Uhuru reveals his stance on Azimio

The most blatant indication that former president Uhuru Kenyatta is still a member of the Azimio coalition came on Saturday.

In order to reaffirm his status within Azimio, the former president referred to Raila Odinga as his party’s leader.

“My brother, my friend, my party leader Raila Odinga fellow mourners, we are here to join you today to celebrate the life of a great son,” Uhuru said in his introductory remarks.

While Uhuru serves as the organization’s chairman, Raila is the leader of the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya party.

The action would surprise some Jubilee politicians who have stated they want the party to leave Azimio.

Despite the elected MPs’ proposal to have the retired president’s Jubilee party leave the Azimio coalition, the retired president’s comments indicated that the party is still a part of the partnership.

A group of Jubilee MPs met on Friday in Naivasha to discuss the party’s plans to withdraw from Azimio.

A special national delegates convention to ratify a cooperation agreement with president William Ruto’s administration was also announced.

Jeremiah Kioni, the secretary general of Jubilee, was also expelled by the MPs, and Kanini Kega took his place in an acting capacity.

Additionally, vice-chairman David Murathe was suspended, and Eldas MP Adan Keynan took his position.

It was considered that Uhuru’s future in Azimio was dubious in light of the events.
