By Sammy Waweru January 30th, 2024 2 min read

Kathiani Member of Parliament (MP) Robert Mbui has expressed his confidence that Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka will be ousting the current President, William Ruto, in the 2027 general elections.

Dr Ruto (Kenya Kwanza) will be seeking to retain his seat for the second and last term, and MP Mbui, a close ally of Mr Kalonzo, has said the former Vice President is the only aspirant who will make the current president serve one term.

According to the lawmaker, serving his third term in parliament, Kalonzo is a God-fearing leader who can be entrusted to ensure Kenyans live a sustainable life.

“Those in the office should now start packing. In 2027, we pray to God to speed up the days so that this guy (referring to President William Ruto) comes down from the tree,” Mr Mbui said on Monday, January 29, 2024, addressing his constituents in Kathiani.

During the next elections, the outspoken legislator allied with the opposition, the country is seeking to elect a God-fearing President who is ready to listen to the plight of Kenyans.

Slamming the Kenya Kwanza Government, Mbui hilariously claimed that when Dr Ruto took over the helm of power, he thought he would bring a reprieve to the country.

“The ones who are there (referring to the current leadership), we thought we were together, but we later heard they are Shakahola people. They were praying in Shakahola forest,” he alleged amidst laughter.

He added, “We want someone who respects everyone. We do not want someone who even lectures children and hurls insults in public rallies”.

Mr Kalonzo, who served as vice president during the late President Mwai Kibaki’s regime, is an Azimio la Umoja co-principal.

Mr Raila Odinga (ODM) is the chief principal of the opposition coalition.

In 2013 and 2017, Kalonzo was Mr Odinga’s running mate in his bid to clinch the highest position in the country.

However, the duo lost in the two elections to the now-retired President Uhuru Kenyatta, who ruled for two terms, with Dr Ruto deputizing him.
