Kalonzo Musyoka Announces Support for Uhuru Kenyatta's 3rd Term as President
Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, on Friday, announced that he was ready to support President Uhuru Kenyatta's bid for a third term in office.
During a meeting of Kamba leaders in Machakos County, Kalonzo stated that the constitutional review process was unstoppable and called on leaders from other communities to support the president.
"Let’s come together with other communities and help our brother Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta. If he says after the new Constitution that he wants to proceed I will support him," he declared.
The Wiper leader also addressed the issue of the winner-takes-it-all after elections and the ripple effect it had of balkanizing the nation.
According to him, there was a need to expand the Executive in order to make Kenya an all-inclusive state once and for all.
Kalonzo claimed that there was a general consensus among opposition political parties to team up with President Uhuru to oversee the review exercise.
“I foresee a situation where Wiper Democratic Movement will go into coalition with Jubilee, ODM, ANC, Ford Kenya and form one indivisible political juggernaut that will produce the next Prime Minister under a new Constitution, " he addressed.
Kajiado Central MP Memusi Kanchor on his part stated that the leader who will take over from President Uhuru would not come far from Kalonzo, Raila or other leaders in the National Super Alliance (NASA).
Former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama was of the view that the constitution needed to be amended so as to create a Kenya where freedom was not for one person but for everyone.
At the same time, Kalonzo downplayed a brewing rebellion instigated by Governors Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni), Alfred Mutua (Machakos) and Charity Ngilu (Kitui), who did not attend the function.
