Wiper party leader takes action after Raila threatened that ODM may go it alone in 2022

Wiper Party responds after Raila threatened to go it alone in 2022

Wiper Party Secretary General Peter Mathuki has challenged Raila Odinga’s ODM to publicly declare if they will honor a pre-election pact signed by National Super Alliance (NASA) principals.

Speaking on Saturday, Mathuki warned that the party still has other options on the table and is not desperate.

“They’re saying they’ll go it alone if they are pushed. But who is pushing them?” Mathuki wondered.

He also questioned the timing of the statement made by Raila Odinga during ODM’s National Governing Council (NGC) on Friday.

“Why is it that they are being pushed when time comes for them to support the other principals?

What we are seeing is that they’ve taken our 10 years of supporting them for granted. They need to come out clear, and then we will know who is honest, and who is not” said Mathuki.

In 2017, ODM entered into a pre-election pact with Wiper Party, Ford Kenya and Amani National Congress to form the opposition coalition National Super Alliance (NASA).

According to the pact, the party leaders agreed to support Raila Odinga in the 2017 presidential election on the understanding that a different principal would be fronted for the 2022 elections.
