Kalonzo Musyoka, the head of the Wiper party, has denied reports that he reached out to President-elect William Ruto.
According to Kalonzo, those spreading the rumors online have ulterior motives.
At the appropriate moment, he stated, he would meet Ruto face to face, but only after first conferring with Wiper and Azimio.
“If I want to meet him, I will do it openly after meeting with Azimio and Wiper members. We forgive you, we have every reason to forgive each other as we lay to rest mama Elizabeth,” Kalonzo said.
Saturday, during a funeral at Mukalala village in Yatta, Machakos County, the former vice president gave a speech to the crowd of mourners.
He extended his congratulations to Ruto, saying, “They respect him.”
