Split in Azimio as Kalonzo Disagrees With Karua

Discomfort has rocked the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance coalition after key figures differed on which direction the ongoing bipartisan talks will take as far as the cost of living is concerned.

According to the latest report, the Martha Karua-led Kamwene group which consists of leaders majorly from the Mt Kénya region raised concerns to Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga and his counterpart Kalonzo Musyoka on the rising cost of fuel in the country.

The Narc Kénya party leader together with Jubilee party Secretary General Hon Jeremiah Kioni wants the ongoing bipartisan talks halted to fight the rising cost of living but the Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka on the other hand have vowed to proceed with the talks.

While addressing the press conference, Jeremiah Kioni on Tuesday said that if he was the Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga, the ongoing bipartisan talks would not proceed because of the rising cost of living. He stated that as the opposition, there is no need for the two groups to sit down and talk while Kenyans are suffering.

This comes after the Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga gave the Kenya Kwanza administration a 30 percent mark, the equivalent of a D- during their first year in government.
