Kalonzo Swings Into The Campaign Trail With Jirongo, Wanjigi And Gideon Moi On His Side

Wiper Democratic Movement Party leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka on Thursday kicked off his presidential campaigns with rallies in Kabati, Kitui County.

Kalonzo was accompanied by Cyrus Jirongo and Jimmy Wanjigi of ODM. There was also Kalonzo' s remaining ally in the One Kenya Alliance of KANU Gideon Kipsiele Moi.

" I think the jam has been removed and we can now start a strong campaign, " said Kalonzo Musyoka referring to the departure of Musalia Mudavadi from the OKA coalition.

Mudavadi' s departure will also be a relief to the remaining OKA Heads considering that much of the pressure to elect a presidential candidate was over the Musyoka- Mudavadi supremacy.

Political analysts have been trying to unravel Mudavadi' s wisdom of withdrawing from the DPs camp.

For William Ruto, it was a huge advantage as for the first time he had a nationalist politician collaborating with his campaign team.

Meanwhile, Kalonzo now has the opportunity to become the most sought after politician in the current political arena.

In other news, a prominent political analyst has appeared on social media after Deputy President William Ruto became restless and punished him.

Substone Osoro who describes himself as a political analyst, footballer and journalist, on Thursday night signed up for Twitter and cried after DP Ruto blocked him.

The commentator, who has always supported Raila Odinga' s United Nations Declaration, said he did nothing wrong with DP Ruto but was stopped.

" I will not offend him (I did not offend him), " he tweeted and shared a screenshot showing DP Ruto blocking him.


Other Kenyans also joined Osoro in the comments section and shared their experience of restraint.
