In order to secure his political future, former Deputy President Kalonzo Musyoka has been asked by a section of elders from Machakos county to cross over to the Jubilee Party.
The elders who also double as Mau Mau Veterans Association’s members pleaded with Kalonzo to reconsider his place in the opposition and work with the ruling government where there is future for him.
Through a press statement released on Wednesday, the elders through the Mau Mau Veterans Association chairman Johnstone Kitili, categorically stated that the Ukambani Kingpin was being misused by the ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
“Opposition politics may derail development in Ukambani region, especially in efforts to tackle drought,” Johnstone Kitili.
They further thanked him for not participating in the illegal “swearing in Ceremony” that was conducted last month and urged him to switch camps completely for the betterment of the Ukambani region.
“We thank Kalonzo for accepting the elders’ advice of not taking an oath as the People’s Deputy President together with Raila on January 30……We love our son Kalonzo but we want him to work with Uhuru. He was initially doing well politically but we do not understand what went wrong.” Kitili added.
