Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka now says he is ready to support President Kenyatta if he decides to extend his tenure for another term.
Speaking during a meeting of Kamba leaders in Machakos County, Musyoka says plans are underway to amend the Constitution to remove the presidential term limit.
Musyoka explains that there is a general consensus among opposition parties to unite with President Kenyatta to oversee a review of the Constitution to expand the executive.
“I foresee a situation where Wiper Democratic Movement will go into coalition with Jubilee, ODM, ANC, Ford Kenya and form one indivisible political juggernaut ambaye itaproduce the next Prime Minister under a new Constitution," says Musyoka.
He says the current Constitution is bad for the country since it's skewed to winner-takes-it-all.
“But now we have found a solution and the solution is our preparedness to amend our Constitution and to make this country once and for all an all-inclusive State,” he says.
Musyoka has also declared that he's ready to back President Uhuru for a third term when the law is changed to remove the presidential term limit.
“Tuungane, with other communities, tumsaidie ndugu Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta. Kama atasema after the new Constitution tumeiunda na mimi nataka kuendelea mbele ntamwambia nitakusupport (Let’s come together with other communities and help our brother Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta. If he says after the new Constitution that he wants to proceed I will support him).”
Speaking at the same function, former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama notes: “We pray to God that his power is revealed, Kalonzo ascends to power with the others when we review the Constitution so that we create a Kenya where freedom is not for one person but for everyone.”
