“I want today to make an appeal to all the Kamba community in Kajiado, in front of Kalonzo whom we are praying to be the next president, to support me next year,” said Lenku.

 Kalonzo Musyoka has urged Kajiado Maasai to reject Tangatanga politicians in 2022 for they have nothing to offer to the community.

Details of two videos emerging from a private meeting he held with governor Joseph Lenku in Kajiado on Saturday, Kalonzo is seen and heard telling the Maasai to reject MP Katoo ole Metito.

“Forget about those Tangatangas like Katoo who are opposing Lenku. I am telling you Lenku to stand your ground and you will see everyone behind you. You may not even have opposition in 2022. I am also telling all the Kambas in this county to hold your hand together,” said Kalonzo in one video.

The Wiper leader told the Kamba community that Lenku is a development conscious leader, who will also champion their interests in Kajiado.

Our effort to reach out to Metito for comment over the remarks by Kalozo never materialised even after sending him a WhatsApp message on the same.

On his part, Lenku is also seen urging the community to vote for him in 2022 as he promised them goodies he did not clarify.

“I want today to make an appeal to all the Kamba community in Kajiado, in front of Kalonzo whom we are praying to be the next president, to support me next year,” said Lenku.

He went on: “I want you Syombua, Mutinda and Kilungu to go home feeling and understanding that governor Lenku asked you personally for your votes”.

Governor Lenku said: “Mtoto akiomba samaki, baba yake hawezi kumpatia Mawe” – loosely interpreted – ‘When a child asks for fish, the father cannot give him/her stones’.

He said he has seen grateful people in the Kamba community living in Kajiado and promised them a reward if he wins in the next general election.

In 2017 general election campaigns, Lenku had accused former governor David Nkedianye of “importing” the Kamba community to the county to vote for him.

Lenku even claimed Nkedianye had Kamba roots and not a pure Maasai.
