Kalonzo to open party offices

Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka is expected to tour Coast region this week to open party offices.

He will also drum up support for the party ahead of the next general election and the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

The former vice president's visit comes barely two weeks after ODM leader Raila Odinga toured the region where the BBI and the 2022 General Election campaigns took centre stage in Taita-Taveta, Kwale and Mombasa counties, respectively.

Last month, Deputy President William Ruto also toured the county where he held a meeting with over 400 religious leaders in the region.

In Taita-Taveta, Raila was hosted by Governor Granton Samboja who has since joined the ODM leader's political bandwagon.

Samboja, elected on a Wiper Party ticket in the last election, has lately been deeply involved in ODM activities in the region that has been regarded as Raila's stronghold.

Samboja has been instrumental in drumming up support for the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila.

Yesterday, Wundanyi MP Danson Mwashako and Assembly Speaker Meshack Maganga confirmed Kalonzo will tour the region tomorrow.

Mwashako and Maganga said Kalonzo will first address the Assembly members at the chambers in the morning, officially open the party offices before addressing a political rally at the Wundanyi bus stop.

Sources told The Standard that Kalonzo will install the MP as his point man in the region after the governor shifted his allegiance to Raila. “I will host my party leader tomorrow. You will know my political stand on Parliament dissolution as called by Chief Justice David Maraga,” Mwashako said yesterday.
