Ever seen that person that is just so hard to hate? Kalonzo Musyoka is one such man. As much as people have at times referred to him as a watermelon and a coward, the man from Tseikuru is surely still a darling of money.
This was confirmed today during his late fathers burial with many leaders seemingly praising him for his great personality.
It seems like Kalonzo’s journey to statehouse is not dead after all after leaders led by senate majority leader told him to focus on the main prize and what lies ahead.
“Kalonzo’s journey is not over,” Kipchumba Murkomen said.
Murkomen added that every Kenyan, regardless of which part of Kenya they come from, can lead the country.
Speakers urged Kalonzo to keep his eye on the House on the hill, raising questions on the 2022 succession plan. President Uhuru Kenyatta, who attended the Tseikuru funeral in Kitui North, recently said he will shock Kenyans with his choice of successor.
Kalonzo on the other hand said that at his age, he cannot afford to gamble in politics. Kalonzo has been in the political cold since 2013. In the previous two general elections, the former VP was the running mate to opposition Chief Raila Odinga and in both instances, they lost to the duo of Uhuru and Ruto.
Kalonzo said that he was ready to be President Uhuru Kenyatta’s right hand man. A move that has been seen by many as a way to make a political comeback.
Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s father the late Peter Mairu was being laid to rest in Tseikuru, Kitui County. President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto and Opposition leader Raila Odinga were among leaders attending the funeral.
The funeral service at Tseikuru Baraza park brought together leaders from both sides of the political divide in the country.
Mr Kenyatta landed at Tseikuru airstrip at 1pm, followed shortly by Mr Odinga.
National Super Alliance leader Musalia Mudavadi, Senators James Orengo, Mutula Kilonzo, Kipchumba Murkomen, Governors Charity Ngilu, Alfred Mutua, Kivutha Kibwana, Granton Samboja, among leaders are also at the funeral.
Mr Ruto who had arrived earlier, several cabinet secretaries, dozens of MPs & senators were among leaders present.
Do you believe that Kalonzo can make it to the country’s top most office?
