  • Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana and Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior have urged former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka to reject President Uhuru Kenyatta’s new job offer.

    The Wiper Party officials claimed that the job as Kenya’s peace envoy will make Kalonzo an errand boy for the president.

    Kivutha, who is the Wiper Party Chairman, faulted the party leader’s declaration, arguing that it was not well thought out and questioned Kalonzo’s commitment to his bid for State House.

    "Yuyu mutongoi wa andu atwika mundu wa mukono, namo andu ala ma ivalo mamutumie mesani ya nthi makatwika kyau? (When a leader of the people becomes an errand boy, what becomes of the followers who have elevated him to the negotiation table)?" reads his post on social media.

    On Friday, he had appealed to Uhuru to elevate the former VP to the status of his Deputy William Ruto or ODM leader Raila Odinga.

    The former VP’s allies also raised concerns that Kalonzo did not consult them before announcing his new found relationship with President Kenyatta.

    Mutula Kilonzo Junior stated that Musyoka should have clarified what benefits his alliance with President Kenyatta will bring to the Kamba community in order to avoid any misunderstandings.

    The President cemented his good relationship with the wiper party leader during the burial of Kalonzo’s father, Mzee Peter Mairu on Friday, November 10.

    Once the appointment materialises, Kalonzo shall become Kenya's special envoy to mediate in conflicts locally as well as outside the country where President Kenyatta's administration may be required to intervene.

    My brother Kalonzo should help us to bring the country together and peace for all Kenyans and even internationally. Every leader has something to contribute. All we need is to give each other space and respect one another!” stated President Kenyatta in his address to mourners.
