Wiper Party leaders have urged Kalonzo Musyoka to work with the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition under ‘structured dialogue.’ to resolve the ongoing stalemate.
The announcement was made by the party’s organizing secretary Robert Mbui on Monday during a meeting at Stoni Athi, Machakos County to chat about the way forward as a party.
This comes just a week after Musyoka unveiled Sunkuli as his running mate in the upcoming August General Election and has not been campaigning since the announcement was made public.
“We want to be part of the new Kenya going forward but we need structured discussions as what is being offered is only in the media. We want Azimio to know that the issue is about Wiper as a party and not Kalonzo as people have made it to be,” he said.
Mr. Mbui ruled out the possibility of the Wiper party working with the Kenya Kwanza team led by the Deputy President William Ruto despite the Wiper leader being lured to join the coalition termed as for the willing and where he would be treated with the respect that the former Vice president deserves.
“What is for sure is that we cannot work with the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, that’s out of the question,” Mbui said.
Among the leaders present were Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo, Stephen Mule, Thaddeus Zambia, Joshua Kimilu, and Makueni Speaker Douglas Mbilu, among others.
Kalonzo defected from the Azimio-One Kenya coalition after his demand to be named as the running mate for the Azimio presidential flagbearer was not met hence forcing his exit from the coalition to run as a presidential candidate in the forthcoming general elections.
