Kalonzo says he will support Uhuru’s succession plan

Kalonzo andPresident Kenyatta.

MACHAKOS, Kenya, Dec 24 – Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka hs pledged support for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s 2022 succession plan.

Speaking in a leaders’ Consultative meeting in Yatta, the former Vice President reiterated his earlier commitment of standing with President Kenyatta “to ensure the Kamba community will be in the next government”.

“I and the Kamba community are not flip-flopping and where Uhuru will be even after 2022, we will be there. We are now engaging everybody as a free gear. But our true direction is to support Uhuru,” he said.

“I have not spoken to Raila of late, but I know his support for Uhuru until he finishes his term has not changed,” he said of Raila’s political dalliance with the president following their March 2018 handshake that signaled an end to their long-standing political animosity.

Musyoka has been ODM Odinga’s running mate in 2013 and 2017 presidential elections, in which they lost to President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.

But the controversial swearing-in of Odinga after the last disputed presidential vote that Kalonzo and fellow National Super Alliance principals Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula snubbed has soured their political relations.

On matters Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), Kalonzo categorically stated the need to have a powerful Prime Minister.
