The going is getting tough for Kalonzo Musyoka. The former vice president is seemingly coming to terms that he might never become the president of this nation.
When attending Moses Wetangula mock presidential nomination, Kalonzo cut a tired figure. He even sent some signals to his once political rivals. He sensationally claimed Wetangula gave him Sh 500 for campaigns. It was like a plea to William Ruto, ‘Please come for me with a wheelbarrow full of money.’
Now Kalonzo has come out in the open and declared he is available for William Ruto. He has even made a public announcement that whoever sees Ruto to tell him that he’s readily available.
This comes at a time when he has said he would be willing to deputize Raila once again. Political pundits see this as a move of Kalonzo shortchanging Musalia Mudavadi. There was talk that Raila was seeing Mudavadi as potential running mate. Kalonzo knows that if it happens the best he can do is become Kitui senator. We can’t put that past Kalonzo, he once ran to be Kibaki’s vice president at a time the country was debating about authenticity of election results.
Kalonzo might have taken a bit too long to seduce Raila and Ruto. The two are eyeing vote rich Mt Kenya with Western voting block as a backup.
