Wamalwa said the two have decided to team up the way President Mwai Kibaki his brother, Wamalwa Kijana, did in the 2002 General Election. “We have said we will walk together with Uhuru. We aim to do the same thing Wamalwa (Kijana) and Kibaki did,” Wamalwa said during a thanks giving prayer service for Dagoretti MP Beth Mugo, who had undergone cancer treatment in the US.
Among those who attended the function include Uhuru, former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta and MPs Martha Karua, Elizabeth Ongoro, Millie Odhiambo, Elias Mbau, Margaret Wanjiru, Rachael Shebesh, Ferdinand Waititu and Lewis Nguyai and businesswoman Mary Wambui among others.
He said he has faith the next president will be elected without bloodshed, adding this was the reason why the G7 Alliance had come together to choose one of them to run for the presidency.
“We will negotiate but without fear,” Wamalwa said, adding the team know who it will choose. Uhuru said leaders have a duty to unite Kenyans and not divide them.
“The most important thing is not just getting leadership but what the leader can do for Kenyans,” Uhuru said. Uhuru also called on the losers in the General Election to accept the outcome of the poll or go to court if not satisfied.
“In 2002, I competed with President Kibaki and I acknowledged defeat. The final verdict is with the people,” the DPM said.
Mugo urged Kenyans to support the Cabinet decision preferring an electronic registration of voters.
“This way no vote will be stolen and on name will be illegally added to the voter register,” Mugo said.
“With manual registration of voters, even dead people will be added to the voter register,” Mugo said.
