Ex-Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has asked Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka to part ways with “dynasties” and join hands with President William Ruto in order to become Kenya’s next president.
According to Sonko, President Ruto had beaten the “dynasties” and they would never recover hence Kalonzo has a chance to become president by Working with Ruto.
“Kalonzo you are a leader who is recognized worldwide. When I was going through a lot from the handshake government, were it not for you, Senator Kiio, Senator Maanzo, and Governor Mutula, you would have buried me long ago. Kalonzo was the first to come and rescue me when I was under attack. I respect him a lot. You will never hear me insult him.”Sonko said.
“Sometimes it is good to talk, a lot of our Ukambani leaders are afraid of talking. Kalonzo should have been president. We tried going to Mombasa with Kalonzo and other leaders. We had challenges but we spoke with one voice and told Raila if Kalonzo is not his deputy he would lose. He lost.” Sonko added.
He thanked Kalonzo for standing with him despite being asked by Raila Odinga, Martha Karua, and president Uhuru then to step down for Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir.
“I said No and fought like a man, a time came and I weighed options and saw our party leader was being played. Honorable Ruto called me so that we could work together to help Kenyans and I agreed and we won. I would like to tell my uncle Kalonzo to leave dynasties. You can become the next president, any leader from here who vies for president before Kalonzo will be cursed. The dynasties have received a technical knockout. In Kenya kwanza, we don’t know who will be the next president, when you are close there you will be.”Sonko concluded.
On a rejoinder, Kalonzo asked Sonko to inform Ruto to get out of the way and cautioned him against calling some Kenyans dynasties.
“We want to unite the nation. We will work together as an opposition, a loyal opposition and I have no problem with Ruto, he is my younger brother.” Kalonzo added.
The leaders spoke in Makueni during the burial of Senator Maanzo’s mother Miriam Munini Maanzo.
