Wiper Party Leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka has said recurrently that he will be going for the nation’s presidency in 2022.
The NASA co- principal needs to ensure that the Ukambani region is strongly behind his presidential bid before that time comes since before the August elections, Kalonzo had issues with different leaders from the region.
The former vice president has to go back to the drawing board to strategize on how to tame these leaders to keep his dream alive.
Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua
Machakos county boss Dr. Alfred Mutua is among the leaders Kalonzo cannot afford to ignore during his quest to ascend to power.
The vocal county boss defied all odds to retain his seat in the region despite the strong influence of the National Super Alliance (NASA). Through his political outfit Maendeleo Chap Chap, Mutua has transformed the lives of many residents.
Over the past five years, his political outfit has continued to gain support from the locals. Kalonzo needs that know that Mutua is a force to reckon with.
Former Kitui Senator David Musila
The former Senator David Musila opted to resign as Wiper chairman and vowed to rally the Kamba nation behind Jubilee.
Despite his old age, Musila still enjoys the support of many residents from this part of the nation. Kalonzo has to ensure that he finishes Musila.
