Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has announced that he will be vying for presidency on an independent ticket after the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance Coalition leader Raila Odinga failed to name him as his running mate.
On Monday, May 16, ODM leader Raila Odinga picked Martha ‘Iron Lady’ Karua as his running leaving the wiper leader disappointed as he was eyeing for the position.
In a bid to beat the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission’s (IEBC) deadline for submitting running mates, the former vice president announce he will be vying for the top seat and unveiled Andrew Sunkuli as his running mate.
” My name, as we speak, is before IEBC as a presidential candidate for Wiper Democratic Movement,” said Kalonzo.
He further explained why he is ditching Azimio stating that Raila visited him at his house and tried to convince him to ditch his plans and remain in the coalition and he remained unshaken.
“My brother Raila knows I am naming my running mate. He came to my house to try and convince me to accept his choice. We did not agree and he said he would choose Martha and I told him I would choose my own running mate,” said Kalonzo.
