Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka and ODM leader Raila Odinga have been asked to speed up the negotiations on their coalition so as not to give UDA an upper hand in the general elections.
Addressing the press in Nguluni, Matungulu sub-county of Machakos county, Peter Kilonzo Mutiso a Matungulu MP Aspirant noted that the wiper leader was entitled to negotiate in his own terms but the delay would give the other side a winning margin.
“Raila and Kalonzo need to find a common working ground failure to which they will give the other team (Kenya Kwanza) an easier ground to win the elections,” Peter said.
“The wiper leader has the right to negotiate for the best and the minimum irreducible demand should be Nairobi, Tana River, Taita Taveta, Mombasa, and Kwala counties gubernatorial seats should go to Wiper,” he added.
Peter further warned the Orange Democratic party not to go to the ballot with the mentality of how things went in 2007 rather they should be aware that dynamics have changed and 2022 would be different.
“The ODM must not go to the ballot with the mentality of 2007 votes, because dynamics have changed, for instance, Raila got almost all Rift Valley votes in 2007 and those votes were not there in 2013 and 2017, a clear indication that you can’t bank on certain regions without proper negotiations,” Peter went on.
Calls for Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka and ODM Leader Raila Odinga to join hands in the coming election have been made by several people with Kalonzo saying that ODM leader should honor their 2017 MOU.
