Kalonzo Musyoka, the leader of the Wiper Party, has disclosed bickering within the Azimio One Kenya coalition, which could result to Raila Odinga, the leader of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), rejecting him as his running mate.



Kalonzo indicated in Taita Taveta on Friday, May 13 that Raila is hesitant to choose him as his vice presidential candidate because of ethnic divides within Azimio, which have attempted to split the alliance.


The Wiper leader however claimed that within the alliance, there is a conspiracy to deprive him of the running mate post, with one section advocating for a Mount Kenya nominee.

He noted that stealing from him the deputy President post would have political outcomes on Raila's presidential submission. 


“There is a scheme to deny me the running mate position due to ethnic considerations. Unlike others who have been proposed, I am the only candidate who will ensure Azimio beats our competitors," the Wiper leader asserted.


"I decided to shelve my presidential ambitions for the sake of the ODM leader. We have also walked the journey together with him and if he decides to abandon me at this hour of need, then he will not win the presidency."

 
“The ODM leader should make a wise decision. If he allows himself to be misled, he will not win the presidency," he added.
