Wiper party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka was heckled in Makueni county and forced to cut short his tour of the area.

The NASA coalition running mate candidate, was in the area campaigning for himself and his party’s candidates.

Things quickly went south when Kalonzo endorsed Wiper candidate for Kaiti parliamentary seat, Joshua Kimilu but was booed off the stage by People’s Trust Party candidate supporters.

 The residents are said to have chanted People’s party candidate, Joseph Kioko’s name. The chants got louder when Musyoka failed to acknowledge People’s Party and Muungano party as part of NASA.

Retired Chief Of Staff, Kianga Tells Kalonzo To Stop Lying And Here’s Why

Retired Chief of General Staff Jeremiah Kianga has asked Wiper party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka to stop lying about his being sacked by former President Mwai Kibaki.

Kalonzo, claimed that Kianga was forced to resign as a ploy to deter him from ascending to power.

The NASA running mate candidate while speaking in Mbooni asked Kianga to abandon the ruling party, Jubilee. He asked him to join NASA instead and become a Cabinet Secretary in his government.

Kianga on Wednesday rubbished the claims saying he served two more years as Chief of Defense Forces after the end of his four-year term.

“Kalonzo said I didn’t complete my term as Chief of General Staff during Kibaki’s régime, but that is not correct. I even served two more years in that position with the request of the then Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces,” he said during the inspection of Tawa Medical Training college by Health CS Cleopa Mailu.

In regard to joining the Raila Odinga led camp, Jeremiah told off Mr Musyoka saying: “Kalonzo has occasionally asked me in public to abandon Jubilee because Kibaki didn’t help him ascend to power when he was Vice President.”

“I had to tell him off because there will be more benefits in supporting the government than being in the Opposition.”

The retired Chief of Staff went ahead and campaigned for President Uhuru Kenyatta asking the residents to re-elect him if they wanted more development projects completed in the region.
