Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said his party candidate for the Msambweni by-elections will emerge victorious despite the Rala vs Ruto framing.

According to Kalonzo, Raila and DP William Ruto will be in dismay when the Wiper candidate is declared the winner in the by-elections.

"We will defeat both of them. I can tell you they are in for a rude shock. This is a grassroots run," stated Kalonzo.

Kalonzo dismissed the perception that the mini poll was a battleground for the Deputy President and ODM leader Raila Odinga saying Wiper had a much stronger candidate.

He was speaking during the unveiling the party’s candidate, Sheikh Mohamud, at the party headquarters on Tuesday.

The Wiper boss took issue with selective application of the public gatherings saying all political outfits deserve fair treatment by the police.

“If the advisory is selective then it’s illegal because citizens must be served equally by our state agencies but again as leaders we must alert police in good time,” held Kalonzo.

Last weekend, police officers barricaded the road leading to a venue where a candidate associated with the Deputy President was holding their meeting.

Former Senators Hassan Omar (Mombasa), Boni Khalwale (Kakamega) and Johnstone Muthama ( Machakos) are the DP Ruto's lead campaigners in the by-election.
