Following the Orange Democratic Movement party leader’s tour of Makueni County on Friday where he went to popularise his Azimio La Umoja initiative and told the masses that he had consulted with Kalonzo Musyoka who affirmed his belief in the tour and even sent him with his kind wishes, a top member of the One Kenya Alliance outfit OKA is now disputing this account, and accusing Raila Odinga of lying.
Amani National Congress party Nairobi Chapter Chairman Brian Mulama was speaking while appearing on Radio Jambo’s weekly political show Mazungumzo Wazi Wazi which was hosted by the station’s presenter Bramwell Mwololo. Alongside Mulama in the studio was lawyer and activist Brian Weke and United Democratic Alliance party member Willie Kamau.
Mulama claimed when Raila Odinga went to Makueni County he lied to residents of Wote by telling them he had met the Wiper Democratic Movement party leader Kalonzo Musyoka prior to the event. Mulama maintained that no such meeting had taken place since Kalonzo was firmly in OKA and would never engage in covert meetings in which he gives Raila his blessings to go to his backyard.
Raila Odinga said he spoke with his Wiper counterpart, Kalonzo Musyoka, before embarking on his trip to Wote, Makueni County on Friday.
Odinga said he informed Kalonzo of his Azimio la Umoja event at Wote, and that the Wiper chief told him he won’t be in a position to attend the function, but “asked me (Raila) to pass his greetings to you”.
The ODM boss said he had a lengthy conversation with Kalonzo on the phone on Thursday night.
All the Ukambani governors—Charity Ngilu (Kitui), Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni) and Alfred Mutua (Machakos) — attended the Azimio la Umoja event held at Wote Town in Makueni County.
Kalonzo Musyoka, who skipped the function, is on record saying he won’t relinquish his presidential bid for anyone else.
Musyoka and Odinga have worked together in the past, with the two forming a president-deputy president ticket in the 2013 and 2017 general elections. Their stab at the presidency was, however, unsuccessful, losing to President Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto in both elections.
