Nairobi-based Kenya African National Union (KANU) politician Weston Wanjohi has explained why he thinks Jubilee party had technically ditched Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Alliance for the ruling Kenya Kwanza movement.
According to Wanjohi, Jubilee, which is led by former president Uhuru Kenyatta was only in the opposition coalition in line with the August 2022 pre-election pact, but the party's heart was in the government movement, because its members missed the recent Parliamentary Group Party meeting convened by Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), NARC-Kenya and Wiper Democratic Movement-Kenya bosses.

"Jubilee has technically joined Kenya Kwanza, but on paper they are still in Azimio. All Jubilee Mps skipped Azimio's PG today (Tuesday)," said Wanjohi on Tuesday night.
On Tuesday, Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Alliance held the PG meeting, where members from its constituent parties attended. The meeting was a yearly routine even where issues affecting the coalition, whether positively or negatively are addressed.
This comes after a scuffle ensued between Jubilee members and its counterparts from other Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya coalition parties over nominations to the East Africa Legislative Assembly (EALA). Jubilee contented the move by ODM and Wiper Democratic Movement-Kenya to exclude other parties during nominations. Jubilee accused ODM of conmanship and deceit for bagging all the available slots.
However, the opposition coalition leadership heard the cry of Jubilee and picked ex-Kieni Member of Parliament James Mathenge alias Kanini Kega to take part in elections for the positions. Kanini Kega finally made it to EALA, therefore, the disquiet due to mistrust and suspicion subsided.
