Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has opened up on teaming up with DP Ruto in 2022 amid reports that he is warming up to the charms of DP Ruto and considering being his running mate in 2022.
This comes after Mavoko MP Patrick Makau divulged that Kalonzo was considering teaming with Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance ahead of the polls and dismissed any possibility of working with Raila:
“I will be the most stupid fellow on earth to support, for the third time, a presidential candidate without a measure of reciprocity,” Kalonzo said during an interview with NTV mid this month.
Indeed Kalonzo was Raila’s running mate in 2013 under the Cord coalition and in 2017 under Nasa.
Raila has been an isolated man with the NASA principals ganging up against him even as Musalia dismissed claims that there are talks for the revival of Nasa, maintaining that the reports are a “distortion of issues.”
The ANC leader has ruled out working with his ODM counterpart saying he cannot trust Raila. “We have a very serious deficit of trust in Nasa. In fact, maybe it is irredeemable,” Mudavadi said.
“Leaders should stop sending conflicting signals and messages. When you send conflicting messages, you discourage people,” he said during a tour of the Coast mid this month.
Over the weekend, the Wiper Party boss set the record straight stating that wiper does not share the same principals with UDA and neither does he with DP Ruto.
“Ruto is my political challenger in 2022 and I’m ready to face him. We don’t share any political ideology with the UDA,” Kalonzo said.
