Wiper Party Leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka has returned to the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition.

Kalonzo who recently announced his bid for the presidency in the August, 9 general polls but later his decision was overturned by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) says he never left Azimio but he just took a short break.

Kalonzo left Azimio after Presidential candidate Raila Odinga picked NARC Kenya Leader Martha Karua as his running mate.

He was received back in Azimio Coalition in a rally conducted at Nairobi’s Mukuru Kwa Njenga slum on Thursday.

The Wiper Party leader revealed that he has been consulting with his party and over 300 religious leaders that he paraded during the rally.

Musyoka also said he dropped his presidential bid and accepted the Chief Cabinet Secretary role and a Cabinet Secretary in Raila’s government.

Kalonzo says he will fully back Raila Odinga in his bid to clinch the presidency come August, 9 general election.
