What One Of Raila's Rift Valley Pointmen Was Spotted Doing With Kalonzo On Monday

Things have taken an interesting turn after one of ODM leader Raila Odinga's Rift Valley allies was spotted with his rivals and 2022 opponents in the Lower Eastern region.

Kajiado Governor Joseph Ole Lenku was among the leaders who accompanied the OKA brigade to Ukambani for the campaigns of Eisho Mwaiwa, the Wiper party's candidate in the Nguu-Musumba Ward race.

Interestingly, the county boss is one of the leaders Raila is counting on to give him the Maa vote in his presidential bid next year, and he has openly stated that he is in Raila's corner.

There are also reports that he is one of Raila's new pointmen in the larger Rift Valley region, alongside Elgeyo Marakwet governor Alex Tolgos and Nakuru governor Lee Kinyanjui.

The others are Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina, Narok North MP Moitalel Ole Kenta, and Uasin Gishu politician Kipkorir Menjo, according to The Star.

However, Lenku was present in Ukambani on Monday with Kalonzo, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, Ford Kenya's Moses Wetangula, and former Cabinet Minister Cyrus Jirongo.

They have made it clear that they will fight to the bitter end, reportedly rejecting President Uhuru Kenyatta's attempts to re-enlist their support for Raila.
