The information that is currently making its way across the airwaves suggests that Wiper party and kingpin Kalonzo Musyoka would soon be departing from Azimio.

Kennedy Mureithi, a senior political journalist in Kenya, had discovered Kalonzo's next move in advance of a news conference that was scheduled for 11 in the morning.
Earlier on, it was made clear that the camp of Kalonzo Musyoka intended to go to court in order to get out of the Azimio - OKA contract they were under.
The team said that they had intelligence on who Raila Odinga was likely to choose as his preferred running mate and that they shared this information with the public.
However, things appear to be heating up today as the wiper party leader declared Andrew Sunkuli. Kalonzo speaking at his Karen office has stated that he was speaking to Gedion Moi to see if he would accept to be his running partner. Gedion Moi has stated that he would accept to be Kalonzo's running mate.
On the other hand, Raila had offered Kalonzo Musyoka a position as prime minister, but Musyoka has turned it down and is now running for the highest office in the land. Raila is running for reelection.
The idea that Kalonzo could run for president as an independent candidate has sparked a significant amount of debate across the internet, with many users demanding that he either remain in the Azimio party or join the Kenya Kwanza party instead.
A number of years ago, Kalonzo Musyoka ran for president of Kenya but finished a distant third. Subsequently, he served as Raila's deputy on two occasions, during which time the two of them were defeated in elections by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.
