Even before the dust from Musalia Mudavadi’s political earthquake comes down settling, the son of Mululu and his Sugoi counterpart have hit the ground running.
The two on Wednesday, took Baringo and Nakuru counties by storm, where they held their first-ever joint rallies since they agreed to work together.
It is a move that caused jitters inside the ruling Jubilee Party, with President Uhuru Kenyatta quickly summoning a section of Western Kenya MPs allied to the handshake for a meeting in the Statehouse to neutralize the aftermath tremors.
While ODM and Jubilee were strategizing on neutralizing Musalia’s effects, Kalonzo Musyoka was busy courting another principal Narc Kenya Party Leader Martha Karua into his OKA alliance.
The Wiper party boss has reassured Kenyans that he will race all the way to the tape and nobody will stop his course. However, Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has called on him to reconsider his moves and join Azimio camp, adding that he should be given the running mate slot by Raila.
Do you think Kalonzo should join Raila’s camp and join forces with his Nasa partner? Will this affect DP Ruto’s presidency? What about Kalonzo running all alone and joining forces with the winning side on a post-election deal? will the katikati trick favour him this time round?
