The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance has threatened to withdraw the candidature of Philip Kaloki as gubernatorial running mate for Nairobi City County.
This has been revealed by Azimio Nairobi County Campaign Chairman Tim Wanyonyi who says any step out by Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka will see Kaloki out dropped indefinitely.
He says the Azimio Coalition will not be presented by a person from another political divide.
“We have made it very clear that should our friend Kalonzo decide to run as he has threatened then we shall have no option but to get another running mate to represent us in Nairobi… We are prepared and Martha Karua’s candidature has steered our campaigns and fallacy that was there that we can’t do without Kalonzo,” said Wanyonyi.
Those who could possibly be fronted to replace Kaloki include former Kasarani Member of Parliament Elizabeth Ongoro, former Nairobi town clerk Philip Kisia.
Meanwhile, Kalonzo is set to appear before the IEBC after he presented his documents for the race.
According to National Elections Board chairperson Wiper Party Agatha Solitei they presented their documents in excel form as required by IEBC and Kalonzo is firmly on the presidential race.
“Take note that His Excellency’s documents were presented to IEBC for 33 counties ( against the required 24 Counties) on 25/5/22 on hard and soft copy as specified by the IEBC in their letter of 19/5/22.The National Elections Board (NEB) wishes to confirm that we have complied with this requirement as we have ALREADY SUBMITTED the soft copy of our Candidate’s supporters in Excel format today, 28/5/22 which is well within the deadline set by IEBC of 29/5/22,’’ she said.
“We also wish to take this opportunity to thank the IEBC for their fairness and objectivity in this matter after having assessed the facts at hand. We ask the Citizens of good will and supporters of His Excellency Hon Steven Kalonzo Musyoka to rest assured that His Excellency is still in the race to contest for the Pesidency of the Republic of Kenya,” Solitei added.
