Saturday November 26, 2016 – Former Vice President, Kalonzo Musyoka, is now living at the mercy of Machakos Governor, Dr. Alfred Mutua, who had vowed to destroy him anytime he deems fit.
This follows Musyoka’s remarks that appeared to demean Mutua over the alleged kidnapping of Machakos Deputy Governor Bernard Kiala’s daughter three weeks ago.
Mutua has vowed to destroy Kalonzo over the issue after it emerged that he had nothing to do with the alleged kidnapping.
In fact, there was no kidnapping at all because the lady had just eloped with her boyfriend.
Mutua has now given Kalonzo Musyoka an ultimatum to apologize and he will forgive him, failure to which he will sue him for defamation. Here is the full statement.
HON. KALONZO MUSYOKA, APOLOGIZE AND I WILL FORGIVE YOU
For the last four years, Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka and Wiper leadership has berated me, organized various machinations to remove me from office and defamed me many many times. All this because I have refused to be a sycophant and to play politics of poverty. Rather, I have chosen to engage in speedy and real positive change for my people of Machakos and Kenya by engaging in politics of development.
Despite all these acts by Kalonzo Musyoka, I have forgiven him over and over again.
The recent incitement and defamation whereby he linked me to kidnappings and insinuated that I may be involved in murder, is very serious. However, because I understand that to move our country Kenya forward, we need leadership that unites and perpetuates peace, harmony and development, I have an offer for Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka:
If you apologize, as requested in our letter to you dated Nov. 16th, 2016, I will, one more time, as a good Christian, forgive you and will not sue you or pursue for your charging for hate speech. If you do not, then my hands will be tied and on Friday, Nov. 25th, 2016, I will instruct my lawyers to file a suit against you.
Kenyans are tired of politics of poverty based on personalities and maintaining the comfortable lifestyles of a few.
Hate speech, incitement, perpetuating of tribalism, corruption, political dictatorship and intolerance have to be rejected and fought by all God loving Kenyans.
I urge all leaders to practice tolerance and to focus their energies on rolling poverty, especially by dealing with the high youth unemployment and provision of basic services such as water, food, education, health, infrastructure and security, among many others. That is the spirit of Maendeleo Chap Chap – Mwananchi first.
