Among those in the list for running mate hunt is Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua, seasoned politicians Peter Kenneth and Wiper party leader Kalonzo, whom insider insists, he is better pick to deputise Raila Odinga for third consecutive contest.
Following that, Homabay Township Member of Parliament Peter Opondo Kaluma, to his tweet asked Wiper insiders pushing hard for Raila- Kalonzo ticket to hold their horses.
MP Kaluma further said, running mate issue in Azimio should be left in hands of President Uhuru Kenyatta, candidate Raila Odinga and former Vice President to discuss.
"My brother Sen Mutula Kilonzo junior, Daniel Maanzo, Senator Wambua, Kathiani Member of Parliament Mbui Robert and MP Makali Mulu, please lets keep of this matter of running mate. Let President Uhuru Kenyatta, Kalonzo Musyoka and Raila Odinga talk and give us a running mate. We are not in their league, can't dictate them." Peter Kaluma said.
However, reacting to the notice, Senator Mutula Kilonzo junior says Wiper party position on running mate matter is well known. Adding, he reveals their allies are taking notes.
"In Wiper Democratic Kenya, we speak our minds regardless of the consequences. Our Position is known and our supporters are taking notes." Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo said.Courtesy
