Blame game in Azimio over Raila loss.
A blame game in Azimio has been witnessed with Allies pointing finger to each other on who and who made Raila floor in presidential elections 2022.
Embakasi east member of parliament, Babu Owino pointed fingers at Uhuru Kenyatta for betraying them. This is after President Ruto visited Uhuru before the Inauguration.
After the meeting , all news headlines reported that Uhuru finally congratulates Ruto
Babu Owino said,”Thank you Uhuru Kenyatta for keeping your word to Ruto. Your body language tells it all. It was a long con. We will reach where we are going. If we could not hunt with a dog, we will use a cat.”
Otiende Omolo also stated that there are moles within the Azimio la Umoja coalition. He stated that the moles kept a clean front but were actually backbiting them.
Hon. Otiende went ahead to say that the Azimio la Umoja coalition must do a review on where they started to go wrong.
He said,”We as the Orange party must go back and ask ourselves where the rain started beating us. There are people who cheated Mr Odinga till the last minute, we know them and we shall ask them hard questions.”
Sharing the same sentiments was Boniface Mwangi who stated that Azimio la Umoja failed because of Uhuru Kenyatta’s involvement in the campaigns.
Mwangi said,”Because of Uhuru’s incessant and ill-advised utterances, Raila and Martha struggled to shake off the ‘projects’ tag. Far from being ‘state projects’, Raila and Martha’s reformist credentials needed no emphasis. Unfortunately, Uhuru was the chairman of Azimio, a position that I stated publicly that he should resign from.”
Mwangi also stated that Key individuals in the coalition were reluctant to take campaign advice.
Mwangi added,”The secretariat ignored feedback on how to make the campaign resonate with Kenyans, including withdrawing old men and people facing criminal charges from our rallies, getting more youthful voices on the campaign stage, and having local leadership at the centre stage instead of having one man run the show at all rallies. Politics is local.”
