Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana who is also Wiper Chairman may, 21, 2018 urged Wiper party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka to do away with deal he had with ODM leader.
Kivutha in his statement analysed the county’s political future following President Uhuru Kenyatta -Raila Handshake. Prof Kibwana said Kalonzo should focus on being an independent leder and should not have anybody negotiate for him.
“We wish to ask Kalonzo that from now on, he should not have anybody negotiate for him. A handshake can be only between two people. Raila’s handshake is Raila’s handshake. This is said as I express my deepest respect for Raila. But now Kalonzo must define his own political trajectory post-2017,” Prof Kibwana said .
Prof Kibwana, who participated in negotiating a deal between kalonzo Musyoka and Mr Odinga ahead of last year’s general election, expressed his doubt about the future of National Super alliance (Nasa) following Raila’s Relationship with the Jubilee Party.
It was believed that as part of the deal, which was witnessed by US-based scholar Makau Mutua, Mr Odinga would back Mr Musyoka is his 2022 State House bid.
“We appreciate that the first handshake did change Kenya’s political environment. It was an act of courage and patriotism. But in my humble view, Kalonzo, Mudavadi and Wetang’ula must define their own future politics without reference to the flagship business of 2017. That per
iod is now closed,” Prof Kibwana said.
Kivutha added that Kalonzo should enter into coalitions with other voting blocs in the country and initiate negotiations with President Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto “and all other national leaders”.
“Let him do handshakes and heartshakes that will benefit us and Kenya,”Kivutha said.
