Deputy President William Ruto has reiterated calls for Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka to ditch the Azimio la Umoja caravan and join the Hustler nation.
Speaking in Kangundo during a stopover campaign rally on Wednesday, Ruto said ODM leader and Azimio la Umoja presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga has taken Kalonzo in circles for far too long.
“Si mlisikia Kalonzo juzi akisema wamezungusha mpaka ameenda sign makaratasi yenye hata hajui ni nini ali-sign,” Ruto said.
This translates to: “They have taken him in circles until recently Kalonzo himself confessed that he doesn’t know what he signed.”
On March 14, barely a day after the unveiling of Raila as the Azimio flag bearer, Kalonzo revealed that non of the more than 20 parties that joined the formation during the event were aware of the binding legal provisions in the agreement.
He said the signing process at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) was so rushed that the legal issues were bypassed.
“There was nothing there… if I ask all those Secretary generals what they fixed their signatures to, probably nobody knows,” Kalonzo said.
Ruto said Kalonzo was not knew to the political deceit that the ODM leader is known for.
“He is the same guy without an agenda...the same guy going around with nothing to offer other than tibim and tialala,” Ruto said.
“So, you really want to tell me that this guy who has been around for all this while with nothing to show for is the guy they want to impose on us at 80 years to rule us?” Ruto posed.
“I want you people of Kangundo to put him on a wheelbarrow and transport him back to Bondo,” he added.
“So I want to send you to Kalonzo. Tell him to stop being taken round in corners and cross over to Hustler nation,” Ruto said.
The DP on Wednesday held a series of meetings and stopover rallies within Machakos and Kitui counties.
His campaign caravan snaked through Ciampiu Town in Mwingi North Sub County, Kaviani in Kathiani Sub County, Kikambuani in Kangundo Subcounty and Masii in Mwala subcounty.
