Kalonzo Musyoka Refutes Reports of State House Meeting with Ruto


Amid swirling rumors and reports of political defection, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka took a firm stance on Thursday, February 9, refuting claims that his party would be the next to visit State House after Jubilee and ODM rebel MPs. During the Azimio Parliamentary Group meeting, Kalonzo spoke out against the charm offensive launched by Deputy President William Ruto, calling it an attempt to bypass party structures.

“No Such Plans”: Wiper Leader Debunks State House Rumors

Kalonzo made it clear that a section of Wiper leaders had been invited to State House, but they politely declined the invitation. He called out Ruto for bypassing party structures in his meetings with Azimio leaders and advised their members to inform their party leaders in advance.

The Wiper leader also called for tolerance, offering to mediate between Lang’ata Member of Parliament Phelix Odiwuor and the Azimio faction. He expressed concern for Jalang’o’s state of mind and directed his party to extend an olive branch to those who may have strayed.

Raila Demands Resignations

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, on the other hand, took a hard-line stance, calling on Jalang’o and other ODM MPs who visited Ruto at State House to resign and seek a fresh mandate from the electorate. The development came amid tensions within the opposition camp and fears of further political defection.

A Call for Unity and Tolerance

As the political landscape continues to shift, Kalonzo’s call for tolerance and mediation offers a glimmer of hope for unity within the opposition ranks. With elections on the horizon, the Wiper leader’s stance serves as a reminder that political differences can be set aside for the greater good of the nation.
