Former Muranga It appears that Governor Mwang wa Iria has rejected Raila Odinga's Azimio la Umoja coalition movement as a viable political option.
Wa Iria, who had defected to join the Azimio la Umoja camp in July 2022, spoke out against the move on Wednesday, claiming that he has never been a part of Azimio and that the move is false. The former county chairman claimed that he had always been affiliated with the Usawa Kwa Wote Party and that he had never been a member of Raila's Azimio alliance.
Mwangi stated, while lashing out at Nyeri County Governor Mutahi Kahiga, that he is in full support of President William Ruto and that those who think that he is in Azimio are in for a rude awakening. Mwangi was speaking in the context of attacking Nyeri County Governor Mutahi Kahiga.
"Mtu mwingine atasema mimi ni wa Azimio, mimi sikua wa Azimio, nilikua wa Usawa Kwa Wote...
In his statement, he said, "Ruto is my buddy, and I will support his government while he is in office."

I consider Ruto a friend, and I intend to lend my support to the administration he leads while he is in office. Mwangi Wa Iria, Former Murar Governor tv47ke 04.01.2023"
"Governor Kahiga has been criticizing me, but I want to remind him that he is a product of poor luck. He has had a lot of misfortune in his life." He was elected to office the first time as a result of a misfortune, and the second time, he was elected as a result of good fortune. He has been speaking negatively about me, and I want to tell him to shut up by saying, "ataona kivumbi kutoka kwangu," Mwangi added.
This comes as a result of the fact that the DP Rigathi Gachagua advised Governor Kahiga not to engage in verbal conflict with Mwangi Wa Iria, stating that Wa Iria was still recuperating from the defeat that they experienced in Azimio.
This occurred when Kahiga chastised Mwangi Wa Iria for making a promise to challenge DP Gachagua for the position of kingpin of the Mt. Kenya area. Mwangi has stated that he will compete with Gachagua for the position of kingpin of the region.
Ignore these Azimio men because they are a mess, so let's not bother with them. They are still living in denial, which is why he is threatening to challenge me; let us concentrate on the tasks that Kenyans have assigned to us, said Gachagua in Nyeri. "Let us focus on the works that have been given to us by Kenyans."
During a news conference held on Tuesday, July 19, 2022, Wa Iria revealed his intention to work together with Raila Odinga, who is running for president of Azimio.
