With reports that there are ongoing talks between Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, and the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance leadership, in bid to have him re-join the camp, Machakos Wiper gubernatorial candidate Wavinya Ndeti has slammed those she claimed were forcing Kalonzo back to Azimio without a structured plan.
Kalonzo bolted out of the Azimio wing on Monday after failing to secure the Azimio's running mate slot that was assigned to Narc Kenya Party leader Martha Karua, after which he announced his State House bid and further unveiled his running mate, Mr Andrew Sunkuli.
Speaking with K24 on Thursday, Ndeti argued that despite Kalonzo saying that he will be taking time off politics to re-strategize and plan his next move, some leaders whom she did not disclose followed him to his Yatta residence and are compelling him to go back to Azimio.
"We respect what Kalonzo said and did, but he told us that there will be talks, so let's be patient and wait to see what those negotiations will bring forth."
"Hakuna haja ya watu kumfuata Kalonzo uku Machakos na kumshtumu, hao ni wale watu wanaongezea chumvi kwa vidonda,' There is no need of people coming to Machakos to force Kalonzo, those are people who will be making things harder," said Ndeti.
Citizen TV reported that Kanu's Chairman Gideon Moi and other leaders within Azimio's inner circle almost spent their whole Thursday trying to come up with a common ground of convincing Kalonzo back to Raila's side.
Several political experts hold the view that should Kalonzo go for the presidency, Raila will not get Ukambani votes, and chances are high that there will be a run-off come August.
