Ruto Gets Major Boost As Ukambani Allies Assure Him That The Community No Longer Backs Kalonzo

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has since lost the support he once enjoyed in the Lower Eastern region, otherwise know as Ukambani, the former Vice President has been told.

He is currently considered the man calling shots in the region and whose decision the Kamba community will rely on when it comes to next year’s presidential race.

But former Nairobi Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke says that he has lost the power he once had in the region, which is currently estimated to have about 2 million votes.

Mueke, one of the point ment of Deputy President William Ruto in Ukambani, claims that the DP has succeeded in wooing the region and is now the man to beat there.

Mueke claims that Kalonzo’s thought that he is still in charge is because he is hardly on the ground, even as the former Vice President counts on the vote in his bid for the top seat.

“He’s in for a rude awakening this time round. We are delivering for the Deputy President. He may not have noticed because he’s not on the ground,” he told The Standard on Wednesday.

Mueke has been working alongside former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama, Nimrod Mbai of Kitui East, Vincent Munyaka (Machakos Town) and Vincent Musyoka (Mwala) to deliver Ukambani to Ruto.

Kalonzo has since made it clear that he will not support Ruto, saying that he is actually planning to stop him, with his allies on Wednesday announcing the same against ODM leader Raila Odinga, the other big presidential hopeful for 2022.

This is even as analysts point out that these two leaders badly need Kalonzo’s support, this being why they never attack him for long.

“Even if people fight him and he fights others, they seem to end their fights quickly,” political analyst Ishmael Nyaribo says.
