Wiper leader Dr. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka has maintained he will not go for any political interview.
Speaking in Mlolongo, Machakos County, on Thursday morning 5th May 2022, the former Vice President said he will only meet with ODM leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta during which they will agree on the running mate issue.
“I have tremendous respect for the panel that has been appointed. But they should understand me. I am not arrogant and rude. It is the people who say that the process is not for me because I have been a vice president and a running mate two times,” Kalonzo said.
“With due respect, I won’t go for the interview. A political process is a political process. There is no need for an interview, let us sit with Uhuru and Raila and talk over the matter.”
Kalonzo instead said the talks between him and President Uhuru and Raila Odinga will be key in solving the running mate stalemate.
At the same time, Kalonzo has asked the UDA team to stop speaking on his behalf and pretend to defend him.
“Let the UDA not defend me, I don’t want them to defend me. I want to ensure the UDA party fails and Ruto goes home,” he said.
“What we want is to save Kenya from corruption. One who has failed Kenya is known. I was Kibaki’s Vice President and I was loyal to his leadership. In fact, he retired in peace.”
