Did Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka might have shot himself in the foot with his public declaration that he was willing to run errands for President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The Kamba kingpin declaration has baffled friends and foes alike.
Party chairman Kivutha Kibwana faulted the party leader’s declaration, saying it was not well thought out and questioned Mr Musyoka’s commitment to his espoused bid for State House.
“Yuyu mutongoi wa andu atwika mundu wa mukono, namo andu ala ma ivalo mamutumie mesani ya nthi makatwika kyau? (When a leader of the people becomes an errand boy, what becomes of the followers who have elevated him to the negotiation table?”) reads part of a statement he published on social media on Saturday.
This is umpteenth time that Prof Kibwana is lashing out at Mr Musyoka, whom he has marketed several times as a suitable presidential candidate.
The day before, Prof Kibwana had called on President Kenyatta to elevate Mr Musyoka to the status of his deputy William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga, arguing that the March 9 handshake was meant to benefit all Kenyans-and not individuals.
Similarly, Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior said that Mr Musyoka should clarify what benefits his alliance with President Kenyatta will bring to the Kamba community and explain why he had warned against being questioned on his decision, to avoid any misunderstandings.
Mr Musyoka has remained tight-lipped about the complaints.
