Suspended The head of the Wiper party, Kalonzo Musyoka, has been urged by Kanu Secretary General Nick Salat to cease requesting that Raila, a former prime minister, support his campaign for the presidency in 2027 since he knows it won't happen.
In previous speeches, Kalonzo declared that he will run for president in 2027 after his party, the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance, lost the election to President William Ruto on August 9.
Salat stated in an Exclusive interview with the Nation on Sunday that it is time for Kalonzo to choose his own political path. He added that the Ukambani kingpin, who gave good votes to the Azimio basket, should consider why Raila has urged his supporters to cooperate with the current administration.
Regarding Ruto's visit to Nyanza, Salat stated that due to Ruto's aggression in enlisting everyone's support, the elections in 2027 may be different and result in a political landscape transformation that has never been witnessed before in the nation.
"No time soon, in my opinion, will Raila show support for Kalonzo. I noticed a weariness when I visited Nyanza in October. The aggressive nature of the present President and his visits to Nyanza could alter the dynamics of how the region's politics unfold."
Salat further claimed that Kalonzo should join Ruto's cabinet in order to hone his political skills in order to atone for his actions following Raila's decision to urge his team to support Ruto.
