I Eat Watermelon, Not Kalonzo, Says Ole Sunkuli.

Andrew Ole Sunkuli, the Wiper Party’s presidential running mate, has defended his party’s flagbearer Kalonzo Musyoka, who has been dubbed a watermelon by opponents for his alleged political indecisiveness.

Ole Sunkuli, speaking on Citizen TV’s NewsNight show on Tuesday, called the parallel unfair, saying the fruit is too wonderful to have a bad meaning.

“I believe the term watermelon is derogatory to both Kalonzo and the fruit. When it comes to watermelon, it is a delicious fruit. “I’m not sure when it became a terrible fable,” he explained to host Waihiga Mwaura.

Sunkuli consequently stated that he will stick behind whatever decision the Wiper boss will make, if any, in terms of rejoining Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition party.

“If he (Kalonzo) decides to choose the country and work with Odinga, I will do the same to support his decision but that is not where we are at the moment. Right now we are in the race,” he said.

“I trust Kalonzo. He speaks from his heart, he means well for the country, and he meant it when he said he was in the race to the State House.”

Kalonzo, who is on a week-long tour of the United Kingdomsince last Friday, has previously attributed the ‘watermelon’ label to Azimio chief Raila Odinga and even stated that he is not offended by it because it is a good fruit.

“It was Raila who gave me the watermelon tag but there is no problem,” he said in a March interview, “He is my brother and it’s a beautiful fruit by the way.”

While dismissing the tag as unfair, he argued that his critics only bring up the ‘indecisiveness’ when he makes drastic political choices which they are opposed to.

“When it doesn’t suit them, I become a watermelon. This country wasn’t made to suit the aspirations of a few people, we all belong to Kenya,” said Kalonzo.

Kalonzo is currently under pressure from Wiper leaders to return to the Azimio coalition which he recently ditched after missing out on the running mate slot which was handed to NARC Kenya leader Martha Karua.

The party’s leaders on Monday said they have resolved to work with the Odinga-led coalition under ‘structured dialogue.’
