RAILA'S Huge Blow as KALONZO could be heading to RUTO’s camp

Another blow to <a class=Raila as probe demands are rejected"/>

Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka could just be toying with ODM Leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta ahead of the August polls.

This is after it emerged that he may be headed to join Deputy President William Ruto just like his OKA friends Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) and Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya).

Speaking at various stops in Murang’a County, the Kenya Kwanza team hinted that plans were underway to woo Kalonzo to their side.

Led by Musalia Mudavadi, the Kenya Kwanza team revealed there were efforts to reach out to Kalonzo to join their wing, saying they had supported Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga for “far too long” with no tangible results.

Mudavadi said the alliance was targeting a landslide win in the August poll by garnering at least 70 percent in the first round.

 “We are assured of winning the poll by 10.00 am but with Kalonzo on board, we shall have finished the business by 9:00 am,” he said.

Speaking at Kimorori ground in the Maragua constituency, Mudavadi urged Kalonzo to join their camp so that they can walk the political journey together.

He said Raila is such a burden to carry around and that’s why they cannot support him.

“We carried him on our shoulders in 2013 and 2017 but we got tired and cannot do it this time around,” said Mudavadi.

He maintained that Raila was a Government Project to be manipulated by his political masters were he to find himself at State House.

Ruto on his part said Kenya Kwanza is a formidable force, which cannot be easily shaken, exuding confidence that the formation will form the next government.
