No Rest for Raila As More Legislators From Azimio Call Him Out for Doing the Following

ODM leader Raila Odinga is at war with his allies in the Western Kenya region just days after quarrels with the Mt Kenyan leader from Jubilee party.

On Tuesday, the leaders held a press conference where they expressed their dismay at Raila's Azimio because of the lack of attention given to the issue of power sharing.

Interestingly, among them is ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna, who doubles as a Nairobi senator courtesy of the Orange Party.

Politicians accused Raila of political disloyalty and finally announced their desire to work with others in the opposition Kenyan Kwanza side.

"People's elected leaders will speak with one voice from today, regardless of party membership," Saboti MP Caleb Amisi said in a statement.

They expressed concern over ODM's decision to withdraw Jubilee's PSC nomination, saying it took Syrian MP John Waluke's seat on the commission.

They said this, apart from the decision not to give Luhya any position in EALA, made them reconsider their position in Azimio.

"We know that (Walukhe) has received a letter from the Jubilee Party offering him a letter," the leader said.

The statement was read to the press in Parliament.
