After Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina publicly reprimanded East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) elected legislator Kanini Kega, tensions within the Azimio alliance further deepened.
The outspoken senator warned the former Kieni parliamentarian that he should not be the one to bring up the subject of betrayal by the Azimio alliance.
The newly elected EALA representative had sworn allegiance to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, referring to him as the most senior politician from the Mount Kenya region with the biggest electoral support.
“Rigathi, the sole senior leader we have in Mount Kenya, did a good job of bringing us together. He needs our support as a region, “Gachagua received Kega’s support as the next Mt. Kenya leader.
Despite his best efforts in the run-up to the elections, Kega felt he had been ignored by his fellow Azimios.
“When the voting was over, I expected my Azimio colleagues to back me, but I was surprised.”
“Some of them cast their votes for individuals I didn’t even recognize,” Kega expressed regret in a radio appearance with Inooro FM.
Kega’s words came after Gachagua said he had convinced Mt. Kenya UDA legislators to support him.
