Former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar has launched an attack on Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka over claims of betrayal in the contest for county’s top job.
Few days after tendering his resignation as Wiper secretary general, Omar now says Wiper Party’s leadership is “weak and fluid”.
Omar questioned his former boss’s stand on Mombasa gubernatorial race.
“You don’t know whether Kalonzo is supporting Joho or me. When he (Kalonzo) speaks from the airport, he is taken to the bedroom by people who oppose us (Joho). How foolish does he think we are?” he posed.
A frustrated Omar revealed that he was not going to support the opposition in the October presidential poll.
The Star quoted him; “Right now he is hanging on the ballot. I am not a fool…I know which party I need to join. How smart does he think he is?”
He reiterated that it is unlikely that he would play any part in NASA’s October 17 presidential tackle against the ruling Jubilee.
Omar stated that he had learned a lot in trying “too much to impress ethnic chiefs.”
“I won’t be there to be duped twice. I am not a fool and I know the party you need to join. One that can give you chances.”
ODM’s Hassan Joho defeated Omar to retain the top county job in the August elections. Omar has petitioned the re-election of Joho through a race that former Nyali MP Hezron Awiti and Jubilee’s Suleiman Shahbal participated too unsuccessfully.
