Why Kalonzo's Message to Uhuru Has Caused Anger

Kalonzo's message to President Uhuru Kenyatta seems to have caused anger among the allies.

Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka

Party chairman Kivutha Kibwana criticised the party leader’s declaration, asserting it was not well thought out and challenged Mr Musyoka’s commitment to his bid for the presidency.

Errand boy remarks

"When a leader of the people becomes an errand boy, what becomes of the followers who have elevated him to the negotiation table?" read part of a statement he published on social media.

Prof Kibwana had called on President Kenyatta to elevate Mr Musyoka to the status of DP William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga, arguing that the handshake was meant to benefit all Kenyans-and, not individuals.

According to the Makueni governor Kalonzo ought to have put his house on order first.

On several occasions, governor Kibwana asked Mr Musyoka to reign on disrespectful Wiper politicians lest they undermine his quest for succeeding President Kenyatta.

What benefits are there

Prof Kibwana’s apprehensions stem from Mr Musyoka’s plausible failure to put the interests of the community first in his newfound friendship with President Kenyatta, as well as his glaring political infirmity in the wake of insubordination exhibited by some of his lieutenants.

The Makueni governor said that Mr Musyoka should have declared what the Kamba community stands to gain from his deal with President Kenyatta before declaring his political move.
