Why Governor Ngilu is desperate to have Kalonzo in Raila's camp

 Unlike many senior politicians in Wiper Party leadership who belief that the Wiper Party leader Dr. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka should never again deputize ODM leader Raila Odinga in the forthcoming election, Kitui governor has of late been pushing the Wiper leader into supporting Mr. Odinga claiming that only the ODM leader had the political muscle to defeat DP William Ruto in 2022 presidential elections.

 The governor's efforts to push Kalonzo towards Mr. Odinga have been the direct opposite of what other leader from Ukambani including Kitui senator Enoch Kiio Wambua and Makueni senator Mutula Kilonzo junior have been advocating for.

For example, Kitui senator Enoch Kiio Wambua has over and over again maintained his stance that the former VP Mr. Musyoka shouldn't ever again deputize Raila, this is after supporting him in two previous presidential election which Raila lost. 

"We are not ready to support Mr. Odinga again in any election, if he wants to join OKA he has to come in as an equal partner and he must commit to support our party leader Dr. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka. Our party leader has supported him twice since 2013 and now its the time for Mr. Odinga to reciprocate," Mr. Wambua said in a recent interview in one of our local TV stations.

However, Kitui governor Charity Ngilu made her stance clear yesterday during the send off of Edith Malombe who is the wife to the pioneer governor of Kitui county Dr. Julius Malombe at their home in Ithiiani village, when she stated that Kalonzo lacked the political muscles to vie for presidency, advising him not to listen to the likes of Kitui Enoch Wambua for they were misleading him to vie for their personal political expedience.

"My brother Kalonzo do not be deceived by David selfish leaders who want to ride on your political capital to earn them elective seats and leave you out in the cold as the next government is formed".  Said Ngilu.

The county boss added "I appreciate the fact that most Ukambani disagree with me that time is not yet ripe for our son Kalonzo to be Kenya's presidency_ but time will vindicate me"

What leaves many wondering however, is the motive of governor Ngilu in pushing the Wiper boss into supporting the ODM leader. 

Leaders across the world are led by their interests, Governor Ngilu seems to have lost touch with the ground and Kitui residents are determined to send her home due to her wanting development record.

Pushing Mr. Musyoka to support Raila Odinga would give governor Ngilu an easier platform to campaign for her seat, as she will simply depict herself as the savior for the Kamba nation by leading Kamba community to the side where presidency will be after 2022. This will proof governor Ngilu right if Raila succeeds in wining presidency in the next general election.

If such a move succeeds, then we won't be wrong to count Governor Ngilu among the political geniuses of this nation.
