Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has disclosed the possibibility of a merger between Jubilee, ODM, ANC and Ford Kenya and stated that he is ready to support President Uhuru Kenyatta for a third term in office.

Kalonzo made the remarks while addressing a meeting of Kamba leaders in Machakos convened to quell tension and a massive walkout in his Wiper party.

"Let’s come together with other communities and help our brother Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta. If he says after the new Constitution that he wants to proceed I will support him," Kalonzo stated.

The Wiper party boss hinted at a mega coalition bringing on board all major parties in Kenya and forming an all-inclusive government.

“I foresee a situation where Wiper Democratic Movement will go into coalition with Jubilee, ODM, ANC, Ford Kenya and form one indivisible political juggernaut that will produce the next Prime Minister under a new Constitution,” he said.

He maintained that the move to amend the constitution was unstoppable and urged leaders from other communities to support the initiative championed by NASA.

He also tore into the winner-takes-it-all approach that has seen highly charged and hotly contested elections that is often accompanied by chaos and violence, opining that there was need to expand the executive to accommodate all.

DP Ruto calls for drastic changes in government during his London speech

Kalonzo appeared to be reading from the same script with DP William Ruto who proposed drastic government changes as he appeared to throw his weight behind the campaign to have a referendum to change certain sections of the existing constitution.

While making a public lecture at Chatham House, Ruto proposed a parliamentary system of government that would have an executive President, a prime minister, and an official leader of opposition.

He proposed that the President should be elected directly by voters while the Prime Minister position would be given to the person with majority in Parliament.
