Revealed: Who Told Kalonzo to Drop Out of Senate Speaker Race to Avoid Humiliation

Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka.

There has been a continuing range of responses from Kenyans and politicians following Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s decision to drop out of the race to become the next speaker of the senate assembly.

However, the National Executive Council of Kalonzo Musyoka’s party Wiper,told him to drop his quest to avoid humiliation.

Furthermore, it was reported that the Wiper council met at the Wiper party headquarters and convinced their party leader to forego running for office in favour of focusing on expanding his brand.

The bulk of Azimio One Kenya MPs defecting to Kenya Kwanza has led to widespread concern among Wiper MPs that the coalition’s numerical advantage has been diminished.

Until that point, Kalonzo was one of fifteen people who had taken up nomination papers for Senate speaker.

According to all appearances, the Azimio principal was betting on Azimio numbers when he submitted his details for the job of speaker of the National Assembly.

A total of 46 senators voted, and Amason Kingi, a former governor of Kilifi, was elected speaker.

House Clerk Jeremiah Nyegenye reported that the 45-vote tally was more than sufficient to pass.

After an unsuccessful attempt to delay the election, Senators affiliated with Azimio staged a walkout after hearing the news of Musyoka’s resignation from the race from Nyegenye.

Musyoka, one of seven candidates certified to contest for the office, announced his withdrawal from the Speaker’s candidacy in a letter filed to Senate clerk Jeremiah Nyegenye.

Recently, Uhuru Kenyatta spoke to senators from the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance and urged them to vote for Kalonzo as the next Senate Assembly Speaker.
