Kalonzo Urges Electorate to Shun Independent Candidates

Bwire Marvin.

After the political party’s primaries, aspirants who never made it in the exercise chose to pursue their aspirations through the independent route. Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka terms this as unconstitutional and impossible.

Kalonzo’s wiper party lost key members including its chairman David Musila who unsuccessfully sought to unseat Kitui governor Julius Malombe. He says he respects such member’s decisions but urged the electorate to shun such candidates and instead vote for wiper candidates to bolster their bargaining power.

The NASA presidential running mate did not spare the jubilee government which he accused of using the ongoing acute shortage of food as a bait for votes. Concerning the contentious IEBC debate on the oppositions planned presidential poll results in the parallel tallying center, Musyoka says it remains the core mandate of the electoral body to monitor the polls but insisted the tallying center only serves the accountability purpose.

Kalonzo was addressing congregants at Mlolongo. The Wiper party leader was accompanied by Makueni governor Kivutha Kibwana, Wiper Machakos gubernatorial candidate Wavinya Ndeti among other leaders.
