Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka was among the IEBC list of presidential aspirants of the coming August elections, despite Raila Odinga being the official NASA bearer.
In a final list released by the IEBC, Kalonzo’s name conspicuously appears ahead of Raila Odinga who will fly the Opposition’s flag.

While addressing journalists on Thursday, May 18, Omar who is also the Senator for Mombasa said Kalonzo being in the list was simply a case of a “list passed by events”.
“We first submitted Kalonzo as the Wiper flagbearer, but on the basis of the coalition government (NASA) he will be Raila Odinga’s running mate.” Omar said.
