Kalonzo's team makes drastic change on Raila swearing-in

Kalonzo is not yet in the country.

Mr Maalim, who recently petitioned the re-election of National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale for the Garissa Township parliamentary seat, distanced himself from the plans to have his party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, take an oath of Deputy President alongside ODM’s Raila Odinga on December 12 as earlier announced by the former Premier.

“As someone with a legal background I will like to uphold the law. I have not been part of any process that is arranging for the swearing in of Raila Odinga,” Mr Maalim told NTV’s AM Live show on Monday morning, but failed to disclose if that was the position of the Mr Kalonzo’s Wiper Party.

He added: “I will hesitate endorsing any 'swearing in' because that is a recipe for chaos.”

The new development comes hours after the arrest of NASA’s key strategist Dr David Ndii who was last week tasked with streamlining operations of the People’s Assembly, which was understood to be working on Raila swearing.

Last week, Wiper Party made huge changes to its leadership after the exit of key figures to the Uhuru Kenyatta led Jubilee party, eyeing for cabinet appointments.

The party appointed former Nominated Senator Judith Sijeny as the party’s Secretary General, months after former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar left the party.

Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana, in addition was appointed Wiper’s national chairman, after former Kitui Senator David Musila, ditched Wiper for Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party. Mr Musila ditched the party, just like Omar, citing poor leadership at the party.
