Senator Mutula Junior staring at bleak future in Wiper



Wars have intensified between Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior and the chairman of Kenya Medical Training College Hon Philip Kaloki as new arrangements leave the young and hyped senator confused about his future in Wiper Party.

Both Kilonzo and Kaloki are eyeing the Mukueni gubernatorial seat that will fall vacant when the incumbent, Prof. Kivutha Kibwani retires in 2022 but their wars are splitting the Wiper party into factions with ‘the ground’ dramatically shifting in favor Kaloki.

The two politicians have been sycophantic supporters of the Wiper owner, Hon. Kalonzo Muysoka who has openly endorsed the 71 year old Kaloki for the job, a move that has dealt Senator Kilonzo’s bid major blows.

Kalonzo did not disclose his reasons for backing Kaloki’s bid but ‘the ground’ seems happy with the endorsement. The former vice president is said to have been angered when Junior publicly accused the old Kaloki of frustrating his sister Kethi Kilonzo’s bid to succeed their late father in 2013.

Everybody knows that Kethi WAS NOT legible to run because she was not a registered voter BUT had faked a voter’s card. Her illegibility paved the way for Kilonzo Junior who won in the by-elections in 2013 and successfully defended his seat in 2017.

But the the person who blew the whistle on Kethi Kilonzo’s fake voter’s card was one Grace Mwendwa who was Kaloki’s opponent in Kibwezi. Grace was being used by the senator’s stepmother Nduku Mutula who was being pushed by the regime to go for Mutula Senior’s seat.

Kilonzo’s silly attack on Kaloki was completely uncalled and it showcased his desperations when had curved the posture of a serious candidate to succeed Governor Kibwana.

He got his current position on a silver plate and developed a feeling that his family is entitled to all the top political seats in Makueni. Junior slept on that ‘entitlement’ and now wants to be a governor without initiating any development project for the people.

Kaloki on the other hand has been using his position as the chairman of KMTC board of directors to construct KMTC camps in Nunguni in Kilungu, Kaiti constituency whose functions were only delayed by the Covid-19 outbreak. The corrupt kmtc boss has also opened another KMTC college in his home area of  Emali.

He also performed well when he served as Kibwezi MP but Kilonzo Junior has been sleeping on the senators with total disregard of the Makueni residents.

Junior’s bid is also facing another fresh entrant in the race, Prof. Emmanuel Mutisya, a top class economist who is also leaving his foot prints in Makueni county where he is sinking boreholes for locals and building classrooms to woo voters.

He is fast becoming an isolated man in Wiper boasting of a handful of online supporters after he lost Kalonzo’s support and confidence to bag the Wiper party ticket. He has also been isolated by key allies including Makueni Mp Dan Maanzo who is also his sister’s baby daddy.

To avoid being thrown into political cold in post 2022, Mutula’s better option should be defending his senatorial seat to reorganize his gubernatorial bid and amasse campaign funds.

Mutula Junior is financially limping since he is only relying on his salary and allowances after his stepmother Nduku Mutula too full control of Kilonzo and Company Advocates, a law firm that their late father left them.
