Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has been asked to ensure that they get more appointments in the government in the event of any deal with the Jubilee administration.
Kitui Central MP Makali Mulu, who is also the secretary for devolution, planning, finance and Vision 2030 in the Wiper Party’s National Executive Council (NEC), made the call in Kitui Town.
“We agreed with our leader that even as he signs an agreement to work with President Uhuru Kenyatta, he should ensure that our party enjoys more privileges,” he said.
Mulu revealed that the negotiations held by the party’s governing board two days ago were aimed at laying strategies for Musyoka’s 2022 presidential race.
The MP, who is an economist, differed with his Makueni colleague, Daniel Maanzo, over the party’s position on Nasa.
“We have not withdrawn from Nasa. The opposition coalition remains intact. When the time comes and there is a need to, we will sit down and agree with the several parties in Nasa on the matter.”
He said that the reason political parties are formed is to vie and take over power. He was convinced that the time had come for the Wiper Party to do so.
The MP said that one of the key matters discussed during the party NCE held last Friday was on the route to winning the 2022 presidential election.
