Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka fired a salvo at Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala for questioning his gesture when he invite Raila Odinga at the party’s National Delegates Conference (NDC) on Thursday at Kasarani Stadium, Nairobi.

While campaigning in Bungoma County yesterday, Malala asked Kalonzo to be clear if he was with One Kenya Alliance (OKA) or was stepping down for Odinga’s presidency in 2022, despite Wiper delegates endorsing him for the presidency.

Kalonzo told Malala to his face that he was too young to understand what bringing a nation together means and that he was also too inexperienced politically to direct the principals on which way to go.

Besides, the Wiper party leader told Malala that though he appeared to mean well for the party, it should not emerge in the future that he is working for Deputy President William Ruto.

“I want to tell you Senator Malala that you are a young boy in politics. I would not wish to answer you but you don’t understand what it means to bring a country together. You should be telling us to do the right thing of sticking together not sidelining someone (Raila) yet we need the support of everyone to win the top seat. Let in not be that you are lecturing us here because you have been sent by that Wheelbarrow man,” Kalonzo said.

Senator Malala, who boycotted the Wiper NDC, has been vocal against the invitation of Odinga saying the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party boss is their competitor and should never be involved in their strategy meetings.

In the rally. Malala maintained that OKA should work together and keep Raila off from their meetings.

He threatened to walk away should the OKA Principals step down for Odinga in 2022.

“Wetangula you are my good friend, I want to tell you that if you step down for Raila I will stop supporting you people immediately,” he said.
