Suspended Kanu secretary general Nick Salat has called upon Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to stop demanding support of the Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga in his 2027 presidential bid since it will not happen.
Kalonzo in his past addresses affirmed that he will be eyeing the presidency come 2027 after his camp, the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance, lost the presidency to President William Ruto during the August 9th polls.
In an Exclusive interview with the Nation on Sunday, Salat said that it is time for Kalonzo to chart his own political path, saying that the Ukambani kingpin and who delivered good votes to the Azimio basket should ask himself why Raila has urged his people to work with the government of the day.
Salat while commenting on Ruto's Nyanza visit, said that the 2027 polls might be a different ball-game which might change the political landscape of the country than never seen before, thanks to Ruto's aggressiveness to bring everyone on board.
"I don’t see a situation where Raila will support Kalonzo, not anytime soon. I was in Nyanza in October and I can tell there is fatigue. The way the current President is aggressive and has been visiting Nyanza, it would change the dimensions of how the politics of the region plays out."
Salat also argued that for Kalonzo to redeem himself following Raila's move to urge his team to embrace Ruto, he should also join Ruto's government to build his political muscles.
