- The Wiper leader also claimed that Kenya Kwanza is aggressively hijacking Jubilee party as part of its scheme to obliterate the opposition
- He said President Ruto's administration is determined to kill multiparty democracy by enticing opposition MPs to join Kenya Kwanza.
Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has lauded his party MPs for turning down political overtures and standing firm in the opposition.
Speaking during a Wiper party thanksgiving service at his expansive Yatta home, Kalonzo said the ruling Kenya Kwanza government is committed to rendering the opposition dysfunctional.
The former vice President warned President William Ruto's administration against luring opposition MPs to consolidate power akin to the de facto one-party rule of the Nyayo era.
''I commend our Wiper members, who despite intimidation and open bribery stood and continue to stand firm and tall,'' he said during the event.
''None of them was able to get hoodwinked, if any of them will dare after today, you would have lost the 2027 elections.''
The Wiper boss said President Ruto's administration is determined to kill multiparty democracy by enticing opposition MPs to join Kenya Kwanza.
Kalonzo said the Azimio coalition won majority of parliamentary seats across the country but were denied the privileges after Kenya Kwanza staged a coup in Parliament.
''Azimio won the majority but victory was stolen in broad daylight, that is why we continue to fight for democracy,'' he said.
The Wiper leader also claimed that Kenya Kwanza is aggressively hijacking Jubilee party as part of its scheme to obliterate the opposition.
''This blatant attempt to take over Jubilee party by hypocrites, let them loudly hear our emphatic no that you will not take over Jubilee, not now or ever,' he said.
Kalonzo's remarks come at a time when retired President Uhuru Kenyatta has come out to forcefully stamp his authority as the Jubilee party leader despite internal factional wars.
He also claimed that the arrest and planned arraignment of former Laikipia senatorial candidate Maina Njenga is a political scheme to silence critics in Mt Kenya.
''Our sisters and brothers from the mountain are clearly stating that enough is enough,'' he said
