Kalonzo - We have a shocker for our allies in Msambweni

The Kenyanpost news

Wiper Democratic Movement leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said that his party is the favorite  in the Msambweni Constituency by-election scheduled for December 15. The wiper boss has warned ODM leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto whose candidates are considered frontrunners in the race to prepare for what he termed as a  “ political shock “. Shehe Mahmoud is Wiper’s candidate in the race to succeed late MP Suleiman Dori who succumbed cancer earlier this year. The ODM party has former Bongwe-Gombato MCA Omar Boga while the DP and his Tangatanga faction  are behind Dori’s former Personal Assistant (PA) Feisal Abdallah Bader who will be vying for the parliamentary seat on an independent ticket.

Kalonzo now says that Mohamud is ready to turn the tides in the mini polls. “We don’t doubt his popularity in Msambweni. We have no doubt that we have the right candidate,” Kalonzo said. “We must tell these guys, we have a serious candidate and we will defeat both of them. They are in for a shock.

 Last month Kalonzo rubbished claims by the Jubilee party that Msambweni Constituency is ODM’s stronghold promising to give the party members a run for their money. The former Vice President called on the Jubilee-party that opted not to field a candidate.

Kalonzo seems to want to regain his popularity countrywide with the 2022 succession politics taking centre stage and the intensifying political activities. Kalonzo seems to be a lone ranger in Ukambani as Governor Mutua has started his Presidential barazas , Kibwana and Muthama seen as a Ruto insider , Mama Ngilu is more of BBI and has been against Kalonzo's interference with local politics.
