The Azimio La Umoja presidential flag bearer, Right Honourable Raila Odinga could be at the verge of losing votes from the coastal region following the recent citations by a section of President Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee party allies.
Speaking during a women strategizing meeting in Mombasa county today, the leaders have accused Raila Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) camp for sidelining them in the national campaigns. They have argued that the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance has reached an extent where a monopoly has been created at the top of the camp's political bar leaving them without a say.
They have now called upon the Jubilee party leader His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene and have their place recognized. They have also claimed that Azimio has been holding campaigns right in Mombasa bedrooms without their consent and that's a great issue that need to be addressed as soon as possible.
Perhaps, it's probable that a major storm may hit the ODM boss's candidature in the upcoming general elections if the grassroot leaders are not effectively catered for.
