Raila convenes crisis meeting to mitigate Azimio cracks.
Azimio la Umoja leader, Raila convenes crisis meeting that will help manage the crackdowns in the Azimio la Umoja coalition.
Hon. Raila is expected to meet up with the Orange democratic movement elected and nominated members of the National Assembly and the Senate on Monday, September 26, 2022.
Among the issues is Hon. Raila Odinga’s choice of the National Assembly Majority leader.
The seat was being eyed by Nominated member of parliament, John Mbadi but instead, Azimio la Umoja handpicked Ugunja member of parliament, Opiyo Wandayi.
Mbadi said,”We have made sacrifices before. We will still make sacrifices, if that has to be the price for our unity!”
He added,”My NOMINATION to the NA must not be misconstrued.
My supporters in Homa Bay have never recovered from emotional damages they sustained when I was asked (and I complied) to shelve my gubernatorial bid.
PROPER organization is key!”
Other Azimio allies who expressed their grievances are Babu Owino, Embakasi East member of parliament and Ledama ole kina, Narok County senator.
They stated that regardless of their sacrifices in Azimio la Umoja, they continue to be sidelined and betrated by the coalition.
Ledama said,”We want to see the party reward the youth, and loyalty. Otherwise, from today some of us will start being disloyal. If we will not be rewarded as the youth in ODM, then we will reward ourselves.”
Babu Owino compared the seats distribution in Azimio la Umoja to that of Kenya kwanza. He stated that Kenya kwanza is more strategised in their distribution.
Babu said,”When you look at our opponents, look at how they have rewarded the youth. Mheshimiwa Osoro has been given the whip in the NA, and Ndindi Nyoro is either going to be a cabinet secretary or the chairman of the budget committee.”
