Political analyst Danstan Omari has sensationally claimed that Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka does not have the financial muscles to engage in serious political battles.
Speaking on K24 on Wednesday, May 11, Omari alleged that since Kalonzo joined politics, he has been relying on funding from other leaders for survival.
According to Omari, the Wiper leader is currently depending on Baringo Senator Gideon Moi and Mike Sonko for financial support without which he cannot politically survive.
“Kalonzo seems not to be in control, when you look at his financial resources, can he survive alone? Previously he survived through Moi then Johnstone Muthama. Now he is depending on Gideon Moi and if not, Sonko.” Omari said.
Omari opines that without strong financial resources one can not compete with the likes of Deputy President William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
“The inadequacy of funds makes Kalonzo desperate and makes him not have any direction to his people,” Omari.
Sentiments by the political analyst come after Kalonzo made a u-turn on his earlier threats not to attend the interviews on selecting the presidential running mate for Raila Odinga.
Reports later surfaced alleging that President Uhuru might have called the Wiper leader and influenced him to change his mind.
According to Omari, President Uhuru might have threatened to withdraw all financial support to the Wiper leader forcing him to attend even after vowing not to attend.
“I’m sure the President told Gideon Moi to stop funding Wiper unless Kalonzo went for the interview. The members of Wiper need to understand that their general does not have the artillery to fight politics.” Omari alleged.
