All Seem Unflowery In The Raila-led Azimio After Latest Remarks by a Powerful Mt Kenya Governor

Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition Political Party is a jumbo outfit in Kenya ahead of the eagerly awaited August ninth general elections. This mega formation brings together twenty six political parties with Orange Democratic Movement Party leader Raila Amolo Odinga being its presidential candidate.

Among the key affiliate parties within Azimio are Party Of National Unity led by Agriculture CS Peter Munya and Devolution Empowerment Party under Meru governor Kiraitu Murungi.

In what has emerged as a fresh alcertation within Azimio outfit, Kiraitu Murungi has now vowed to campaign for UDA party Candidate in Tigania East Constituency in a bid to deny EALA MP Mpuru Aburi a chance of emerging victorious.

It should be remembered that Aburi is among the notable figures in Meru county who are aligned to Peter Munya,who is a fierce critic of the governor.

This latest move by Murungi is in retaliation to a recent move by Aburi to drum up support for Mwangaza Kawira,an independent candidate who is equally eyeing the Meru Gubernatorial seat at the expense of Kiraitu.

To further fuel the already escalating feud between him and Munya, Kiraitu has now boldy declared that each canditate to distinctively look for his or her own votes with the bottom line that, Raila is for them all

This latest move by Kiraitu is unhealthy move as it could end up beefing up the chances of their opponents, especially UDA to reap big by winning majority of elective seats in Meru county come August ninth.
