Former President Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee party has announced plans to leave the Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya coalition party, with a 14-day deadline to do so.
The party's Nairobi delegates disclosed today that they have collected signatures and have asked the top party leadership to start the withdrawal process.
The delegates claimed that they were unaware of the deal inked when they joined the alliance, and that it has remained a secret since the coalition that supported Raila in the August elections was created.
They also accused the Orange Democratic Movement party of insulting the Jubilee party leadership and lawmakers, and said that they could no longer be in the same coalition with them, led by their newly endorsed Nairobi chairman Mark Ndung'u.
They also claimed that Raila's party shortchanged the former ruling party in numerous coalition leadership positions, citing the Nairobi County Assembly speakership and the Public Service Commission membership, both of which Sirisia constituency member of Parliament John Waluke was denied.
Finally, they demanded that the Azimio Leaders explain where the money meant for agents went, claiming that agents have yet to be paid and that the money may have been squandered.
