Musyoka launched his presidential campaign at Uhuru Park in Nairobi on 14 October Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka meeting the British Foreign Secretary William Hague in London. Deputy President William Ruto and former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka have rules the air as Uhuru, Raila lead breakfast prayer meeting. This alleged meeting is detailed in Kalonzo's book, 'Against all odds', which “I clearly remember the night I felt betrayed by Uhuru and Ruto.
In Mr Ruto's recollection, however, the former Vice-President attempted to use The Hague cases, which President Kenyatta and Mr Ruto faced at the time, to rally them behind his presidential bid in on a Jubilee Alliance ticket.

Mr Musyoka's version of events is different. Mr Ruto said Mr Musyoka did not hide his game plan from them, adding that during their last meeting, he told them point blank to shelve their bid "because we would be in jail for 10 years".
Mr Ruto claimed that the position taken by the Nasa presidential running mate was the reason they fell out with him after "we realised that were dealing with an enemy," after he allegedly laid bare his ambitions to their face. In the biography written by former Nation journalist Caleb Atemi, Mr Musyoka recalls in cinematic detail the tension-gripped night meeting in his Karen home in which he claims the Jubilee duo pushed him out of their alliance.

He said there was no agreement of a Musyoka candidature between them, adding that the reason they kicked out the Wiper leader was because he told them "a very weird thing" during one of their meetings.
He told us, gentlemen, why can't you allow me to become the president. In any case you will be in jail for 10 years after which when you come back I will be through with being the president and then you can take over from there," said Mr Ruto.

The controversial issues of corrupt cartels financing elections also came up, with Mr Ruto challenging the opposition to come out clearly on why their campaigns are allegedly being funded by people with dirty hands and stop making false allegations against the government.
May be he should get an opportunity to explain himself," he said, adding: He is now a member of Nasa.
The Nasa team accused Jubilee of hypocrisy for claiming that Nasa was funded by corruption cartels while in actual fact, Mr Wanjigi funded the jubilee campaign in The Jubilee leadership is, however, reportedly at a loss owing to "conflicting signals" from Raila. Claims of a scheme to weaken the Opposition and talk of finding a political role for himself suggest he is not open to discussion of his retirement.
Quoting unnamed sources in CORDa reputable online newsletter this week reported that Raila had declined to meet the President for discussions that may lead to his retirement.
However, a senior aide to Raila that has spoken to The Standard On Saturday claims that there has been at least one face-to-face meeting. He said Jubilee want to engage Raila "as a statesman".

Any deal on non-Cabinet Government positions or Raila's retirement would not necessarily affect the balance of power between the Government and the Opposition in Parliament. A proposal to also have Raila do the same has since been rejected as unseemly.
Murkomen, who is eyeing the position of Government Chief Whip in Senate, however, rules out the possibility of Raila and Kalonzo themselves being absorbed into Government, as was the case in the last Parliament. He said they will "surprise many" by forming an all-inclusive Government, including appointing individuals from "rival camps".
And addressing staff of the former PM on Thursday, after taking over the offices previously occupied by Raila and his team, at BP Shell Building along Harambee Avenue, the Deputy President reiterated his earlier call to Raila "to identify and give us people to work with".
