Could This Be Kalonzo's Next Move Soon?

Kenya will conduct its general elections on 9th August this year. All politicians interested in different positions have started their campaigns early in a bid to get support from citizens. Many people including children are interested in the presidential race. This is because President Uhuru Kenyatta will be exiting office after completing his two terms. Those interested to succeed include his current Deputy President William Samoei Ruto, the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Wiper Party leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka and many others.

It should be remembered that Kalonzo, Gideon Moi, Musalia Mudavadi, and Moses Wetangula were in One Kenya Alliance(OKA) but Mudavadi and Wetangula decided to join United Democratic Alliance UDA that is headed by Ruto. Already the DP is enjoying the relationship with the Amani National Congress leader(Musalia Mudavadi) as they are campaigning together in central currently.

At the same time, Musyoka and Moi today were in Kabati Kitui County whereby a multitude of people welcomed them.

In my opinion, the Wiper Party leader might soon opt to support Odinga for the presidency. This is due to the fact that nearly all the political leaders including Charity Ngilu(Kitui governor), Alfred Mutual(Machakos), and others from the Eastern region are backing the Azimio La Umoja that is headed by Odinga.

Lastly, he knows that if he goes ahead and vies for the presidential post he might lose. As a political legend because he has been in politics for more than 30 years he is likely to join Raila. Remember that all signs indicate that even the outgoing President wants the ODM Chief to become Kenya's fifth Head of State. Kalonzo all tries to be in government and this time he won't miss it.

That is my honest opinion. My dear readers, what are your thoughts concerning this topic? Kindly drop them down here for more interactions with other people.
