Wiper: Letter on Kalonzo’s ‘exit’ from Nasa is Jubilee’s handiwork

The Wiper Democratic Party has rubbished a letter circulating on social media with claims that party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has quit the National Super Alliance (Nasa).

The opposition party’s secretary general Hassan Omar on Saturday termed the contents of the letter question as “stupidity” channeled by Jubilee Party’s spin doctors.

The letter, which is purported to have been authored by Mr Musyoka, cites “major frustrations, underhand dealings, non-commitment and absolute dishonesty from previous partners” as the reasons for the Wiper party leader’s decision to “quit” the opposition outfit.


“I hereby wish to withdraw from NASA (a process which my legal team has began) and offer my candidacy for the Office of the President of the Republic of Kenya, under a Wiper Democratic Movement ticket”, the letter dated May 05, 2017 and “signed” by Musyoka reads in part.

The letter, which is in Nairobi’s News possession, claims Musyoka is ditching the opposition coalition exactly a week after he publicly agreed to become Raila Odinga’s running mate.

However, the Wiper party has responded by blaming the Jubilee Party for the authorship and circulation of the fake letter.

“How does one in his right sense believe in such nonsense?” Omar posed in his brief response posted on his official Facebook page.
