“Am no fool to support Raila again,” Kalonzo addresses his relationship with Raila

Kalonzo addresses his relationship with Azimio leader Raila Odinga adding that he’s earnt his own lessons.

In an interview with NTV on Wednesday, January 4, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka announced that he was no longer going to be Raila’s follower as he had learned his own lessons.

He characterized himself as an unlearned person who hadn’t awakened when he endorsed the former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga.

“The fool in me ended up supporting Raila for the third time but that fool is wiser now than he was then. I am no fool,” he announced. 

The Wiper party leader explained how it cost him time and energy to make Raila understand and stand by their previously agreed terms.

“I had to sit down with him and bring it out in black and white what we had agreed in writing and from that time I announced that I was ready to support him and it was therefore the right thing to do. I had to bring it out of the chest,” he stated. 

The former vice president made it apparent that he had buried his past persona and that he was now a different person.

“The chicken have come to roast and the naysayers who have been calling me watermelon, those issues are behind us and gone with 2022.

You are now looking at a new Kalonzo, last year was a buffalo soldier it will now be more than that,” he noted.

Kalonzo further urged Kenyans to stand with him and called for justice to protect him from false accusations.

“I only wish Kenyans peace and justice and ask them to pray for me so that I may not be accused forever for what I have never done,” he uttered.

Speaking about running for the presidency in the 2027 general election, Kalonzo announced that he would not turn down the endorsement if presented.

“We have not sat down as a party. We will call an executive meeting and look at all those issues and develop a consensus.

In the event, we are still around and if my party nominates me to run I will run as I have never run before,” he stated.
