Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has given his clearest indications yet that he would be in the President Uhuru Kenyatta succession race to the end.
Musyoka dismissed assertions that the One Kenya Alliance leaders were being whipped to support ODM leader Raila Odinga.
The former Vice President in an interview with Radio Jambo on Wednesday morning said his team was yet to make official the direction it intends to take in the 2022 presidential race.
“It is not our first time to be doing these things…were are not dragging because we are being pushed to support Raila,” he said.
“There is nothing like being whipped to support Raila. From the two or three meetings, it is normal in a democracy for the President to speak with leaders,” Musyoka said.
He added that OKA was preparing and will give a lineup when the right time comes.
“When preparing a first 11 for a football match, you can’t speak of the lineup one year to the match.”
“Our hope is that we will reveal our lineup soon,” the former VP added.
He added that meetings with President Kenyatta have been largely about how to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic.
