Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s troops have declared him the best man to beat President William Ruto in the State House contest in 2027.

Senate Deputy Minority Leader Enoch Wambua, Kalonzo’s key lieutenant, said the former vice president will be the Azimio candidate in the upcoming polls.

“Kalonzo will be the Azimio-OKA presidential candidate in 2027 with the full backing of Baba Raila Odinga, President Uhuru Kenyatta, and the galaxy of Azimio-OKA principals,” he said in a statement.

The move could now put pressure on Kalonzo and trigger disquiet within Azimio, especially if Azimio boss Raila Odinga declares his interest in facing Ruto again.

In a scathing attack on Ruto on Monday, the Kitui senator reckoned that Kalonzo has demonstrated credentials to not only beat Ruto but also correct the ‘ mess’ deliberately brought by his administration.

“In the race to defeat Ruto, we shall seek votes from all eligible voters in this country. So serious is this movement that I am asking President William Ruto to consider voting for Kalonzo to be Kenya’s president in the August 2027 presidential election,” he said.

He said that the Wiper fraternity is on a mission and shall demonstrate, in word and deed, that Kalonzo is the right leader to take over and fix the mess.

Wambua described Kalonzo as an honest, trustworthy, and incorruptible leader whom Ruto cannot beat in an open presidential contest.


“Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka must be prepared and get ready to put Kenya on the path of national cohesion, political stability, and economic recovery,” he said.

Wambua reckoned that Kalonzo has proved to be a statesman by sacrificing his own presidential ambitions three times since 2013.

“In 2022, Raila asked Kalonzo to not only drop his credible presidential bid but to go further and vacate the running mate slot. H.E. Dr. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka did not disappoint,” he stated.

Wambua asked Azimio to swing into action in the new year and in one accord, make bold strides towards forming the next government to save Kenyans from the ‘clueless, inept, and incompetent’ Kenya Kwanza administration.

He said the Azimio can no longer continue to live in denial that all the Azimio principals stand an equal chance to beat Ruto.

“We can no longer continue to pretend that all the Azimio-OKA principals stand an equal chance of beating Ruto on the ballot. I refuse to live in a make-believe world. We must confront our reality and deal with it today. Not tomorrow,” he said.

In his statement, Wambua attacked Ruto’s administration as a failed regime that has failed to address pressing issues affecting Kenyans.

He cited the high cost of living and the capture of Parliament by the Executive as some of the ills and failures of the Ruto regime.

“When the masses step out in the streets and in villages all over the country to demand relief in the cost of living, no bullet or grenade or bomb will be strong enough to stop them,” he said.

In a clear indication of looming street protests over the high cost of living, Wambua said Kenyans will be unstoppable

“President Ruto and his inner circle, including the foreign bystanders in the suffering of the masses, can dismiss this as idle talk. The next phase of picketing will simply be unstoppable,” he said.

“Kenyans have already had enough of the empty promises by the KK regime. In fact, Kenyans are extremely frustrated by this regime. Kenyans can only judge President Ruto and the coterie of praise singers in his palace by their actions because their promises no longer mean anything.”

Wambua claimed that Parliament has become a puppet and conveyor belt, remotely controlled by the Executive.

“The Finance Act 2023 is a painful case in point; a thorn in the flesh of the masses. Almost every person, institution, and interest group that appeared before the Finance and Budget Committee of the National Assembly sought a repeal of the proposed oppressive taxation.”

“But, riding on a manufactured tyranny of numbers, MPs allied to the Kenya Kwanza regime forced the Bill through Parliament, and the President assented it into law.”
