Good morning,

Recently, Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has been making political moves geared towards mounting a formidable challenge to dethrone President William Ruto in 2027.

The former VP over the weekend exuded confidence that has what it takes to end Ruto’s term in 2027 as he argued that he is the only way to save Kenyans from the high cost of living.

He stated that the high taxes imposed by the Kenya Kwanza government have made the situation worse and criticized the affordable housing project for being full of contradiction of public land management.

On Monday, Kalonzo stated that Azimio leaders are prepared to join doctors in street protests in support of their demands if the Kenya Kwanza government cannot address their grievances.

He also claimed there was a plot by the Kenya Kwanza administration to rig the 2027 General Election by disregarding the implementation of the National Dialogue Committee (NADCO) report.

Do you think Kalonzo has what it takes to dethrone Ruto in 2027? And do you think there is a plan by the Kenya Kwanza administration to rig the next elections?
