Major Twist as Raila Says Uhuru is Going Nowhere Dismissing Claim that Uhuru Will Resign from Azimio

The plan to have former President Uhuru Kenyatta leave Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition has taken a new twist. This is after the Azimio boss Raila Odinga maintained that Uhuru is in the coalition party to stay.

The opposition leader also termed as propaganda the allegations that there was a power struggle in Azimio La Umoja One Kenya which could lead to its collapse. Odinga further stated that the constituent parties will be repositioned so that Azimio could win the next election. Raila also disclosed that he had met Uhuru.

"There is no power struggle in Azimio. Everything is done as per plan. He (Uhuru) is in Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition to stay. I was with Uhuru yesterday and I talked to him this morning. Uhuru is a member and part and parcel of Azimio leadership," Raila said.

The ODM leader was speaking to journalists on Sunday outside ACK Memorial Cathedral in Mombasa. Raila said that Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya coalition leadership agreed to strengthen the coalition and support the constituent parties.

But it emerges that Raila Odinga's statement seems to contradict earlier reports attributed to Jubilee leadership. A section of Jubilee leaders had claimed that Uhuru was stepping down from his role as chairman of Azimio Council. They claimed that Uhuru was supposed to step-down so that he could focus on peace building initiatives in Africa. However it seems Uhuru might remain the chairman of Azimio Council.
