The Head of Political Affairs of the Wiper Democratic Movement Norman Magaya has caused a stir online after his Tuesday night interviews where he told Citizen TV’s Wahiga Mwaura that William Ruto and the UDA brigade were enemy number one to Kenya and deserved to be defeated in 2022.
Magaya, who is a former CEO of the dissolved NASA coalition said the 2022 coalition Wiper party will be a part of is singularly focused on departing from the mess of the last nine years, where DP Ruto has been at the helm.
”The battle lines are drawn. It is the rest versus UDA. That is undeniable. The biggest obstacle that must be stopped is UDA. Forthright, without beating around the bush, the enemy of the Kenyan people today is UDA and William Ruto,” Magaya said.
The lawyer cum political strategist who has been out of the limelight for some time was speaking in a panel with Hombay Woman Rep Gladys Wanga, Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa, and Lamu East MP Kassim Tandaza where he outlined the Wiper party’s main agenda going into 2022 is completely eradicating corruption and reorganise the country’s taxation system.
”The first question we must deal with is the question of corruption. That sets us apart as to who we can no work with as far as the 2022 general elections are concerned. We must curb corruption in the public sector, in procurement, fix it and charge those who are involved then recover stolen money,” he added.
Magaya, a decorated law scholar and political strategist was CEO of NASA from 2016 until when he collapsed at the Bomas of Kenya in August 2017 during the tabulation of the presidential votes.
Almost two years later in September 2019, Mr. Magaya was admitted to Nairobi Hospital before being flown to India for specialised medical treatment after a heart attack. That would be the last time Magaya was ever seen in public, until today, when he joined Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka at a press conference where the Wiper leader announced their exit from NASA Coalition last week.
