Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka

Kalonzo applied the same antics during the National Rainbow Alliance Coalition of Kenya (NARC-). The antics paid off at the time when he secured the Vice President’s slot under President Mwai Kibaki after the disputed and violent 2007 general elections

The Wiper party leader also a former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has once again proven that he is an unreliable and self-centred politician; this is after he presented papers to the IEBC to vie as President during the August general elections.

The former Vice President’s greed for a top office manifested itself recently when he persistently demanded to be picked as Deputy President by Raila Odinga before he settled on Martha Karua as his DP nominee. Mr Kalonzo had issued threats after threats to the extent that the issue became a consistent feature on social media sites, he however came out empty-handed.

Kalonzo applied the same antics during the National Rainbow Alliance Coalition of Kenya (NARC-). The antics paid off at the time when he secured the Vice President’s slot under President Mwai Kibaki after the disputed and violent 2007 general elections.

Within Azimio Alliance there are more than twenty political parties each with powerful politicians. In ODM, apart from party leader Raila Odinga, there are Governors Joho of Mombasa and Wycliffe Oparanya of Kakamega among many others who wanted to deputize Mr Odinga.

Even after being offered a plum and influential ministerial post in Raila’s government, the Wiper leader still went ballistic even after having lengthy private meetings with Raila and President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House

In Jubilee Alliance, President Uhuru Kenyatta’s party was keen to land the slot of Odinga’s running mate but they also missed out. The party’s top hierarchy had declared during their Annual Delegates Convention (ADC) at the Kenyatta Convention Centre (KICC) that the party would not field a Presidential candidate but would back Odinga’s bid.

Even after being offered a plum and influential ministerial post in Raila’s government, the Wiper leader still went ballistic even after having lengthy private meetings with Raila and President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House.

The matter went out of hand to the extent that Wiper Party’s national leadership went public against their leader saying that as far as they were concerned they were firmly in the Azimio Alliance in the quest for the country’s top leadership. That they were going to toe the Azimio leadership line to the end and expected their leader Kalonzo to toe the line too, instead Kalonzo filed papers with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) complete with the required million shillings presidential fees to contest as Wiper’s Presidential Candidate 2022.

The Wiper party leader’s name was initially missing when IEBC first released the list of cleared Presidential candidates, he was granted more time to present his papers which he did on Sunday and was cleared to run. Experts now say that Kalonzo should swallow his pride and greed and go back to Azimio, otherwise he will become politically irrelevant as a leader.
