The fruit of the handshake are now spreading and even becoming more and more tastier. For a moment some people thought that it won’t work, but look at Raila Odinga right now, that is a testimony of the fruits of handshake.
Kalonzo Musyoka who was referred to as “Kanda ya Moko” by the Ukambani leaders for committing to be President Uhuru Kenyatta errand boy will now start eating a full course meal.
The first season of harvest for the Wiper Party leader is the restoring of security details to his three homes.The security team was withdrawn during the heated presidential election last year, when the Raila Odinga-led National Super Alliance (Nasa) was locked in a brutal fight for the State House job with President Kenyatta’s Jubilee.
Mr Musyoka also received an enhanced mobile security detail, including a car with a siren to clear traffic. This is in an opener of more and more things coming on his way after defying the odds and accepting responsibility.
Although he is entitled to the detail by virtue of having served as vice-president, Mr Musyoka’s security had become a political weapon, with the police officers being withdrawn whenever he refused to cave in to government pressure.
When he spoke at the funeral of Mr Peter Musyoka, the former vice-president’s father, in Tseikuru on Friday, President Kenyatta hinted at a job for the former VP.
In his speech, Mr Musyoka all but accepted any such appointment.
“From today, in front of this crowd and before the clergy, I want to ask that no one come between President Kenyatta and me. Let no one come between my children and the President’s children. From today, I am President Kenyatta’s right-hand man, ” the Wiper leader told mourners.
However, his statement continues to annoy a number of his supporters, who are piling pressure on him to clarify what he meant.
Speaking at St John’s Catholic Church in Lita, Machakos, on Sunday, Mr Muthama said he had received many phone calls from Kenyans and party supporters demanding an explanation for the remarks.
But he said since Mr Musyoka did not consult him, he could not offer any explanation.
Other leaders who have asked for an explanation from Mr Musyoka include Wiper Party Chairman Kivutha Kibwana, and Makueni County Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr.
