I'm not joining Jubilee, Kalonzo says

Nairobi - I'm not joining the Jubilee Coalition, CORD Co Principal Kalonzo Musyoka has said.
There have been rumours in recent weeks linking the Wiper Party leader to the Jubilee Coalition ahead of the 2017 polls but the former Vice President says that they are a case of wishful thinking.
He insists that there is no way he will leave the CORD Coalition prior to the 2017 polls.
" I am happy here and talk of me leaving is fantasy talk as well as wishful thinking," he told News24.
" Those stories are meant to create rifts within the Coalition but will fall on deaf ears. There is something strong we are building here at CORD and I am very happy to be a part of it," he added.
Kalonzo was Friday nominated as the Wiper 2017 poll flag bearer, a duty he says he will carry with his heart.

" This is a great honour and I will do my very best to deliver the Presidency to this party," he added.
Kalonzo will compete with ODM leader Raila Odinga as well as FORD Kenya boss Moses Wetangula for the topmost ticket to represent the party in 2017.
He welcomed the competition, saying that it boded well for the Coalition.
" The competition is good and healthy. I endorse it fully," he added.
Whoever wins the CORD ticket will compete with President Uhuru Kenyatta who will be the Jubilee Party flag bearer.
