Ruto asks Kalonzo to work with him since it has failed twice with Raila


Deputy President William Ruto has asked Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka to consider working with him in the 2022 General Election.

Speaking at the funeral of former Cabinet Secretary Cleopas Mailus’s mother, he lauded the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) saying it has given leaders an opportunity to work together regardless of their political affiliations.

Ruto said it was about time for Kalonzo to try a different formula as his support of Raila in 2012 and 2017 had failed to yield fruits.

“The only mistake I made is that I failed to tell Kalonzo their candidate would not become president, Stephen, I helped Uhuru become president twice and he is about to retire, my friend, lets walk together… “Ruto said in part.

Kalonzo however steered clear of the discussion saying there exists no pact between him and Ruto on 2022 succesion politics.

“2022 is three years away, I know the news people are here waiting to write that I have met Ruto again, that is not true, Wiper is straight and we are working with Uhuru for the remainder of his term,” Kalonzo said in part.
