(Uhuru had negotiated separately with Kalonzo and handed him the DP position. This was probably based on intelligence reports on the true situation on the ground)
A close ally of Raila who sought anonymity disclosed that Raila vehemently refused to accept Kalonzo. He told Uhuru that kama ni Mkamba, he would prefer Mama Ngilu as the DP, but never Kalonzo.
The plan B that Uhuru went for was deciding to go for either Peter Kenneth or Martha Karua. And that is where things are stuck.
So, from the look of things Raila said he didn't want Kalonzo taking a risk of loosing at least 2 million vote
With Kalonzo out of the picture, will this translate to a direct ticket for William Samoei Ruto to statehouse?
