The Orange Democratic Movement- ODM has distanced itself with Wiper Democratic Party leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka that there is secret pact between the two parties.
According to ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna, Kalonzo is a two face character who is always whining while seeking to reap where he did not sow.
“We know that Kalonzo tried to push Raila to commit to support him in 2022 as part of the NASA pact and as a party, we flatly rejected that demand,” said Sifuna.
Kalonzo claimed that ODM frustrated NASA and that is the reason he is seeking a coalition agreement with Jubilee.
Sifuna said ODM single-handedly financed the NASA Secretariat, including paying staff salaries because Wiper and all the other NASA parties refused to submit the 10,000 shillings monthly payment of their elected leaders to finance the Secretariat.
“It is quite dishonest for Kalonzo to claim that he is seeking a coalition agreement with Jubilee because of ODM betrayal. The fact is, Kalonzo is feeling threatened by Governors Charity Ngilu, Prof Kivutha Kibwana and Dr. Alfred Mutua and by joining jubilee, Kalonzo is seeking protection from the three Governors,” said Mr. Sifuna.
The ODM Secretary General termed Kalonzo as a dishonest leader.
“As a party, we challenge Kalonzo to man up, stop whining and be able to stand up for something for once.ODM and its leader Raila Odinga owe Kalonzo nothing. As a party, we have moved on and we are not planning our politics around Kalonzo,” he said.
