The Wiper Democratic Movement party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) has pledged to rally behind its leader Kalonzo Musyoka as the 2027 presidential candidate.

Led by the party’s Secretary General Shakila Abdala and Matungulu MP Stephen Mule, the faction expressed confidence that Musyoka’s fellow Azimio la Umoja One Kenya co-principals will back his candidature.

“Msimamo wetu uko na Azimio na Kenya yote…most importantly is that Kenyans have endorsed Dr Kalonzo Musyoka. Watch this space…100% of hustlers are speaking to Kalonzo Musyoka,” Mule said.

Citing the risen cost of living, the party also threatened to go to the streets or push to lawfully impeach the current regime should the National Dialogue Committee (NADCO) co-chaired by Musyoka fail to factor in how the high cost of living will be tackled.

The MPs, who addressed the press after the party's NEC meeting on Tuesday, vowed to put the Kenya Kwanza administration on its toes to heed the plea of Kenyans.

“If the cost of living for Kenyans will not go down, then the bipartisan talks will not go anywhere. There are other issues but our priority is the cost of living. Kenyans are hurting…prices have risen…and we can’t afford to suffer for the next three years,” Abdalla said.

“Ata kama ni kwa streets ama impeachment, we will go. We have a Constitution which is very clear and gives the mwananchi the powers to do whatever they can to ensure their lives are in control. For one year we have had enough and we cannot continue that way for the next four years.”

This comes as Treasury Cabinet Secretary Prof. Njuguna Ndung’u is on Wedbnesday set to appear before the dialogue committee to help them unlock the cost of living impasse.
