Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said that he does not understand the agreement they signed at KICC to join Azimio.

The former Deputy president said that the agreement signed on March 12 in Nairobi during the coronation of Raila Odinga was not smoothly done.

“If I asked all those party secretary-generals present SGs what they affixed their signatures to, nobody knows,” Kalonzo said on Monday. He was speaking to KTN News at his Tseikuru home, Kitui County.

Kalonzo raised doubts on the transparency of the process, stating that most of the parties are not aware of what they signed. 

“Parties present at KICC were presented with two documents to sign, which they did hurriedly,” he said.

According to Kalonzo, the ODM Director of Elections Junet Muhammed introduced a second document that proposed parties to endorse ODM leader Raila Odinga as the presidential candidate of Azimio la Umoja.

“We declined to sign that part of the agreement as the earlier agreement stated that the coalition would be named Azimio One Kenya Alliance,” he said.

“I still want to have a meeting with my fellow principals and our lawyers, including myself to reflect on that technicality,” he said.

Wiper and the other 26 parties on Saturday signed the coalition agreement to work together in Azimio la Umoja at KICC.

The secretaries of the various parties also signed a commitment document to support Raila Odinga’s candidature
