In a statement posted on his official social media pages, the former National Assembly leader of the majority wondered where the ODM leader will get the required votes to propel him to the statehouse.
The Tanga Tanga lawmaker said Raila has lost all his National Super Alliance (NASA) and Coalition for Reform and Democracy (CORD) co-principals Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), and Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya).
“Raila has finally lost all his NASA/CORD co-principals; because they can never trust him. No Kalonzo, no Mudavadi, no Wetangula. So where are the votes?” Duale posed.
Duale, an ardent supporter of Deputy President William Ruto said Kalonzo’s exit from Azimio has made the work easier for the Kenya Kwanza team to form the next government.
While exiting Azimio, Kalonzo said he will vie for the presidency on a Wiper party ticket where he will be facing off with Raila, Deputy President William Ruto, and over 50 other candidates who have expressed interest to succeed outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The former vice president wished Raila and Martha Karua all the best stating that he agreed with the opposition chief to vie for the country’s top seat.
“I wish him (Raila Odinga) and his running mate, my sister Martha Karua the best. I know my country well,
“That decision will be met by overwhelming opposition. Therefore, we have agreed to go our separate ways and compare notes as we move,” said Kalonzo at the SKM Command centre in Karen, Nairobi.
