Wiper Party leader stands at cross roads if the coalition talks between ODM and Jubilee Party bears fruits ahead of the 2022 General Election.
Kalonzo, who has insisted that he will not support Raila Odinga’s presidency for the 4th time will be pushed to a corner by the coalition as he will technically be left with no political significance..
He will either have to accept being Raila’s running mate or forget the current Wiper party’s working relationship with with Uhuru Kenyatta.
Even though Kalonzo’s Wiper has a Memorandum of Understanding(MOU) with Jubile party, ODM’s entry into coalition talks with the ruling party poses a danger for Wiper.
Speaking to People Daily, Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju said that their agreement with Wiper is still valid, and it is premature to conclude what will happen if ODM joins the bandwagon.
“The cooperation with Wiper is still valid. It will be premature to talk about what will happen. If I knew, then I would not be in politics. Raila has not declared he will vie for presidency,” he said.
Already the collaboration between Uhuru and Raila is sending chills in Kalonzo’s spine. Last week, he vowed not to support Raila Odinga again.
According to Kalonzo, he would rather retire from politics than contest as Raila’s running mate once again.
The affirmation from Kalonzo sparked reactions from ODM leader Raila Odinga, who accused him of throwing tantrums without no good reason.
“Some people are barking that they will not support Raila, let them relax, I have not declared that I will vie neither have I asked for their support,” he said.
Speaking in Gatanga on June 20, Kalonzo Musyoka stood firm to his words, calling on Raila Odinga to honour the agreenment between NASA principals.
“I will continue barking until the leaders learn to respect and honour any agreements made either in public or in private.There must be integrity in politics and leaders must learn to stick to their promises without shifting goals,” he said.
