Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka

Wiper party leader Klonzo Musyoka claims to have used his ‘diplomatic skills” honed over the years as a peace ambassador to persuade the then bitter rivals, President Uhuru Kenyatta and Odinga Odinga into a “handshake”

By The Weekly Vision Online

Whoever said that politicians are distant cousins of sharks and crocodiles may have had a point considering the body language both species exhibit. It’s just the other day when Wiper leader and One Kenya Alliance (OKA) co-principal Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka was heard talking about “never supporting Raila Odinga as a presidential candidate ever again”! He even went further to assert that he would be a “fool” to back Mr Odinga.

But the man from Tseikuru in Kitui County appears to have eaten back his own words, he has beaten a hasty retreat to eat humble pie. He even claims to have used his ‘diplomatic skills” honed over the years as a peace ambassador and persuaded the then bitter rivals, President Uhuru Kenyatta and Odinga Odinga to a “handshake”. This is contrary to known facts that it was former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta, mother of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga’s wife Mama Ida Odinga who brought the two men together.

It’s not clear why Mr Kalonzo who has been howling in a desperate rage to the effect that OKA was a “force to reckon with ” and that it will defeat the two front runners, Raila Odinga and William Ruto in the presidential race has suddenly made an about-turn

It’s not clear why Mr Kalonzo who has been howling in a desperate rage to the effect that OKA was a “force to reckon with ” and that it will defeat the two front runners, Raila Odinga and William Ruto in the presidential race has suddenly made an about-turn like a prodigal son who decides it’s better to go back home instead of the uncertain future in the wilderness! This is devastating news for Mr Kalonzo’s supporters in Ukambani and the greater eastern region.

Perhaps Kalonzo Musyoka had little choice except to play ball, with rebel governors in Machakos, Makueni and Kitui already drumming support for Azmio, what else could the man do? Like a shark or crocodile, animals that appear to suffer memory lapses, Mr Kalonzo has a history of speaking from both sides of his mouth blowing hot and cold! Having vowed to go all the way to the ballot, the long-serving MP and former vice president is turning out to be the political clown of the 21st century!

His departure will leave OKA a battered empty shell that can only sink to the bottom of the ocean. Gideon Moi of KANU is already on board the Azmio flagship. Iron lady Martha Karau of NARC and Cyrus Jirongo have little political capital worth writing home about! OKA will join the long list of political party alliances with the shortest lifespan ever
