Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko is perfect for the Wiper Democratic Party, party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said.
Sonko has previously been courted by Kalonzo who has asked him to join the party and return home, in reference to his Kamba roots.
The Nairobi Senator is a member of the National Alliance TNA as well as the ruling Jubilee coalition.
Kalonzo says that in 2017 when the General Elections take place, Wiper will be the winning party.
" We are the winning party and we ask our brother Sonko to be a part of the winning team," he said during the opening of a new Wiper branch office in Nairobi.
Sonko has previously stated that he respects Wiper but is committed to TNA.
Kalonzo was also adamant that Wiper was in the CORD coalition to stay.
" Wiper is in CORD and we are all looking hard towards the 2017 elections and seeking a winning team," he added.
On whether Kalonzo would back either ODM leader Raila Odinga or FORD Kenya's Moses Wetangula to stand for the presidency, he was open to the idea as long as it was what was best for the coalition.
