Kalonzo Refuses The Cabinet Secretary Post Given By Raila, Officially Declares His Presidential Bid

Kalonzo Musyoka, the head of the Wiper Party, has declared his candidacy for President in the August 9 election. After being let down by the Azimio alliance, where he had planned to be Raila Odinga's running mate, Kalonzo decided to run.

"My brother Raila is aware of my decision to name my running partner." He came to my house to try to persuade me to agree with his decision. We couldn't agree, so he said he'd choose Martha and I said I'd choose my own running partner.

"Gideon may have been assigned to spy on us, but he is completely on our side. OKA, in my honest opinion, will continue in its current shape, and we will share notes. Our aim is to save our country."

"Kenya Kwanza and Azimio are not particularly popular among Kenyans. How long do people expect Kalonzo to make the sacrifice before they botch up when I do? I pledge to work for gender balance in government."

"Kenyans must rethink their mindset. In fact, over the next week, I'm going to meditate and think about these critical issues."

The Wiper party has already filed a legal challenge to the coalition deal.
