President Uhuru today hinted he will appoint Kalonzo Musyoka a special envoy focusing on peace. Speaking at Tseikuru, Kitui on Friday during the funeral service of Mzee Peter Musyoka Mairu father of former VP Kalonzo Musyoka the president fell short of making the appointment immediately;
”“Nashukuru kuwa Raila (Odinga) amepewa kazi kule AU…. ataweza kuchangia huko na hiyo pesa nyingi si ataleta hapa kwetu tu? Kuna ubaya hapo wenzangu? (Loosely translated: I’m grateful that Raila has been given a job by AU…He will be able to contribute here and don’t you think he will bring some money to Kenya? Is that wrong my brothers?”)
“My brother Kalonzo should help us to bring the country together and peace for all Kenyans and even internationally. Every leader has something to contribute…all we need is to give each other space and respect one another!”,. Uhuru told morners
The president emphasized the need for the country to remain united adding that leaders should respect one another.
“We can’t accept that Kenyans should pour their blood because of ethnicity..every leader has something to contribute and all we need is respect…” he said.
“We are all Kenyans and we are going to serve our people! We must work together in order to deliver…and we must deliver as one!”
The president seemed to tell off his deputy William Ruto over his obsession with opposition leader Raila Odinga. The DP had earlier responded to Raila’s river Jordan crocodiles analogy that justifies the HANDSHAKE agreement.
Analyst believe Uhuru will appoint Kalonzo to be special envoy a position to manage down his aggressive deputy.
With Ruto misbehaving, Uhuru needs a defacto deputy, and making Kalonzo something like Uhuru Special Envoy at-Large or Special Envoy Extraordinaire should elevate Kalonzo to such a position. Calling Kalonzo like Special Advisor in Presidential Affairs to the Presidency would place Kalonzo in all top-level meetings, to Ruto’s chagrin. More importantly, it would bring National Unity and allow Kalonzo to introduce Uhuru in every gathering. Kalonzo has incredible DP qualities.– Sospeter Mwangi posted.
In what seemed like a well calculated move, Kalonzo pledged his support to Uhuru and went further to say he will accept to serve president in whatever capacity and that no one will distract his new unity with the President.
“Natangaza hapa leo kuwa hiyo heshima Rais Uhuru amenionyesha na familia…heshima hiyo hatuwezi tukailipa. Kutoka leo, kusitokee mtu atakayenitenganisha mimi na ndugu yangu Uhuru Kenyatta! Mimi nimekubali kuwa mtu wa mguu wa Uhuru,” Kalonzo said.
“I want to tell the public I will not allow anyone to separate me and interfere with my relationship with Uhuru,” Kalonzo said.
Kalonzo, however, said this will not interfere with his special relationship with Nasa leader Raila Odinga
Kalonzo also hit out at Majority leader Aden Duale terming his company Concodia as bogus for having done poor quality works in a road construction in Kitui, the former VP called out Duale and asked him to deliver quality even if he wants tp make billions from tenders. Duale was ashamed and was left gazing at the horizon.
