Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju has called on all former opposition leaders to rally their support behind Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka‘s 2022 presidential bid.
Speaking at the Wiper National Delegates Conference at Kasarani, the Jubilee SecretaryGeneral expressed his pleasure after seeing all the opposition leaders convene together as we head into the General Election.
“There is hope when you see Gideon Moi, Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetang’ula, Charity Ngilu, and Raila Odinga together,
“If they all decide to support Kalonzo this matter will be over and done with,” Raphael Tuju said.
Opposition leaders Raila Odinga (ODM), Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), and Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya) worked together in the 2017 elections under the National Super Alliance (NASA).
However, the opposition principals fell out over sharing of political party’s fund as well as Raila’s refusal to support either of them in the upcoming 2022 presidential election.
In his five-point agenda on Thursday, November 25, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka said his aim is to unify the country.
The Wiper leader said he would push for free secondary education, which he described as a society ‘equalizer’ if elected the fifth President.
Kalonzo who offered to be Raila’s running in two of the previous General Election has on several occasions vowed not to play second fiddle to the ODM leader again.
Speaking at the same event, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga weighed in on the possibility of working with Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka ahead of the 2022 election.
Raila who was among the dignitaries invited to witness Kalonzo’s nomination to run for the presidency on the Wiper ticket said their paths shall surely meet again.
“I am sure what Kalonzo (Musyoka) wants is what Raila wants. Going forward our roads will meet again. Come December 9, 2021, I will speak,” Raila said.
