Kivutha Kibwana, the former governor for Makueni county has come out to ask the Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to leave the Azimio One Kenya Alliance coalition immediately. Kibwana was reacting to Kalonzo's remarks where he asked president William Ruto to notify him if he was planning to visit Machakos county.
"I hear William Ruto is coming to Machakos tomorrow, he should be told it's so disrespectful to visit one's homestead without the owner's consent," Kalonzo was quoted as saying by the newspaper.
This statement caught the attention of Kivutha Kibwana who advised the Wiper leader to consult with his community on his next move. The former governor told Kalonzo that Raila is not yet ready to retire from the coalition and will therefore not have any chance of leading the coalition.
""I heard Kalonzo was to make a grand statement. Since 2004 when he became regional kingship, he has, like Chief Kasina of colonial times, used his position to largely lobby for self, family & a few friends. SKM's Damascus moment would involve him suspending AZIMIO membership. After that he would then consult his community on new political move. Baba is not about to retire. His troops will dig in. Even if he was to say SKM tosha, would Baba's voters embrace Kalonzo? Minus careful planning, Kambas will only be liberated upon SKM's political departure," Kiibwana said.
