‘Defeating Ruto is my number one priority,’ Kalonzo declares
As the 2022 presidential race begins to take shape, Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka says he is ready to face Deputy President William Ruto in next year’s election.
The wiper boss, while speaking in Kitui County, dismissed Ruto’s hustler narrative terming it unrealistic.
He exuded confidence that he will floor Ruto in the race to succeed President Kenyatta.
“Defeating William Ruto is my number one priority and I have reasons for it… Defeating you we shall,” said Kalonzo.
Kalonzo says he is set to kickstart countrywide rallies to popularize his presidential bid.
“Yeyote yule anataka kuja kuomba kura ukambani amekaribishwa… Mimi nitaenda Eldoret kwa William Ruto, Siaya, Kisumu… Nitaenda everywhere. That is the nation we want,” added the Wiper leader.
Kalonzo’s warning shot coming amid wrangles in the defunct national supper alliance (NASA) with ANC, Ford Kenya, and Wiper resolving to pull out and formalize the One Kenya alliance that has KANU on board.
Kalonzo’s Wiper party is set to hold a meeting of its National Executive Council on Monday to ratify the decision to pull out of NASA before formal communication to the registrar of political parties.
According to the NASA agreement documents, the coalition ceases to exist if three partners pull out.
