Wiper Party aspirants have asked their leader Kalonzo Musyoka to exhaust all dialogue mechanisms before exiting the Azimio la Umoja Coalition for his presidential candidacy.

Speaking on Monday, Wiper’s Organizing Secretary Robert Mbui stated that the Ukambani people's will is to be included in the next government after the August 9 elections.

This follows a resolution by Wiper Party officials and several other candidates who held a meeting in Machakos County.

“We are calling on our candidate Kalonzo Musyoka, Azimio coalition and Raila Odinga to engage in dialogue. Let them engage in discussion at the top and come before us with news saying there have reached an agreement,” Mbui stated.

Mbui however said should the dialogue fail, they are willing to back Kalonzo's presidential bid.

He insisted that having talks with Ruto's Kenya Kwanza Alliance is not an option on the table.

This push, according to Mbui, has been occasioned by numerous calls by the Ukambani people to increase their chances to form the next government.

“There is a dispute resolution mechanism under that alliance, so we are asking our party leader that we do consider the possibility of having further discussions on this coalition arrangement,” he added.
