Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka at a press conference in Nairobi brought to light a secret agreement made between the former vice president and ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga back in 2017.

The pact would see that Raila Odinga would not run for presidency after the last elections whether he won or not. He would have to back Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka. He explained that only Raila Odinga, Prof Makau Mutua, Prof Kivutha Kibwana and himself signed the contract.

Azimio la Umoja is set to disclose their preferred presidential candidate in ten days time with Mr.Musyoka making it clear he will only join ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga under the condition he backs him for the August 9 presidential polls.

Newly appointed Raila Odinga’s 2022 presidential campaign spokesperson Prof Makau Mutua had strong replies for the OKA principal talking to the Nation yesterday.

“We are going to win the election whether Mr.Musyoka joins us or not,” he stated.

“It is forgone conclusion that Mr.Odinga will be the presidential candidate of Azimio and the other main presidential candidate in this country being Mr.Ruto. Mr.Musyoka ought to contemplate that and then negotiate with that understanding in mind.” he added.

Mr.Musyoka claimed that Mr.Odinga had committed an irreparable material breach of their agreement by accepting nomination of the Orange Democratic Movement to run for president.

“My brother has the option of abiding by the terms of this live binding, legal agreement and thereby emerging as a true, national, regional and indeed, continental democratic hero, or he chooses to act in utter defiance and repudiation of the agreement and thereby compound the trust deficit,” he said.

He also blamed Prof Mutua, the overseer of the document, for failing to organize meetings between him and Mr.Odinga also claiming he breached the pact by joining Raila Odinga’s campaign team.

Prof Mutua refused to confirm the existence of the pact and continued to affirm that the pact would have been terminated with the dissolution of NASA if it indeed existed.

“It is of no use really in the current political dispensation and the political climate for us to litigate discussions that took place in 2017,” he told the Nation
