined Parliament just the other day.
“You can’t compare Kalonzo with Martha Karua, who got 73,000 votes nationally; give us a break. I want to reaffirm what my colleagues have said No Kalonzo, No Raila, and the Kamba community are saying. I wish to thank Gideon Moi even after his party endorsed him; he said that he is not fit for the post and is not senior to Kalonzo,” Nguna stated.
Kitui West Member of Parliament Edith Nyenze also reiterated the message from his colleagues, saying that Kalonzo is the only leader who is fit to deputize Raila.
Kitui Senator Enoch Wambua threatened to resign from the running mate selection panel citing dishonest deals. Missed the story? check it out below;
