Kalonzo Makes Serious Claim, Alleges What's Been Happening in Uhuru's Government

Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has revived his attacks on President Uhuru Kenyatta's government, after years of being seen as closely working with him.

The former Vice President is among opposition leaders who have been working with the President since his 2018 truce with ODM boss Raila Odinga, who doubles up as the leader of the opposition wing.

But he on Monday revived what they used to do before the handshake, where they had made it a habit to bash the President and accuse his government of contributing to the worsening graft levels in Kenya.

The leader said that even some top state officials have been actively involved in the same, and have been stealing billions from the taxpayer and sharing them with some big persons in government.

"The corruption levels witnessed in this country between 2013 and 2017 were unprecedented. We even saw people stealing from parastatals and taking money in billions to those who have shared the government between them at a ratio of 50-50," he said when held his fellow OKA chiefs to Makueni.

By people who have shared the government half by half, he seems to have been refering to Uhuru and his deputy William Ruto, who are reported to have equally shared the government during their first term.

He also drummed up support for the OKA coalition, which is keen in forming the next government, saying that among its top priorities when it captures power will be slaying the graft menace once and for all.

"If OKA takes over, we will see to it that graft ends immediately," added the leader, one of the four OKA principals who, just like all the others, has declared interest in flying the alliance's flag next year.

He said that their alliance will keep its campaign promises, as his colleagues urged Kenyans to register as voters in preparation for the elections.

His remarks come as an apparent U-turn on Uhuru considering that he has been silent on the government's wrongs since 2018, resulting in him and Raila being bashed for abandoning the opposition to please Uhuru for possible endorsement next year.
