Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has dismissed reports that he will support ODM leader Raila Odinga for the presidency in the 2022 General Election.
In an Exclusive interview with NTV the former Vice President vowed he can never contest as Raila Odinga’s running mate again.
“I am not a weakling… Raila and I have never sat to discuss 2022. I will be the most stupid person on earth to support Raila Odinga for president for the third time without a measure of reciprocity,” Kalonzo Musyoka said.
Kalonzo Musyoka contested for the Presidency as Raila Odinga’s running mate during the 2013, 2017 General Election.
Kalonzo’s declaration comes after Raila Odinga said that they would work together in 2022.
Speaking during the burial of former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile, Raila said that he is currently inseparable from Kalonzo.
This was after Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu called on the two leaders to work together ahead of 2022, failure to which William Ruto will easily defeat them and become president.
Even though Kalonzo’s new declaration may sound as a change of tune from the Kibwezi discussions, it is important to note that Raila Odinga has not officially declared that he will contest for the Presidency in 2022.
In the meeting, President Uhuru called on NASA leaders to unite and revive their coalition.
The Head of State said that he would support the candidate that the coalition will settle on.
Uhuru expressed his desire to leave the country in safe hands, that is of the NASA coalition.
This sounded as an act of betrayal for Ruto, who expected President Uhuru to return his favour and endorse him for the presidency.
