Wipers Party Boss Kalonzo Musyoka Narrates How He Helped Uhuru Kenyatta To Gain Top Seat

Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has now revealed that he played a significant role in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s appointment as Deputy Prime Minister during Mwai Kibaki’s second term in office.

Kalonzo was speaking at the Safari Park Hotel, where OKA principals were meeting with the Mt Kenya Foundation.

"I will let you know some reality which I'm saying interestingly freely, It was me who persuaded Mzee Kibaki to delegate President Uhuru the appointee head administrator," Kalonzo said. 

As per Kalonzo, given the political strains at that point, the then-head of state, Kibaki, was reluctant to select one more Kikuyu to a high office. 

"Since Mzee Kibaki was a patriot, he let me know Vice President, you need me to name another Kikuyu?" Kalonzo thought back. 

"Since you recall the Kofi Anna Talks when Raila delegated Mudavadi… and afterward I was in PNU collusion with Kibaki… I told him, yes! What's more, Uhuru turned into the agent executive and the priest for exchange, and ultimately, the Minister for Finance," Kalonzo added. 

The Wiper chief, who is additionally a possibility for president in 2022, asserted, but gently, that through his feedback, Uhuru had the option to fabricate the muscle to run for president as he advanced through different government positions. 

"I think he owes me one, simply a light touch," Kalonzo added.
