Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka says he has no personal differences with Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama and his Kitui counterpart David Musila. Musyoka says he has in fact held talks with Muthama and settled that the latter should now focus on Nation Super Alliance (NASA) presidential campaigns.
Muthama and Musila, who are both former Kalonzo allies, renounced Wiper after falling out with the NASA presidential flag-bearer’s running mate, reproving him of working with their opponents. Muthama will defend his seat as an independent candidate while Musila will also vie for Kitui governor as an independent candidate. Last week, Muthama threatened to reveal “overwhelming” secrets about Kalonzo that would make Kenyans lose sleep.
“I do not rush into things and you know that. I take my time, but when I do, I do not hold back. What I have and what I am promising to reveal is shocking information that will shake the whole country,” he said. The former Vice President said he has no skeletons in his political closet and there were no secrets that could shock Kenyans about his life.
“I have no secrets, I have played clean politics, the only important thing is that I will lead my team to beat Jubilee in the first round of the coming elections,” Kalonzo told the Sunday Standard.
He said he had played peaceful and mature politics that always endear him to Kenyans and now “I’m at my best to send Jubilee home”. “I wrote in my book what people did not know about me. All I have done in my political life are above board,” he said.
Kalonzo said Musila is still an integral part of Wiper and he is going “nowhere”. “Musila has gone nowhere. In fact, we have not picked anyone to replace him as the party chairman. After the election, he can still take back his seat,” said Kalonzo.
Kalonzo spoke highly of Muthama and Musila as mature politicians who were principled and their resolve is steadfast to ensure a NASA victory. “The few MPs in Ukambani who defected and Machakos governor are the only ones on the wrong side of history as far as Ukambani politics is concerned,” he said.
Kalonzo said their focus now as the NASA team was to win the presidency in the first round. “We want to help Jubilee by winning this election. It’s proving painful for them to continue leading. With the kind of challenges they have gone through, they surely must want to rest after August,” he said.
