With humility, I accept Raila’s Chief minister offer

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has accepted the Cabinet Secretary position he was offered by ODM party leader Raila Odinga.

“With humility, I hereby accept the nomination for the position of the chief minister when Azimio forms government. I would wish to congratulate Karua on her nomination as Azimio DP nominee,” he said.

Speaking when he addressed the media at his command centre, Kalonzo said he will also back Azimio la Umoja’s presidential candidate for the presidency.

“We have an opportunity to choose a united and prosperous Kenya. The alternative is unthinkable and unimaginable,” Kalonzo said.

 “I have deferred my dreams to run in the August elections and I will support the Raila-Karua ticket.

Kalonzo at the same time shared a message of gratitude to a section of Kenyans who stood with him when he declared his bid for the presidency.

“I stand here as a proud Kenyan. I acknowledge the goodwill I have received from those Kenyans who appended their signatures to allow me to run for the presidency,” he said.

Kalonzo had last month announced his exit from the Azimio fold and declared he will be gunning for the presidency.

This was after Raila picked Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua as his running mate ahead of the wiper boss.
