What Next for Kalonzo After Ukambani Mps Endorse Raila for Presidency

Former prime minister Raila Odinga was today endorsed by quite a huge number of governors from across the country in the Azimio La Umoja campaign.

Among the governors were the three counties bosses from Ukambani region Kitui, Machakos and Makueni.

This has raised speculations on what next for Ukambani kingpin and Wiper's party leader Kalonzo Musyoka who is currently among the principals of One Kenya Alliance (OKA) where they plan to field a candidate for presidency come August 9 general elections.

This is because for Kalonzo not having a single governor from his region means his relevance and significance in Ukambani might have deteriorated making it hard for him to command support there.

It is clear and evident that Kalonzo might be forced to back away from OKA if at all he wants to to get enough support from his people and work with Raila's Azimio La Umoja ahead of the forthcoming elections.

However,it is not yet clear whether the former vice president might consider going back to support Raila's presidential bid.
