Tuesday November 13, 2018 - Former Vice President, Kalonzo Musyoka, is no longer a jobless man after President Uhuru Kenyatta appointed him to a senior position in his Government.

On Monday, Kalonzo accompanied Foreign Affairs CS, Monica Juma, to Juba to deliver Uhuru's congratulatory message to President Salva Kiir for implementing the South Sudan peace agreement.

Kiir entered into a deal with rebel leaderm Riek Machar, ending years of a bloody conflict in that country. 

During his father's burial last Friday, Kalonzo said he will not mind being Uhuru's "mtu wa mkono" - errand boy.

He even 'threatened' those who will meddle with his relationship with the President of unspecified action.

"From today, let no one separate me and my brother Uhuru. I have accepted to run his errands. Those who will attempt to interfere will see my other side," Kalonzo said.

Although there has not been official communication on the former Vice President's new role, he is largely expected to monitor the peace process as the head of the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC). 

Kalonzo has a brilliant career as a diplomat having already played a role in mediation initiatives in Somalia and South Sudan.

  1. Good one Wiper, wipe off those SS tears of war once and for all. Let them focus in producing real melons. Boy h boy are those SS watermelons sweet or are they sweetest! Seriously that country has the potential to feed the entire continent without breaking a sweat! But guns have been its curse... It is time for that nation to list up an offering to Lord for salvation and who is better placed to do that than the one and only former VP. I mean his BA credentials are bona vide!

    Isaiah spoke in chapter 18 and concluded in verse 7 thus concerning Cush.... "At that time gifts will be brought to the Lord Almighty

    from a people tall and smooth-skinned,
    from a people feared far and wide,
    an aggressive nation of strange speech,
    whose land is divided by rivers—

    the gifts will be brought to Mount Zion, the place of the Name of the Lord Almighty."

    I submit to all South Sudanese in and out of that country that it is time to apply verse 7 above to your situation and HE Kalonzo is the envoy.
