Kalonzo claims secret pact with Raila.

Kalonzo Musyoka, the leader of the Wiper Democratic Party (WDP), has claimed that he made a secret pact with Raila Odinga. The agreement details are that the Orange Democratic Party’s leader will pull forces with Kalonzo in 2022’s general election year.

This pact is said to have been done without the involvement of the other NASA (National Super Alliance) party leaders Musalia Mudavadi, Isaac Ruto, and Moses Wetangula.

The Nasa coalition was formed in 2017 and consisted of Chama Cha Mashinani, Amani National Congress, and Fork Kenya. After the infamous handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and its leader Raila Odinga, it was termed dead before they clinched power.

Mr. Kalonzo Musyoka has said that he cannot disclose details of the pact, calling it confidential. He says the arrangement was made expressly, but he was not free to talk about it.

Kalonzo is also said to be pursuing a coalition agreement with Jubilee. He has been keen on working with the ‘kieleweke’ group that is allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta and dismissed any affiliation to the ‘tangatanga’ side of the deputy president William Ruto.

WHAT PACT?

ODM leadership, including party leader Raila Odinga and the secretary-general of ODM Edwin Sifuma, have vehemently denied any secret pact between him and Kalonzo. They say they do not know of any agreement reached by any leader from the Nasa coalition, let alone Kalonzo Musyoka.

They have called this a political stunt where Kalonzo Musyoka wants to ride on Raila’s name in order to benefit from the handshake.

Kalonzo Musyoka has been accused of playing middle politics. He has previously been called a watermelon due to this reputation. He has also earned the nickname of “head of kati kati politics.”

As 2022 fast approaches, the battle lines are ready to be drawn, and alliances formed to reach a winning formula. Kenyans should gear up for new partnerships and old enemies joining up for the age-old political play.
