Azimio Governor Warns Raila, Alleges What Ruto is Secretly Doing Ahead of 2027 Polls

Azimio la Umoja one Kenya Coalition's leader Raila Odinga on Friday made a bold decision which is purported to keep off president William Ruto from inverting his camp in search of followers.

Afraid that head of state President William Ruto was eating into his support base, Odinga rallied governors who are allied to Azimio la Umoja to exercise their oversight role to Kenya Kwanza's government.

According to one Azimio governor who did not want to be mentioned, Odinga and his fellow Azimio leaders were concerned by Ruto's secret moves which were purported to lure those who didn't back him in the August presidential election in an attempt to weaken the opposition.

The unnamed governor as well cited that Ruto is preparing his way ahead of 2027 , something which worried Odinga and his entourage who instead demanded an immediate leave for IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati and two others.

" There is more general feeling that Ruto is consolidating more powers and seems to be preparing his troops for the general election", said governor.

" He is reaching out to people who did not support him and trying to eat into Raila Odinga's political bases", he added.

The veteran opposition leader as well vowed to continue with his quest of electoral reforms citing that election rigging won't happen again normally. 

Meanwhile, they all agreed to form a caucus with their deputies in order to fend off President Ruto's ' undemocratic' plans.
