Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has rubbished reports that he will take oath as deputy people's president on February 28th.
Speaking on Tuesday in Machakos, Musyoka termed the claims as propaganda from the Jubilee side, noting that his swearing in date will be announced later.
"I could have not taken the oath on the day Raila took the oath. We had a strategy for him to start and for me to be sworn-in later."
He added: "We are conducting a serious audit on what is happening in the country and are consulting with Nasa. We are focusing on the fight for freedom."
The National Super Alliance (Nasa) principal further maintained that the coalition is intact and he has no plans of leaving.
"You forget I stood with Raila in 2013 and 2017... if you want me to support him in years to come, I will be there."
"We are serious leaders and we mean well for Kenya. I have never been a coward and I will never be one," he said.
On February 6th, Kalonzo reiterated his commitment to taking oath, although he pointed out that the coalition needed to first address some issues.
"How I wish I were able to do it right now. Taking oath is not an issue. We are not cowards. There is no hindrance. We have to put our house in order."
Speaking to KTN, Wiper Party Deputy leader Farah Maalim ruled out possibilities of Kalonzo Musyoka taking oath as deputy people's president. He also hinted that the coalition was headed for a split following the swearing in of Raila Odinga on January 30th.
“I don’t see Nasa surviving beyond that swearing-in. I also see Mudavadi, Kalonzo and Wetang’ula coming together and reaching out to Mt Kenya region. Politics has just started,” Maalim said.
He added:“I don’t see Kalonzo being sworn in... It is a pity... I would have loved if he (Kalonzo) had taken a firm position from the word go and said, 'sorry I am a lawyer I don’t want to do this'."
Kalonzo, alongside co-principals Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang'ula skipped the swearing of Odinga two weeks ago. The three claimed that police placed them under house arrest.
