Wiper party asks Kalonzo to reconsider his presidential candidacy move

Wiper party officials held a meeting on Monday at Stoni Athi in Machakos County which was attended by at least 500 party aspirants. The party officials want Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to reconsider his decision to run for presidency in the coming general elections. Party vice-chairman Mutula Kilonzo Jnr was quoted by Nation saying that Azimio issues will be discussed.

"We need to consolidate and strategize how to keep competition away and campaign plan. I expect the Azimio issues will be brought up," Mutula said.

Instead, the officials want Kalonzo to return and exhaust all the dispute resolution mechanisms within the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party. The possibility of this happening is low as Wiper Party leader has presented the signatures of his presidential bid to IEBC. This further complicates Azimio la Umoja coalition to woo Kalonzo to rejoin the coalition.

Should Kalonzo push through with his decision to vie for the presidency or rather rejoin Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition? Share your thoughts in the comments.
