    Kalonzo: Raila’s exit to AU will not crumble Azimio

    Wiper Democratic Party of Kenya ( WDPK) leader, Kalonzo Musyoka Friday said Azimio would stay intact even with the exit of its leader Raila Odinga.

    The Orange Democratic Party leader Raila Odinga is currently canvassing for the position of Chair of the African Union.

    Kalonzo said they are optimistic he will secure the job and gracefully exit to AU without causing fractures to the coalition.

    “The support for his candidature across the regional states remains intense. The indication of him winning is very high,” stated Musyoka at a press conference in Kisii.

    The former Vice President, however, was elusive on explaining his bid for presidency if Raila fails to clinch the AU chair seat and instead opts to vie in 2027.

    “We are not there yet, all of us in Azimio are currently unanimously optimistic that things would go according to script,” the Wiper Party boss stated.

    He vowed to shield Azimio from forces likely to bring disunity to the coalition

    “We are solidly united, not only in underpinning the Azimio leader’s search for the AU seat but also in ensuring unity of the coalition,” Musyoka said.

    He said they already knew the dynamics involved and were praying for Odinga to succeed.

    “We shall be intact, strong, and vibrant even when our leader leaves for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia,” Musyoka said.

    The Wiper Party leader spoke against inflation and castigated the delay by the government to release capitation funds to schools.

    Musyoka was speaking in Kisii as he wound up a two-day tour of the Gusii region.

    He was accompanied by Democratic Action Party ( DAP) leader, Eugene Wamalwa.

    Others were Julius Mawathe ( Embakasi South), Senator Agnes Kavindu (Machakos), and former Borabu lawmaker, Ben Momanyi.

    Kalonzo said Azimio will continue fighting for the housing levy through courts until Ruto cedes ground.

    Musyoka emphasized the importance of parliamentary and senate oversight before any state Corporation is privatized, citing the Nzoia sugar case where a long-term lease was preferred over privatization.

    With plans to raise funds through high taxes and housing levies, he urged both employers and employees to be vigilant against excessive taxation.

    “The media is being starved of advertising anything and I urge you to fight for your space,” Musyoka told the press.
