Wednesday, December 23, 2020 -Deputy President William Ruto allies move to disparage Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s political leadership led to a short public friction between the two.
Speaking yesterday Tuesday December 23 during burial service of Machakos Senator Boniface Mutinda Kabaka, the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator made this worse when he termed Kalonzo’s relationship with Jubilee as “a waste of time” and a ticking time bomb for another deceit.
“Do not be lied to. We know Jubilee party better than you do. They will short-change you,” Murkomen openly told Kalonzo.

On his part, the Wiper Party leader responded saying time to be branded names has elapsed and that this time around he is going full throttle. He told DP Ruto allies that he will never allow playing second fiddle for anyone in 2022 race.
This was triggered by Kipchumba Murkomen remarks asking Mr. Kalonzo to start drumming up support for the Deputy President whom he claimed was very close to becoming the next president.
“Kalonzo my brother why cannot you join this man here(DP) and make the next government which is just s tone throw away?” Murkomen posed.

He was principled and dedicated to what he believed in. Mheshimiwa Kabaka will best be remembered for his independent voice and vigour to better the lives of the people of Machakos. pic.twitter.com/IkPW72pTiA
