The Musalia Mudavadi, Gideon Moi and Moses Wetangula led outfit leaves little for “Mr Watermelon”
The recent announcement by Wiper Democratic Movement that it is quitting “NASA” was for many discerning political watchers too little too late. Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has been flip-flopping, blowing hot and cold at the same time over the fate of the NASA outfit that almost drove President Uhuru Kenyatta out of town in the 2017 presidential elections.
That Kalonzo Musyoka has been talking of an outfit that has long been “dead and buried” is both comical and politically absurd. Many have wondered why Musyoka has been looking for the “living among the dead”. NASA, many have reminded him “died” on March 9 2018, when its captain abandoned ship, and boarded MV Jubilee warmly received with a hearty “handshake” by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Kalonzo Musyoka says he’s in OKA for the long haul, where he hopes to be the captain in the 2022 presidential duel, he seems to be pushing his luck beyond the capacity of his “political angels”
Kalonzo says he is in Kenya One Alliance, perhaps a calculated move so as to present the third force behind that of Raila Odinga and William Ruto, where he hopes to be the captain in the 2022 duel, he seems to be pushing his luck beyond the capacity of his “political angels”.
Even in Kenya One, faced with the likely possibility of ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi and KANU’s Gideon Moi becoming front runners, the flip-flopping son of Tseikuru may again be forced to bolt out than play second fiddle. Knowing well that going it alone in today’s Kenya is “political suicide.” Not unless he is working for a hidden hand.
On running out of options the former vice president could be sending out an “olive branch” to his long-time ally Raila Odinga who may still need Kalonzo as a “running-mate” like he did in 2017, but times have dramatically changed.
Flip flop into the political wilderness and simply hope for the best as Wiper alone would be confined to where it has always belonged, the Ukambani home-turf because that is the reality of Kenya’s ethnic driven politics.
