I was misquoted – Kalonzo’s U-turn on support for Uhuru’s 3rd term

Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has made an about-turn on his support for President Uhuru Kenyatta to remain in government after his term ends in 2022.

After two days of being criticised, Musyoka on Sunday claimed that he had been misquoted but said he would work with President Kenyatta in forming the next government.

I made it very plain but some people misquoted me. When I say the next government, clearly, am going to work for it,” the Wiper Leader said.

Third Term

He said his support for the head of state did not necessarily mean that he wanted Kenyatta to have a third term as President.

When I say I mean it. When I said I have forgiven my brother Uhuru, I meant it but I did not say President Uhuru Kenyata should have a third term,” he added while speaking a funeral at Kiunduani, Makindu in Makueni county.

The former Vice President restated his support for a constitiutional referendum that will enhance inclusivity in government.

The speech in Makindu was in sharp contrast to another one he had made on Friday at Komarock.

"I’m ready to support constitutional amendments that will see Uhuru stay in government extended even after his term ends in 2022," he said on Friday.

On Sunday, Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua issued a press statement sassing Musyoka was not fit to be President because he has no firm stand.
