A section of elders and leaders from Ukambani have called on National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential running mate Kalonzo Musyoka to ditch the opposition and work with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking at separate events in Machakos and Makueni counties the Kamba clans governing council of elders and politicians supporting President Uhuru's Jubilee party asked the Wiper Democratic Movement leader to abandon the opposition.
Led by chairman Boniface Kilonzo, the elders, who addressed a media briefing at a Machakos Hotel, said that the opposition"s calls for demonstrations was not in line with the Kamba community, which is peaceful.
“The call for demonstrations is not in good faith because they are meant to cause chaos and destruction of property. This is economic sabotage punishable by law,” he said.
Speaking at Kambu market in Kibwezi East, former chairman of Kenya Medical Training College board chairman Philip Kaloki and a host of other politicians also told the former Vice President to ditch Nasa, which wants to cause chaos and violence in the country.
Kaloki dismissed Raila’s withdrawal from the October 26th repeat presidential election, terming it as insincere.
“The only path to leadership in our country is through the ballot. Raila’s withdrawal from the poll is an indication that their participation was personal and was not for the good of Kenyans,” he said.
The leaders and elders pointed out that community was losing a lot by supporting the the opposition.
On his part, former Mbooni Member of Parliament Kisoi Munyao said the collaboration between Kalonzo and Raila was no longer tenable, saying it was now a ‘liability to the Kamba nation’.
