ANC National Delegates conference at the Bomas came with a share of unexpected surprises even as ANC party supporters were warming up for the big announcement from their party leader Hon. Musalia Mudavadi
A number of likeminded top political friends had been invited and it was not a political mistake that Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s seat was placed right next to that of DP William Ruto at the ANC National Delegates Conference.
This was a well-calculated move by the organizers probably to ensure Ruto and Kalonzo sit next to each other and have a chance to engage in the game of political seduction.
If Kalonzo would have sat next to Ruto at the event, the UDA boss would have loved every second of it.It would simply mean that Kalonzo was warming up to Ruto and his wheelbarrow story.
However, a witty Kalonzo together KANU Boss Gideon Moi saw the trap and bolted even before Ruto arrived.Indeed, Kalonzo took issue with the fact that Ruto’s seat was placed next to his at the Bomas event.
Kalonzo did not like the arrangement one bit – and made his feeling clear to Ford Kenya Leader Moses Wetang’ula as he was walking out of Bomas on Sunday, January 23.
“You see, Ruto’ seat was right next to mine…” Kalonzo could be heard speaking to Wetang’ula on their way out.
Since politics is a game of perception, Kalonzo may have feared what message this would portray to Kenyans and his supporters.
This comes just days after Ruto took a swipe at Kalonzo when he visited Ukambani.
DP William Ruto has taken a swipe at Wiper leader Kalonzo for supporting ODM party leader Raila Odinga for the presidency.
“Mimi sina shida na mtu yeyote, nilisaida Raila hadi akawa Prime Minister lakini ilifika wakati nikagundua hapendi Mungu nikachoka nikamwachia Kalonzo,” Ruto said.
“Kalonzo alimsukuma hadi siku hizi nywele yake imekwisha. Ukipata mtu analalamika juu ya Kanisa, jua kuna shida.” Rut added
Meanwhile, Kenyans are left wondering what will become of OKA after Gideon Moi and Kalonzo walked out from the Mudavadi event in protest.
