Raila shuts Kalonzo’s 2022 presidential dream

Kalonzo’s close Allies dismissed the proposed alliance saying it is inconsequential since the former Vice President is still the Ukambani kingpin.

As away of putting in place strong squad and concretises his regional pillars ahead of 2022 general elections , former prime minister Raila Odinga has officially finalised a deal with Makueni county boss Kivutha Kibwana

Even though Raila has not publicly declared whether he will make a fifth stab at the presidency, he has established that he is re-organising a new strong squade that will be dominated by well-known figures of the country’s Second Liberation.

His recent move targeting bigwigs politically across the country seems to be a threat to the newly established One Kenya Alliance that brings together Gideon Moi (Kanu), Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya), Kolonzo Musyoka (Wiper) and Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) has stung Raila into action.

A team of ODM top officials from Lower Eastern region on Tuesday were dispatched a to meet governor Kibwana with the main focus being discussing the possibility alliance between the kibwana’s party and ODM ahead of 2022.

Kibwana’s move has been criticised by many especially kalonzo’s close allies saying that the governor without Kalonzo is toothless because the voters are solidly behind Wiper.

Kibwana said he shares common development agenda with Raila in terms of agitating for genuine change to take the country forward thus he is willing to join hands with ODM.

Adding that Raila should also now engage his fellow governors in Ukambani

Kalonzo’s close Allies dismissed the proposed alliance saying it is inconsequential since the former Vice President is still the Ukambani kingpin.

Kitui ODM chairman Peter Munyasya said they “had a fruitful discussion with Kibwana about national and regional politics and crucially about emerging national and regional development issues within the region.”

“On behalf of ODM, we request Governor Kibwana and his allies to work with ODM either directly or through a like-minded party of his choice in propelling his political development agenda,” said Munyasya
