Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said the agreement they signed at KICC was not smoothly done.
Speaking to KTN News at his Tseikuru home, Kitui County, on Monday, March 14, Kalonzo said there are doubts about the transparency of the process.
He added that most of the parties were not aware of what they signed.
Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka revealed that parties were hurriedly presented with two documents to sign.
“If I asked all those party secretary-generals present SGs what they affixed their signatures to, nobody knows,” Kalonzo said.
According to Kalonzo, the ODM Director of Elections Junet Muhammed introduced a second paper requesting that the parties nominate Raila as Azimio la Umoja’s presidential candidate.
The former Vice President indicated that his party refused to sign that section of the deal since the coalition was to be called Azimio One Kenya Alliance under the previous arrangement.
He stated that he and his OKA co-principals would be retreating to evaluate the agreement’s legal intricacies.
“I still want to have a meeting with my fellow principals and our lawyers, including myself to reflect on that technicality,” he said.
During the ceremony, about 30 political parties including the Wiper party, officially signed the coalition agreement committing to work with Azimio la Umoja at KICC.
The secretary generals of the various parties also signed a commitment document to support Raila Odinga’s candidature.
It was proposed that they sign at a later time because President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila were late for a rally in Jacaranda.
