Machakos gubernatorial hopeful Nzioka Waita rears into Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka with claims that he is overseeing the “systematic destruction” of the Kamba community.

The former State House Chief of Staff in a lengthy message on Twitter called out Kalonzo for seemingly being illiberal at the cost of the Kamba people and their unity at large.

“When Mulu Mutisya held Kalonzo Musyoka’s hand and took him to Kabarak where he was annointed the Leader of the Kamba Nation, Mulu (God rest his soul) expected that SKM would unite all our peoples & bring prosperity,” he said.

“Instead, he is overseeing the systematic destruction of Kamba Unity. I respect Kalonzo Musyoka deeply and he knows it, but we must look back and ask why Musila, Muthama, Ngilu, Kibwana and Mutua all walk away, could they all be wrong?

“Why didn’t SKM use the spirit of Mulu to resolve the issues between himself and our leaders for the sake of our people?” he quipped.

Waita decries the dubious plan by Azimio la Umoja coalition after zoning out Kamba land for the Wiper party. He claims this will isolate the area from partaking in the national cake should Raila clinch the top seat.

“Kalonzo’s strange ideas of democracy do not bode well for the future of the Kamba Nation as a whole and specifically the people of Machakos.

“If Azimio succumbs to this blackmail, we the Kamba Nation better book an early seat on the opposition benches where we shall sit for another 10 years," he tweeted.

“I urge Kalonzo to stop his demands to zone Machakos if he is so confident about his candidate. Let the people decide, do not rob them of their future. They will never forgive you!” Waita wrote in conclusion.

This came barely weeks after Makueni governor Kivutha Kibwana accused Kalonzo of making it increasingly difficult for him (the governor) to gather votes for Raila in Ukambani.

“It is proving impossible to work with Kalonzo Musyoka in Azimio in Ukambani. After he joined us, he especially wanted me out of all Azimio structures,” Kibwana said in a tweet sent on April 20.

“I have no choice but to be at peace with this sad reality. History will ultimately judge all of us. May it be kind @RailaOdinga,” he added.
