Azimio Uncertainty addressed by Raila

Raila Odinga, the head of Azimio La Umoja, made an effort to calm concerns about the party’s possible mass defection on Friday, January 6.

In response to media rumors that important players, including former president Uhuru Kenyatta, were attempting to leave, Raila spoke out.

Raila said that Azimio was duly created and that former President Uhuru Kenyatta continued to be the council’s legitimate chairman.

Additionally, he made it clear that governors were required by law to collaborate closely with President William Ruto.

However, he cautioned the head of state from misinterpreting the kind gesture made by his coalition and urged governors to carry out their duties in the counties and Azimio efficiently.

He maintained that the legislation adequately guaranteed money distributions to county governments and that no governor should beg the president for friendship.

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta was going to step down as the head of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance, according to a statement made by Jubilee party vice chair David Murathe on December 11, 2022.

Murathe informed the media that Uhuru’s departure will free him up to concentrate on the East African peace initiative.
