Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has come out to explain why he missed the ODM leader Raila Odinga’s Makueni campaign rally on Friday.
Kalonzo said that just Raila and Deputy President William, he is also a presidential candidate therefore, he also has his political rallies to attend.
He refuted claims that he missed Raila’s Ukambani tour because there is bad blood between them.
“Ni jambo lisilofaa kufikiria kuwa, sababu Raila anakuja Ukambani ni lazima mimi niwe kule. Mimi ni mgombea wa kiti cha urais, yeye anatafuta kiti cha urais, wacha yeye aende ukambani na mimi nitaenda kule Kisumu nikatafte kura zangu,” Kalonzo said.
Kalonzo further claimed that it would be unreasonable for him to join Raila in his Ukambani tour yet they have not held any political rally in the recent past together.
“Kama sikua na yeye wakati alikua Turkana, sikua na yeye wakati alienda Garisa, ama mahali kwingi alikoenda, kuna maana gani nijiunge na yeye sasa wakati anakuja Ukambani?” he posed.
Kalonzo’s sentiment comes at a time when the former prime minister is transversing his (Kalonzo) political region spreading his Azimio la Umoja initiative.
In his tour in the region, the ODM chief was received by the regional governs including Charity Ngilu (Kitui), Kivuth Kibwana (Machakos), and Alfred Mutua (Machakos).
