A week after Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka announced move to support ODM leader Raila Odinga's presidential bid, with the Azimio allied political parties signing that alliance's coalition agreement at KICC on Saturday 12th March, divisions have rocked the team.
On Monday, Kalonzo caught the attention of Kenyans by stating that the political parties secretary generals who pended their signatures at KICC do not know what they really signed.
As reported by the Nation on Friday, Kitui Central Member of Parliament Makali Mulu, and who is a close ally of Kalonzo argued that the whole exercise was 'rushed,' stating that all parties in the alliance are keenly following on the technical committee that is still finalizing on the matter.
"The thing was rushed. Details of the agreement are still being finalized by the technical committee before depositing it with the Registrar of Political Parties. Every party is cautious because of the history of betrayal in this country," he said.
Kalonzo has been insisting on the alliance's name as Azimio-OKA, but Raila's team led by Governor Ndiritu Muriithi, Professor Makau Mutua and ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna have maintained that the name is Azimio La Umoja.
Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo confirmed about the coalition's name and stated that it has been settled as Azimio La Umoja, but revealed that the team was yet to agree on the slogan whether it will be changed from 'Inawezekana' to a different one.
