Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has ruled out working with Deputy President William Ruto or Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga ahead of the August 9 General Election, instead announcing a new coalition with Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua.
He also stated that he was willing to offer ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi a position as running mate. He reiterated that he was committed to running for the State House until the bitter end.
The former vice president is still smarting from the squabbles that rocked the One Kenya Alliance last weekend, when Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetang'ula joined Dr Ruto. He regretted the decision but wished the two good luck in their political endeavors.
“Those who are talking of two horses are misinformed. This race is not about horses. Kalonzo is now stronger. We shall not relent. I have now come as a dangerous buffalo and ready to ensure Kenya is transformed,” he said.
“I know I cannot walk this journey alone. I’ll negotiate for myself the future of the Kamba community and this country,” he said, revealing he was in talks with National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi and Ms Karua for a broad coalition that will also include Kanu chairman Gideon Moi and UDP leader Cyrus Jirongo.
