- Boni Khalwale says Kalonzo should be celebrated since he ran for presidency and scored over a million votes
- He also said the latter has supported Raila Odinga twice without fail
Former Kakamega County Senator Boni Khalwale says he has reasons to celebrate National Super Alliance (NASA) Coalition co-Principal and Wiper Democratic Movement – Kenya leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
"This man Kalonzo Musyoka! The most insulted (by ODM Party) leader alive! Give it to him, he ran for president in 2007 & got a cool 1 million votes plus. The former VP has twice (2013 & 2017) supported our brother Raila Odinga. Not a mean thing. Man, I celebrate u!" the former Senator tweeted.

For over a decade Mr. Kalonzo has made political moves that have made Kenyans label him as an opportunist, watermelon, and not-principled. He has been mentioned many times as a deserter with the most recent incident being on January 30 when he and other co-principals failed to show up for Raila Odinga’s swearing-in fete at Uhuru Gardens.
Following the recent meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga, Kenyans are left wondering what the political future of NASA looks like with the co-principals insisting the coalition is still intact.
Mr. Khalwale;’s remarks triggered a series of responses as his many Twitter followers shared their opinion on Kalonzo being great.
Here are some of their thoughts;
Some good incitement there Daktari. As small boys we used do that to start and stoke fights. Hope Hon Kalonzo will let it pass— John Kiongo (@JohnKiongo17) March 19, 2018

But after being a VP. He was supposed to step aside and advise govt on international matters. Polished Diplomat— fesco (@fescco) March 18, 2018
No pun intended Sir, but get your facts right. It was 800, 000+. Where you got 1 M+ , I don't know— Ezekiel Bungei (@ekbungei) March 18, 2018
Unfortunately we don’t need him anymore! He can as well support Mudavadi or anyone he so wishes— Profesa Ochieng Odongo PHO (@OchiengOdongoKE) March 18, 2018
Kiongozi, you can do better than this... Incitement will not help Kenyans in any way. If we go back to 'insulting and betrayal' in Kenyan politics, Baba has eaten the bigger pie and of course propagated by those you purport to celebrate now.

It was so naive for @TheOdmParty to insult an equally strong principal in the name of SKM. This debate on who has more mps is total ignorance. Politically SKM represents southern eastern kenya. Madvd/Wetaa western, Raila Nyanza, Uhuru Central, William RV.— Kalya Kipchirchir (@kalyaelisha) March 18, 2018
