Rift Valley leaders tell off Kalonzo over talk on 2027 polls
- In a recent interview with TV47, Kalonzo said the country should revert to manual voting system before to the 2027 polls.
- Chepalungu MP Victor Koech says President William Ruto will be re-elected in 2027 with a landslide.
A section of leaders from the Rift Valley region has told off Wiper Democratic Movement leader Kalonzo Musyoka over his recent talk on the 2027 general election.
Led by Bomet Governor Prof. Hillary Barchok and Chepalungu MP Victor Koech, the leaders said it is "too early for campaigns" and called on all party leaders to concentrate on development matters.
In a recent interview with TV47, Kalonzo said the country should revert to manual voting system before to the 2027 polls. He also said the August 2022 general election in which United Democratic Alliance candidate William Ruto won was not free and fair.
Prof. Barchok said Kalonzo and other opposition leaders should stick to their oversight roles and not talking about future polls. He added that the criticism of the past election is evidence that they lacked development agenda in the last polls.
On his part, MP Koech opined that the opposition is already sensing defeat in the next polls and is preparing to discredit the election. The legislator said President Ruto will win re-election by a landslide.
He added that the opposition leaders should give the Kenya Kwanza government room to fulfil its pledges especially on the economy.
