Friday, May 13, 2022 –Wiper Party boss Kalonzo Musyoka will run for presidency should Raila Odinga fail to name him his running mate..
Makueni lawmaker Daniel Maanzo made these revelations on Friday May 13 saying their Wiper Party had already prepared enough signatures in that regard.
“In the event that is not there, the law does not stop him from running. In the event Raila and President Uhuru Kenyatta change their mind, we will run on our own.
“We have collected all the signatures and they are ready. On the May 16 running mate naming deadline, we cannot miss that, we have identified a suitable running mate for Kalonzo,” Maanzo stated.
He clarified that their move to match to Statehouse like Odinga and Ruto was now unstoppable and everything was set going forward.
The MP argued that their support for Odinga was only going to fruition if Kalonzo was going to be respected to deputize Odinga.
Maanzo went on to warn that Raila may suffer a major blow should Kalonzo quit Azimio because Ukambani votes will have gone to his rival, Dr. William Ruto.
This development is coming barely a day after the Noah Wekesa-led selection panel handed Odinga 3 names to choose from.
