In the event that he is not selected as the running mate, Kalonzo Musyoka, the leader of the Wiper Party, is finalizing his resignation as a deputy for the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition. He is doing this in preparation for the possibility that he would not be chosen.
In the form of letters that he has sent to all of his friends and members of the Wiper Party, Kalonzo has extended invites to attend the meeting and has asked them to join him there. According to a message that was delivered early in the morning by Robert Mbiu, who works as the Organising Secretary for Wiper, a "very significant announcement" would take place today, May 16, at 11 am. This information was included in the message that was sent. A message that was sent out by Wiper's Organising Secretary was the vehicle via which the former Vice President disseminated this information to the people who follow him.
"You are warmly invited by the leader of our party, His Excellency Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka, to attend an announcement that is of the highest relevance this morning, May 16th, 2022, at 11 am, at the Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka command center. We kindly ask that you prioritize your arrival, "The message was merely skimmed for a short while.
It is instructive to consider the schedule of the news conference in light of the fact that the head of the ODM, Raila Odinga, will reveal his choice for running mate at 11 a.m. at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre, also known as the KICC. It would seem that Kalonzo will hold off on making his decision on whether or not he would take the role of Raila's deputy until he hears back from the Azimio team. Everyone is keeping their fingers crossed since the result of the much-anticipated announcement will determine what he does next, so everyone is keeping their fingers crossed.
Kalonzo had given the order to his legal team, which was being directed by Dan Maanzo, a member of the Makueni County Parliament, to go directly to the High Court in order to vigorously challenge the coalition agreement that they had with Azimio. This was done in order to ensure that they were able to win the case. Dan Maanzo stated to the media the day before that the coalition agreement was illegal and in violation of the constitution, and that they would ask the court to destroy the 26-member alliance so that each party may go its own way. This was in response to Maanzo's comments made the day before regarding the coalition agreement.
Kalonzo plans to carry the contest all the way to the vote if Raila does not pick him to be his running mate in the event that he is running for president. His party claims that they have already chosen who will serve as their deputy, and that they will submit that individual's name to the IEBC today.
