  • Makueni Governor, Kivutha Kibwana, derided Kalonzo Musyoka's newly found alliance with Baringo Senator, Gideon Moi.

    The two have been spotted at various functions, with Kalonzo going on to confirm that former president Daniel Arap Moi had urged him to work with his son.

    However, Governor Kibwana maintained that Kalonzo had lost his way, adding that partnering with the KANU party chair was a form of betrayal.

    "Why would he abandon Muungano to choose a party that used to mistreat Kenyans when they wanted to change?" Kibwana told Daily Nation reporters after a burial at Kambu in Kibwezi East constituency on Saturday.

    The two Ukambani leaders have been at loggerheads, with Kibwana constantly taunting the Wiper party leader, maintaining that his time was up, having done little to help the region during his tenure as vice president.

    “His time has elapsed. He was Vice President, what did he do? So, these people saying Kalonzo will be the next president should know the position belongs to no one,” Kibwana disclosed.

    The governor went on to flex his new-found political clout, adding that his victory was the only win for the Wiper party that had secured a governor's seat.

    Kalonzo on his part maintained that he was focused on what was best for the country as well as the people of Ukamabani in general.

    “When I visited Mzee Moi accompanied by Senator Wambua and my son Kennedy, Mzee Moi told me to work with Senator Moi and President Uhuru Kenyatta," Kalonzo affirmed.

    Senator Moi had fueled the rumours of their intended union while speaking at a function held in Kitui, during which he heaped enormous praise on Kalonzo.

    “Kalonzo you are like-minded, a man of integrity and I respect you for that and those are the people we can work together,” said Senator Moi.

    Governor Kibwana reiterated that he was the one responsible for ensuring that Kalonzo seured the running mate slot ahead of Musalia Mudavadi who was eyeing the spot, adding that Kalonzo's latest move to partner with a party which had a past littered in controversy would prove costly.
