Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has now claimed that Wiper Democratic Movement party leader Kalonzo Musyoka could have been rewarded if he had teamed up with president Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy Dr William Ruto and formed government in 2013.
According to Kuria, Kalonzo could have been given a third of the government if the former vice-president could have agreed to join hands with the two leaders when they (Uhuru Kenyatta and Dr William Ruto) first came to office in their first term.
The Central Kenya Jubilee Member of Parliament questioned why Kalonzo had started blaming deputy president Dr William Ruto for taking half of the government in 2013.
In the vocal lawmaker's observation, Kalonzo was promised to be given a third of government if he were to accept to join Jubilee. However, Kalonzo turned down the offer.
He argued that if the Wiper chief had accepted the offer, he would have reduced Dr Ruto's 50% government share and that could have saved him of complaints.
"In 2013, we in Jubilee Coalition offered Kalonzo to join and take up a third (a whole 33%) of government. He refused. At least he should have accepted the offer and reduced William Ruto’s share," Read part of Kuria's Facebook post.
This comes amidst tirades directed to deputy president Dr William Ruto by the former vice-president Kalonzo Musyoka over succession politics.
Kalonzo has been jibing Dr Ruto due to the DP's overambitious nature. He claimed that he foresaw a situation whereby the second in command would be the leader of opposition in 2022.
The Wiper leader recently took exception with Dr Ruto for failing to obey his boss president Uhuru Kenyatta, citing the move by the DP to back an independent candidate in Msambweni constituency by-election.
