Kalonzo changes tune,says he knew the contents of a deal signed between his party and Azimio la umoja coalition

BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,18TH MARCH 2022-Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka now says he is aware of the deal his party and others signed with the Azimio la Umoja movement at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre.

Speaking on Friday, he said that only him, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta know details of the deal.

“The only people who know all the contents of the Azimio – One Kenya Agreement are President Uhuru Kenyatta, Rt Hon Prime Minister @RailaOdinga and myself,” he said.

“Nothing is agreed until it is agreed on the Azimio – One Kenya Grand Alliance.”

Kalonzo’s remarks come barely a week after he said that they were not aware of what they signed at KICC.

Speaking to KTN News, Kalonzo said there are doubts about the transparency of the process, stating that most of the parties were not aware of what they signed.

He revealed that during the meeting at the KICC, parties were hurriedly presented with two documents to sign.

“If I asked all those party secretary-generals present SGs what they affixed their signatures to, nobody knows,” Kalonzo said.

Kalonzo noted that the ODM Director of Elections Junet Muhammed introduced a second document to have the parties propose Raila as the presidential candidate of Azimio la Umoja.

The former Vice President noted that his party declined to sign that part of the agreement as the earlier agreement stated that the coalition would be named Azimio One Kenya Alliance.

He noted that he and his OKA co-principals would be retreating to review the legal technicalities of the agreement.

“I still want to have a meeting with my fellow principals and our lawyers, including myself to reflect on that technicality,” he said.
