‘We will force you into Presidency’ – Wavinya tells Kalonzo
Written by Inka FM on 15 January 2024
Machakos Governor Wavinya Ndeti has told Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to brace himself for the presidential race in 2027.
Speaking on Sunday, January 14, 2024, Ndeti said politicians allied to the Wiper leader and the Kamba community will ensure that he clinches the top seat in the 2027 General Elections.
“We have already told you (Kalonzo). We are not requesting you for the Presidential seat. We shall force you there. We are already decided,” Ndeti said amidst cheers.
Ndeti also urged Kalonzo to stop campaigning in the Kamba region and focus on other parts of the country to increase his support ahead of 2027.
“Tour the country (Kenya). Leave Ukambani (to us). Don’t worry about us in Ukambani. We are good and we know ourselves,” she added.
Kalonzo for president
This comes days after Kalonzo declared that he will be on the ballot in the 2027 General Election to challenge President William Ruto for the top seat.
“Kenyans should, by now, be knowing who President Ruto’s main challenger in 2027 is. I am the one. Even the president himself announced my bid for the top seat recently,” Kalonzo stated.
The Wiper party leader termed the 2027 Presidential race as an exciting one, especially if his ally Raila Odinga decides to give it another try and go for the top seat.
“Nothing will stop me, not even Azimio member parties fielding candidates. Even if the presidential race is crowded I will be in there. If Raila decides to vie for the presidency, it will be an exciting race. In 2022 I decided not to vie in favour of Raila but I don’t expect any payback from him,” he added.
Kalonzo has supported Raila for the top seat in the last three general elections, two times being his running mate.
