Kalonzo Musyoka will run for the president if he is not picked as Raila Odinga’s running mate, this is according to Wiper Party leaders.
Speaking during a rally in Taveta town on Friday, May 13, Kitui Senator Enock Wambua said that not picking Kalonzo as number two will be another betrayal orchestrated by Raila.
“Nataka niseme wazi…mtafute mtu was kuchezea siyo Kalonzo Musyoka. Mchezo was paka na panya tuling’ang’ana nayo kitambo sana. Kama Kalonzo Musyoka will not be the deputy president of Raila Odinga, Raila Odinga will not be the president.
“Sisi tumebakisha siku mbili, kesho na jumapili. On Monday, all presidential candidates wanapeleka majina ya there running mates. Kama jina la running mate wa Azimio One Kenya haitakuwa ya Kalonzo Musyoka, basi sisi tutapeleka jina ya running mate wa Kalonzo Musyoka,” said Senator Wambua.
People plotting my downfall
In an event that shows signs of a possible fallout in Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition, the Wiper leader claimed there are people who are working day and night for his downfall.
“Jana nilikuwa nchi jirani ya South Sudan, nikijaribu kuwashawishi watengeze jeshi moja la kitaifa. President ana jeshi lake, vice president ana jeshi lake, na mimi najaribu kuwaunganisha. Sasa mimi nauliza jameni, kama Kalonzo anasaidia South Sudan, nawezaje kushindwa kumsaidia Raila?” Said Kalonzo.
Rumours are rife that Azimio will pick Narc Kenya Party leader Martha Karua as Raila’s running mate ahead of the August 9 presidential race.
