Claims that Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka is planning to decamp to Kenya Kwanza has sparked mixed reactions on social media.

Kalonzo was working closely with Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance leader Raila Odinga who lost the presidency to William Ruto.

And now, days after Ruto was declared president elect, Kalonzo is reportedly interested in joining his camp and work with him.

At the same time, a section of Ukambani residents want Kalonzo to join Ruto’s camp so that the region could reap from the government.

They also want the president-elect to work with leaders from the region who vied under the UDA party but lost.

“We request you (Ruto) on his behalf to have him inside your government. We need development in our marginalised region now more than ever,” a local resident was quoted by The Star.

While campaigning ahead of the just concluded polls, Ruto had offered Kalonzo a job in the UDA government if he joins them.

Speaking in a campaign trail, the outgoing DP noted that he regretted Kalonzo’s treatment in Azimio, saying he will save him.

“I know Kalonzo does not like me but it is not for any other reason, he has been incited by that man (Raila), why can’t you allow me to save this man?

“This government we are going to form we will give him a job. He has suffered long enough,” Ruto said amid cheers from the crowd.

However, Kalonzo fired back at the UDA team, insisting that he is not interested in his job offer.

“Yesterday (Friday) he angrily talked a lot about his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta telling him to leave him alone. Now I want to tell Ruto, please leave Kalonzo alone

“Not just about Kalonzo benefitting . He has been saying that I was lied to, I was sidelined. Pilipili usiyo kula yakuwashia nini?” He posed.
