Kalonzo Musyoka, leader of the Wiper Party, has explained why he decided to withdraw from the senate and the speaker’s race, says the decision was after he met with senators affiliated with the Azimio La Umoja alliance late at night.

He also explained that Uhuru and Raila supported his withdrawal after Azimio learned that election irregularities might impact the the election.

“The decision was not impromptu. I was well guided by my party and the Azimio top leadership after we realised the process had been marred with bribery. We decided that we needed to keep it clean and in that case, step out of the race,” he explained.

He further dispelled reports that he might join Ruto’s Kenya kwanza side, saying his in Azimio La Umoja to stay.

“I have not had any consultation with Ruto and Kenya Kwanza. Those are frivolous allegations. I am taking a strategic retreat so that I can plan my political future which is still bright,” he added
