President Uhuru Kenyatta should retire together with Raila

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka says President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga should retire together.

Speaking during a Thika tour by One Kenya Alliance principals, Kalonzo said Kenyans respected the peace birthed from March 9, 2018 Uhuru-Raila handshake, but criticised Uhuru for supporting Raila’s presidential candidature. The Wiper leader said Kenya is a democratic country and should be led by a President from any part of the country.

Kalonzo was accompanied by ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi, who criticised those trying to woo OKA principals, saying they shall not be distracted.
In the same tour and in remarks seen as aimed at the ODM leader’s overtures, Musalia said the “sideshows” are proof other 2022 poll participants have acknowledged what they didn’t see before that OKA is not a pushover.

Mudavadi said, “sometimes the king is naked but nobody can tell the king that he is naked … tell Kenyans that some of these politicians are naked so that they make proper decisions. Mudavadi also revisited ODM leader Raila Odinga, who has defended his fifth jab at the presidency.

Raila yesterday dispelled the notion that he had used his last bullet. He said in the last election, he had instead used an arrow and that his final bullet is still in place. The former Prime Minister has hinted at working with Mudavadi again.

Speaking when he attended the burial of Mudavadi’s stepmother Mama Rosebella Jerono at Budira village in Vihiga, the ODM leader said the fact that they have taken different political paths in the past does not mean they cannot work together.

But speaking ahead of OKA’s Thika rally, Mudavadi said, “At this point in time we are moving as OKA and we shall not be distracted by sideshows
