I’m incorruptible, give me State House job – Kalonzo
VICE PRESIDENT Kalonzo Musyoka has said he is the most suitable candidate to implement the current constitution if elected as president. Kalonzo said only a leader who is selfless, has integrity and is not corruptible can be trusted to fully implement the new set of laws. He said his Wiper party will reconcile all Kenyans and offer transformational and servant leadership. “We have set on a journey to transform this country. If I am elected as the president, I will fully implement the constitution because therein lies the formula to transform this country,” Kalonzo said.
He was addressing a rally at Musila Gardens in Mwingi town on Saturday as he wound up his campaign tour of Ukambani. The VP said the 2013 presidential contest provides Kenyans with a choice between evil and good. He warned Kenyans against people calling themselves reformers during the day yet they are “thieves” at night. “Kenyans must elect a leader who has demonstrated resolve to fight corruption and ethnic disharmony,” he said.
Kalonzo said some of those gunning for the presidency have a questionable and tainted history saying they will not pass the integrity test. “We know them, their corrupt ways and potential to cause instability. I am telling you they will not get integrity certificates to contest,” Kalonzo said. Defence assistant minister David Musila and Kangundo MP Johnstone Muthama urged the VP to embark on vote hunting in other regions. They assured him they will consolidate the home base support.
The VP began his Ukambani, tour organised by the Kamba Council of Elders, in Machakos town on Monday. He proceeded to Makueni before addressing a rally in Kitui town and finally in Mwingi. Kalonzo said the blessings he received from the elders had emboldened him saying he is now fully prepared to go vote-hunting elsewhere. MPs Gedion Ndambuki (Kaiti), Isaac Muoki (Kitui South), Phillip Kaloki (Kibwezi), Charles Kilonzo (Yatta), Charles Nyamai (Kitui West), Peter Kiilu (Makueni) Shakilla Abdalla and Mohammed Affey attended the rally. They vowed to support the VP to win the presidency.
