Today Makueni County Governor Kivutha Kibwana attended a South Eastern Kenya meeting with UDA Party Chairman Johnstone Muthama. In what might seem as alienating Kalonzo further from what has traditionally been his stronghold, the two met key leaders from Ukambani. On top of their agenda as divulged by Kivutha Kibwana was: how to be part of the next government, how to register more voters and revamping economy of the region.
It is part of being part of the next government that will raise eyebrows. Johnstone Muthama has been a great supporter of William Ruto and was instrumental in creating UDA Party of which he is the chairman. On his part, Kivutha Kibwana has declared that he will be running for president and has been working closely with Martha Karua and Mukhisa Kituyi.
If the two leaders from Ukambani agree to work together in forming the next government, then one of them will have to give in. In the last few months, Johnstone Muthama has been conspicuously missing from UDA countrywide rallies. Could he be planning to defect or is he still loyal to DP Ruto? If Kivutha and Muthama work together, will Kalonzo get any substantial votes from his backyard?
