Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has responded to Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga following his ‘barking’ remarks.
While speaking at a church service in Muranga county on Sunday, June 20, 2021, Kalonzo accused his NASA counterpart of failing to honour the coalition agreement they signed prior to the 2017 election.
”If you have breach of trust kama mke na bwana wakikosana when you find your partner in the act inakuwa breach of trust Vibaya sana,” Kalonzo said.
According to the former Vice President, the NASA coalition agreement stated that he was to be the running mate in 2017, and then Raila to support Kalonzo in 2022.
“I’m challenging my fellow leaders to live in accordance with what we proclaim publicly and more so in writing if this is the coalition agreement of Jubilee or NASA and especially a written agreement honour it,” Kalonzo stated.
The wiper leader who has since joined the One Kenya Alliance comprising ANC Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi, KANU’s Gideon Moi and Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula however has a co-operation agreement with the Jubilee party.
“We have a cooperation agreement with Jubilee party whose party leader is President Kenyatta if others want to join they are most welcome because nikama building bridges tuunganishe kila mtu…ideally political parties collate to get political power, mimi siwezi kurudi nyuma,” Kalonzo said.
This comes after the Jubilee party through its Secretary General Raphael Tuju revealed that it is working on an alliance with ODM to field a single presidential candidate in 2022.
While confirming that the ODM and Jubilee talks were at an advanced stage, Jubilee secretary general Raphael Tuju said like-minded political parties would be welcomed this as his ODM counterpart Edwin Sifuna dismisses Musyoka’s demands.
“An anxious bride should wait for a proposal nobody has proposed to him,” Sifuna said.
