The Kitui East Member of Parliament, Nimrod Mbai has asked the Ukambani Kingpin and Wiper party leader Hon.Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka to join forces with deputy president William Ruto if he wishes to form the next government.
Speaking during an interview on Radio Citizen on Wednesday night, the ruling Jubilee Party ally threw his weight behind Kalonzo, terming him as the best Kamba political kingpin.
“Kalonzo remains our leader in Ukambani whom we admire and respect. He is an experienced veteran politician who is not to be ignored in the region’s politics,”Mbai said.
The Kitui East lawmaker however said that despite being better placed for the Ukambani Kingpin position than rival Alfred Mutua, Kalonzo ought to use his influence to ensure that his supporters are included in the next government by joining hands with Jubilee, which he said is sure of forming the next government.
According to the lawmaker, Kalonzo should consider joining hands with Deputy President William Ruto whom he said is certainly headed for the top post after the polls.
“We trust him but he has to ensure that we are not left out of the government this time round. He should join hands with the Deputy President whose presidency is almost assured come 2022,” Mbai noted.
The Wiper party boss recent announced intentions of transforming the party into One Kenya Movement (OKM) in preparation for the coming 2022 general elections.
