Give Kalonzo a chance in 2017, MP tells Raila

27 April 2015, 15:06 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Jomvu MP, Badi Twalib has appealed to Raila Odinga and Moses Wetang’ula to support their fellow Cord co-principal, Kalonzo Musyoka, in the coming 2017 general elections.

Speaking during a Wiper Democratic Movement Special Delegates Conference at Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi over the weekend, Twalib said the two leaders must back Kalonzo as he goes for the top seat because he appeals to most Kenyans and has a clean record.

“Kalonzo is a senior politician with impeccable credentials from previous posts he held in government. He is a clean man with no scandal to his name. We are asking Raila and Wetang’ula to support him in the coming polls,” he said.

“Among the three principals of Cord, Kalonzo has a wider national appeal and many Kenyans are comfortable with him. He will be voted in by many people if he vied for the presidency and he is supported by Raila and Wetang’ula,” said Twalib, who spoke on behalf of MPs at the function.

During the functions attended by a host of leaders, Kalonzo rubbished claims that he is set to join the Jubilee government as a cabinet secretary, and reassured the delegates that he won’t do such a thing.

“I would rather die than betray my conscience by joining a government that has failed to discharge its constitutional mandate to Kenyans. You should disregard such reports when you read them in blogs or papers,” said Kalonzo.

Senators Moses Wetang’ula (Bungoma), James Orengo (Siaya), David Musila (Kitui), Johnstone Muthama (Machakos), Hassan Omar (Mombasa), Mutula Kilonzo Jnr (Makueni), Ken Mong’are (Nyamira) were present. Also present were Governors Julius Malombe (Kitui), Hussein Dado (Tana River).

The MPs at the meeting apart from Badi Twalib included;  Hezron Awiti (Nyali) and Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini) among others.
