Political rivalry between Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has been reignited after the former told the latter to stop pushing him to support Orange party leader Raila Odinga presidential ambitions.

Kalonzo, who begins a three-day tour of Ukambani tomorrow, told Ngilu to refrain from pursuing him to back Raila for the third time.

The former vice president said Ngilu has been advancing her selfish political interests in campaigning for Raila instead of putting the interests of the community first.

“Others like Ngilu are telling me to join hands with Raila. Which Kamba people sent her to campaign for Raila? I have no issues with my sister but on this let her shut her mouth,” said Kalonzo.

While speaking in a local Radio station on Monday, Ngilu said she was pushing for Kalonzo to be handed a running mate post in Azimio La Amani.

“There are all indications Mt Kenya people have gone with the running mate position that belonged to Kalonzo under Cord and Nasa, but we are asking that Kalonzo be given back his position under the Azimio coalition. We must fight for our space instead of sitting back to be told stories,” said Ngilu.

The former vice president maintained that he did not need political brokers who have been pocketing millions of monies on his name.
