– Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka will not be sworn in anytime soon – deputy party leader Farah Maalim has declared
– Maalim was speaking in an interview where he expressed that the controversial Raila Odinga oath was the beginning of NASA's downfall
– His remarks came at the back of unconfirmed reports that Kalonzo was ready to take an oath on January 30
Wiper Deputy Party leader Farah Mallim has refuted claims that Kalonzo Musyoka would be sworn in as the People’s deputy President as earlier anticipated.
Maalim seemed to suggest that the National Super Alliance was suffering from a potential meltdown ever since the controversial “swearing in” ceremony of leader Raila Odinga.
NASA deputy Kalonzo Musyoka was conspicuously missing from the inauguration, bringing to doubt his future in the alliance yet again.
However, Kalonzo had come forth to give his reasons for missing the controversial event while maintaining that he was firmly behind the opposition.
According to Farah Maalim, however, Kalonzo was not planning to be sworn in at an anticipated date.
“I don’t see Kalonzo being sworn in… It is a pity… I would have loved if he (Kalonzo) had taken a firm position from the word go and said, 'sorry I am a lawyer I don’t want to do this',” Maalim was quoted by Standard.
He further alleged that the entire oath issue was Raila Odinga’s idea and Kalonzo and the other co principals were never really in full agreement.
“All along, Kalonzo, Wetang’ula and Mudavadai were opposed to the idea of a swearing-in ceremony,” He added.
Farah Maalim, a former Deputy Speaker’s remarks came at the back of reports that Kalonzo was finally ready to stamp his mark and get sworn in on February 28.
The Wiper leader is however yet to make any formal announcement
