Mwingi Central MP Gideon Mulyungi has said that it will be easy for Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka to defeat President William Ruto in the 2027 polls.
In an interview with Mutongoi TV, a local TV station, Mulyungi said that Kalonzo is the viable option for the presidency and with his suave demeanor has managed to win over Kenyans.
Mulyungi noted that the Mount Kenya region voted for Ruto in the 2022 polls because there was no other alternative asserting that this time round they won’t let Kalonzo rally behind anyone.
“The only person I know can be president now is Kalonzo Musyoka, he is accepted by everyone and this time round we won’t allow Kalonzo to support someone else for the fifth time,” said Mulyungi.
“There was a perception that the deep state can make one a president but the perception was demystified by Ruto. So the same way Ruto was able to clinch the presidency without the support of the Government is the same way we will win without the Government while he has it at the palm of his hands,” he added.
The vocal legislator took a swipe at Wiper leaders pushing ODM leader Raila Odinga to leave Azimio leadership to Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
According to Mulyungi, The wiper brigade should devise ways of wooing the voters before thinking of depending on Raila.
“Leadership is sought not given and those leaders pressurizing Raila to let Kalonzo inherit Azimio and its followers are misleading him,” The MP went on.
