Kalonzo 'forgot' to pay KES 20,000 debt
05 August 2015, 16:38
Nairobi - CORD and Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has moved to repel claims that he refused to pay a bill to a leisure club on purpose.
Kalonzo Wednesday was at pains to reject rumours that he had been kicked out of the exclusive Karen Country Club in Nairobi because he had refused to settle a debt.
According to Kalonzo, he was not aware that he owed the members only Club KES 22,337 because of his busy schedule.
"Kalonzo was in the United States for two weeks prior to the Obama weekend and has not visited the establishment since," his aide Dennis Kavisu said.
In a statement to newsrooms on Wednesday, Kavisu added that the club management had not notified Kalonzo of the debt.
"The membership of the club accommodates the principal and family members and thus a debt can be incurred without his knowledge," Kavisu further stated.
He also denied that the Kalonzo family membership had been terminated.
" Any information to that effect is false and should be ignored," he added.
Kalonzo is busy preparing for what is a momentous 18 months for him and his coalition, with the Okoa Kenya referendum taking shape and the 2017 General Elections not too far away.
