Ditch Raila And You Be My Deputy President In 2022, Ruto Promises Kalonzo
According to a well-placed source, Kalonzo has been promised the second most powerful seat in the country if he backs Uhuru in the forthcoming general elections.
Those who are privy in the ongoing on power schemes, Kalonzo will be the Speaker of the National Assembly. Other positions Wiper party will be ‘gifted’ by Jubilee if Kalonzo agrees to play ball include:
Two Cabinet Secretaries position
Three Principal Secretaries position
Five Ambassadorial post
With the wrangling in the ODM, the Jubilee party has seen the perfect opportunity of wooing Kalonzo to their side.
Already, Jubilee emissaries have been enticing close Kalonzo confidantes with the powerful positions. Just last week, Kitui MPs affiliated to Kalonzo visited President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House.
While Wiper denied any political motive, Jubilee went on overdrive by claiming that Wiper was in bed with the ruling coalition.
It is said that Ruto is looking for a leader with a national appeal to be his running mate outside the Mt Kenya orbit.
Wiper leader has denied that he is interested in working with Jubilee-sentiments shared by Machakos Senator Muthama.
