Kalonzo negotiated with Uhuru, not Raila, Elachi tells off Wiper leader

Kalonzo negotiated with Uhuru, not Raila, Elachi tells off Wiper leader into dragging Raila into an agreement he wasn’t part of.

Beatrice Elachi, a former Nairobi County speaker, has chastised Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka for allegedly dragging the ODM Party leader into an arrangement he was not a part of.

Elachi stated in an interview with K24 TV on Tuesday that Raila was not involved in the negotiations between Kalonzo and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Elachi further questioned the agreement between Kalonzo and the President.

“Kalonzo sat with the President and negotiated and not with the former Prime Minister,” Elachi said.

 “Kalonzo said he cannot negotiate with Raila and so he negotiated with the President. What was this agreement you had with the President? You are dragging Raila into something he was never part of,” Elachi said.

Elachi said Kalonzo ought to have joined the Azimio la Umoja coalition with clean hands and work harmoniously to ensure Raila becomes the next president, instead of clinging to the running mate debate.

Kalonzo has already declared his interest in the running mate position ahead of the August polls.

He claimed some people are conspiring round the clock to lock him out of the number two post as the Raila Odinga-led outfit seeks to form the next government. 

“They are busy conspiring who will be running mate and who will not be running mate. Please help them to change and know that what God has determined no human being will stop it.”

Kalonzo chastised those who insisted Raila’s running mate come from the Mt Kenya region. 

When the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya selects a running partner, Kalonzo said his ethnic background should not be an issue.

On Sunday, April 18, Kalonzo stated that he believes he is qualified for the role since he speaks fluent Kimeru.
