As months, weeks and days gallop ever closer towards the 2022 polls, it seems that Dr. Samuel Kobia, head of the National Cohesion and Integration Commission, NCIC, may have his work already cut out for him. Politicians appear to get more brazen and fearless in their rhetoric. In the latest indication of where the country is headed, a Wiper Democratic Movement party member and Kalonzo Musyoka loyalist is now controversially claiming to know the real reason the Kamba community has voted twice for Raila in 2013 and 2017.
Makau Mulu, member of parliament for Kitui Central now alleges that the Kamba community didn’t vote for Raila twice based on the Orange Democratic Movement party leader’s manifesto or even ideological beliefs. He went ahead to claim that the real reason the community voted for Raila was purely ethnic, and that it was because Kalonzo Musyoka endorsed him.
Mulu claimed that ordinarily Raila wouldn’t get as many votes as he has been getting from Ukambani were it not for the support of Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka. The Wiper legislator went as far as saying that since it was becoming more and more likely that Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka wouldn’t be running on the same ticket, chances were that Raila would see a drastically reduced support base from Ukambani.
Makau Mulu was speaking while on KTN’s weekly political show Crossfire which was hosted by the station’s presenter, Akisa Wandera. Others on the show were former Jubilee nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura and Kieni member of parliament, Kanini Kega.
Mulu, who is also a second-term parliamentarian took exception to the current dominant belief that Central won’t present a candidate in next year’s forthcoming elections.
Mulu claimed that by virtue of Kambas being very close to Kikuyus, they have an understanding of them that goes deeper than that of other communities. He cautioned that while other communities had already taken it as a matter of fact that Kikuyus wouldn’t have a candidate of their own, it might very well be the case that months to the poll, they’ll come up with a candidate of their own.
