Kalonzo arrived shortly after the 9 am time flanked by his aides.

Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has arrived at the Serena Hotel, in Nairobi, for Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance presidential running mate interview.

Kalonzo arrived shortly after the 9 am time flanked by his aides.

The wiper boss will now face the panel of eminent persons and argue his case on his suitability for the running mate role.

Earlier, the SKM Command centre had announced that Kalonzo will attend the interview.

"His Excellency Hon. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka SC, hereby states that he has decided to honour the invitation to attend the interviews for the Azimio One Kenya running mate position that will be conducted by the panel of eminent persons chaired by Hon Noah Wekesa on the o9th of May 2022 at 9 am," the statement by SKM command centre stated.

The latest development is a departure from Kalonzo's hardline stance in the last week where he has been insisting that he won't attend the interview.

Kalonzo and his allies insisted the interview is not for them.

Wiper leaders said Kalonzo has been a vice president and a presidential running mate two times and hence is more qualified.

The Wiper boss had suggested a meeting between ODM leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta to solve the stalemate.

Raila is in the horns of a dilemma in picking his running mate with the IEBC requiring him to submit the name by May 16.
