President William Ruto has said he will work with Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka – at whatever point he is ready.
Speaking during a church service, Ukambani leaders led by Kitui Governor Julius Malombe and his Machakos counterpart Wavinya Ndeti called upon the President to work with Kalonzo.
Responding to their call, Ruto said he has forever been available to work with the Wiper chief, at whatever point he (Kalonzo) will be ready.
“You have talked about the issues of my brother Stephen (Kalonzo). He is my elder brother and whenever he is ready to work with me, I am ready to work with him,” President Ruto said.
“I told you this when I was here… if you remember. I told you if God makes it possible for me to form government, I will look for my brother Stephen and involve him in running government.”
President Ruto further explained that he has held chats with Kalonzo, yet he (Kalonzo) is as yet determined on being in the resistance.
“I want you to know that I have looked for Stephen, sat down with him…told him ‘here is the government, let us work together he told me he wants to try opposition first. So, let him try opposition first then we see where he gets, then we can talk later. There is no problem, even opposition is work, it also helps us to move Kenya forward,” Ruto said.
The two promised to work with Ruto’s administration, despite the fact that the area to a great extent cast a ballot for Azimio la Umoja’s Raila Odinga in the August 2022 General Political race.
