Kalonzo pockets KSh 3 billion to support Raila’s last presidential attempt

by Enock Ndayala

Outspoken Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has sensationally claimed that Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has been paid KSh 3 billion to support ODM leader Raila Odinga’s presumably last presidential attempt.

In a statement posted on Wednesday, May 25, the Chama Cha Kazi (CCM) party leader claimed that the former vice president got the second-largest share someone has ever received in the country to agree to a certain political position.

“Transfer fee….KSh 3 Billion. It’s only second to the KSh 10 Billion that Jakom (Raila Odinga) got to cool down the country after 2017 (protracted Presidential election). Well done Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka,” Moses Kuria said in a Facebook post.

Kuria’s remarks come just hours after Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana announced that the Wiper leader had agreed to rejoin the Azimio la Umoja –One Kenya alliance.

“Finally Wiper has decided to join Azimio where Kamba Nation is domiciled about two months to elections. Dialogue with Azimio’s leadership must involve those of us who have been selling Azimio in the region; those who did the heavy lifting, and Wiper,” Kibwana said in a tweeter post seen by Kivumbi.co.ke.

Kalonzo had vowed to support the 2022 presidential front runner Raila Odinga for a record third time but withdrew his support after losing the Azimio la Umoja –One Kenya presidential running mate slot to Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua.

His rejoining Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party comes just days after Wiper officials asked him to consider reuniting with Azimio la Umoja –One Kenya coalition party presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga saying they feel safe in Raila’s hands.

“We want to be part of the new Kenya going forward but we need structured discussions as what is being offered is only in the media. We want Azimio to know that the issue is about Wiper as a party and not Kalonzo as people have made it to be,” Wiper-Kenya party organizing Secretary Robert Mbui said.
