“Kalonzo is one of the most honest politicians in Kenya. You will notice I didn’t say he is one of the most honest people in Kenya. I have compared him to politicians, and that says a lot because Kenyan politicians are a lying bunch,” the lawyer observed.
The US-based human rights activist further stated that Musyoka’s presidential bid would benefit from his Kamba ethnicity given that there is a need to rotate the presidency across the 42 tribes in the country.
Other traits that Mutua mentioned in his praise of Musyoka included the Wiper leader’s likeability, especially from the Kikuyu and Kalenjin communities, combined with his expertise in diplomacy.
Mutua is regarded as one of the most notable critics of the Jubilee administration and has for long been perceived to be supportive of Odinga’s presidential ambitions.
