Kalonzo: I am best Opposition's flag-bearer in August elections
By Joackim Bwana | February 14th 2017
Wiper Democratic Movement party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said he is the most qualified candidate to run as the Opposition's flag-bearer in the August 8 General Election.
Kalonzo said he had the capacity and ability to lead the country and correct all the mistakes of the Jubilee government, which he described as the worst nightmare to ever happen to Kenyans.
Kalonzo said President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto had plunged the country into massive debt.
"I am the best suited candidate to lead the country and clean up the mess that Uhuru and Ruto have put the country in," said Kalonzo in Mombasa on Sunday.
He said if elected president, he would revise the contracts that Jubilee had signed with foreign countries and reduce taxes levied on Kenyans.
"The worst mistake you can make is to fail to register as a voter because that means you want Jubilee to remain in government," said Kalonzo.
The Wiper leader was addressing Mombasa residents at Kadongo grounds where he received Ali Mbogo, who defected from ODM to Wiper.
Kalonzo urged Coast residents to register as voters in large numbers so as to send Jubilee government home in the elections.
He said his party would deploy more than 20 youths to each polling station to ensure that there was no rigging by Jubilee.
