BY KORIR JUMA,CORRESPONDENT,KITUI,28TH DEC 2017-National Super Alliance (NASA) co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka says unless president Uhuru Kenyatta calls for sincere talks aimed at addressing the problem of electoral malpractices and deceit in the country he will be sworn in as Deputy President alongside Raila Odinga as President.
Wiper Party leader who spoke on Thursday at the home of the late Kitui West MP Francis Nyenze challenged President Kenyatta to urgently call for extensive dialogue to ensure lasting national unity.
If Uhuru abdicates his duty of uniting this nation, then don’t blame Raila and Kalonzo if they get sworn in,” said Kalonzo.
While terming Kenyatta’s refusal to dialogue as “insensitive”, the former Vice President said that the country is deeply divided and only talks on electoral justice between the main political players will bring an end to the current political impasse.
“The truth is that the presidential election was bungled and the country is polarized along tribal lines and we cannot proceed like this,” said Kalonzo.
Kalonzo also said NASA will not entertain any other talks apart from ensuring electoral justice and conducting a new poll all the while insisting NASA votes were stolen during the August 8th general election.
President Kenyatta has since dismissed any possibility of holding any dialogue with opposition Chief Raila Odinga on presidency insisting that he was legally elected and would rather have talks geared towards serving the nation but not on power sharing or presidency.
