Kalonzo Musyoka Announces His Running Mate

Kalonzo said he decided to run after being let down by the Azimio alliance, where he had hoped to be Raila Odinga's running partner.

During the Monday press conference, Kalonzo was flanked by Baringo Senator Gideon Moi and former Devolution PS Andrew Sunkuli, who will be the former Vice President's running mate.

Sunkuli, according to Kalonzo, typified a politician who rose from the ground up and is respected for his ethics and leadership.

"Raila, my brother, is aware that I am naming my running mate. He came to my residence in an attempt to persuade me to accept his decision. We couldn't agree, so he said he'd pick Martha, and I said I'd pick my own running mate.

"Some have claimed that Gideon was sent to spy on us, but he is totally cooperating with us. My honest belief is that OKA will remain in its current form, and we will trade notes. We have a mission to save this country."

"Kenyans overwhelmingly seek an alternative to Kenya Kwanza and Azimio. How long will people demand that Kalonzo be the one to sacrifice, and then when I do, they botch up? I guarantee it.

This is despite Raila Odinga, the Azimio la Umoja One flagbearer, offering Kalonzo the position of Chief Cabinet Secretary. The Wiper party had already filed a lawsuit in court to overturn the Azimio One Kenya Alliance coalition agreement. In the next August 9 election, Kalonzo will now represent the Wiper party.
