Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has arrived at Nairobi’s Serena hotel for the Azimio presidential running mate interview.
Kalonzo will appear before a seven-member selection panel to answer as to why he should be considered for the running mate position.
The Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Alliance has fronted ODM Leader Raila Odinga as its presidential flagbearer in the August 9 polls.
In a turn of events, however, Kalonzo appears to have changed his mind last minute.
He had last week adamantly confirmed that he would not be attending the interviews, terming the process ‘demeaning to his stature.’
“I want to tell all Kenyans that I will not attend the said process. I find the entire thing demeaning to my person and will therefore distance myself from it,” he told The Standard on phone.
The former vice president expressed that the Azimio la Umoja brigade knew he was the most suitable to be Odinga’s running mate, but was involved in an unnecessarily circuitous process meant to achieve nothing much.
