Senator Musila nearly faints as Kalonzo exposes him badly
Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka is evidently taking charge of his party and protecting it from wolves in sheep skins whose hidden agenda has been to tear the party apart and weaken the acclaimed leader.
During his tour of Kitui county this week where he urged the locals to turn out and register enmass as voters, Kalonzo appeared to be taking no prisoners something that galled a section of party pretenders who have been shamelessly biting the finger that feeds them.
It was at Kwa Vonza where Kalonzo, sober as stone, told Kitui senator David Musila to desist from his well-known malicious intends to fracture the party by incessantly and unreasonably fighting governor Julius Malombe.
“I’m not supporting anyone but I would be politically stable if Musila remained at the senate and governor Malombe continued with his work. I will make sure these two reconcile and work together,” Kalonzo announced.
And by this alone, senator Musila who was standing a few feet from Kalonzo froze in his tracks. The old man scratched his white hair, blankly gazed at senator Muthama, gasped for breath and helplessly sunk in his car. Like everybody else, he had heard the party boss right! No mincing words!
What many did not know is that Kalonzo is tired of sickening pretence in the party, perpetuated by pretenders who do not mind about his national politics. When Kalonzo is busy galvanizing the party, selfish elements like Musila are busy destabilizing the only stable Wiper government in Lower Eastern. It is not lost on Kalonzo that such elements could be Jubilee moles.
Kalonzo did not stop there. in the same breath, he admonished Musila and sacked corrupt Jubilee Minister Charity Ngilu for taking advantage of the sad and unfortunate death of former Kitui mayor Martha Mwangangi to advance their selfish politics.
“It is sad and callous for politicians to try to use the unfortunate death of the late mayor for political mileage. People must sober up,” Kalonzo admonished even as Musila’s blood pressure and sugar levels shot to dangerous levels.
From then on, the die had been cast. At Kalundu market and finally at Kabati, Musila was a shell of his usual self! He did not expect Kalonzo to take such tough yet sobering stance.
As if the gods have conspired against the aged senator, he met the wrath of charged crowds at Kisasi and Ikanga markets the following day, forcing him to cut short his trip and return to Kitui town at the dead of the night.
As the crowd booed and yelled at him in Kisasi, the shocked, terrified and rejected senator pleaded with Kalonzo to calm the gathering.
“Pati linda vaa ve andu maunzokosa…tafadhali neena namo manenge mwanya nineene,” Musila cried but the crowd would hear none of his whimpers.
The former dictatorial Kanu PC who is not used to being challenged furiously cut short his trip and returned to Kitui town, where he hurriedly called a press conference to purportedly denounce Kalonzo.
In a whimpering, yet tired and cowardly voice, Musila lamely told Kalonzo to keep off Kitui politics and concentrate on his presidential bid! What a joke? So Musila thinks he can demolish Kalonzo in his backyard while pretending to be supporting him nationally? Is Musila any different from Ngilu? How will a weaker Kalonzo at home be successful nationally? That is only Musila’s mediaeval thinking.
Our trusted moles in his camp tell us of a plot by Musila to incite Kitui Wiper MPs against the party leader in a choreographed scheme to coerce Kalonzo support his doomed bid. But who needs who?
What shocked many though is the manner in which Musila executed his anger against Kalonzo by calling a press conference at the devil’s hour, a man he lamely claimed to have a history with, but whom he could not call and register his displeasure privately!
It is not lost on majority of Kalonzo staunch supporters that Musila has something fishy up his sleeve. One such is Campbell Munyambu who while commenting on a popular social media forum advised Musila to stop undermining Kalonzo.
“As a political father and the only trusted leader in Kenya, Kalonzo has all what it takes to advise his people and even take a position. We trust him. We respect him. He is the only leader of our time who can take us to the Promised Land,” Munyambu posted.
The irony of it all is that the aged senator has started calling for free and fair nominations after his powers to influence the primaries were clipped. Majority of the aspirants whom he had promised direct tickets have been left in limbo. And to cap it all, some of his supporters now threaten to join Ngilu’s camp. Will the aged Umau stay the course?
