In a statement, the party said the main theme of the meeting would be the 2022 State House race and having Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka as the opposition coalition flag bearer.

It also said it would discuss the move by Musyoka to miss last week’s oath taking with NASA leader Raila Odinga, but not as the main agenda of the meeting.

The Wiper Party meeting comes amidst speculation that the no-show by Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi of Amani National Congress, and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula was a sign of a definite shift away from Odinga ahead of 2022.
