Kalonzo breaks down in tears after Raila mentioned his sick wife [Video]

Kalonzo wept after Raila spoke of the attack on the Wiper leader's home.

The press conference was called by the four NASA principals Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula aimed at assuring their supporters that the coalition was intact and they remained united.

Speaking shortly after Musyoka made his speech, Odinga offered his encouragement to the Wiper leader after the attack on his home in Karen early Wednesday morning.

Police later confirmed that a grenade attack occurred at Musyoka's home and recovered a live bullet and a stun grenade which they said was non-lethal.

"Pole to my brother Stephen Kalonzo for the attack at his compound against his family. My brother here has got a sick wife who is ambulant in the house. Imagine the kind of shock such a person would receive when a grenade is thrown into the compound, and bullets are fired," Odinga said during the presser.

It is at this time that an emotional Musyoka who was standing next to Odinga took out his handkerchief from his pocket and wept.

Rumours had been rife especially by Kenyans on social media who had said the coalition was dead after Musyoka, Mudavadi and Wetangula skipped Odinga's swearing-in as the "People's President" on Tuesday, January 30th before millions at the historic Uhuru Park grounds.

The three principals later sent a message to their supporters hours after they missed Raila Odinga's swearing-in at Uhuru Park.

In a statement signed by the three, the principals said they were unable to assemble today as earlier planned due to circumstances beyond their comprehension and control.
