You Cannot run for Presidency, Registrar of Parties tells Kalonzo

The Office of the Registrar of Political Parties has asked the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) not to clear Kalonzo Musyoka to run for the presidency on a Wiper party ticket as the party is still registered under the Raila Odinga’s led coalition.

Kalonzo, however, is said to be exploring loopholes in the agreement and is hell-bent on frustrating the Azimio after the coalition’s flag bearer, Raila Odinga, settled on Martha Wangari Karua, as his running mate.

Before leaving Azimio and announcing his candidature, Kalonzo had threatened to walk out if Raila failed to choose him as his running mate.

“There is no power-sharing structure, which is the basis of any negotiations or any coalition arrangement of working together. Without a power-sharing agreement, which is registered with the Registrar of Political Parties, everything else is a nullity.

“Kalonzo is a reasonable man who wants the best for Kenya,” Makueni MP, Dan Maanzo, a close ally of Kalonzo, argued.

Nonetheless, he kept his options open and insiders within Azimio argued that he was willing to rejoin the coalition if his conditions are met.
