Raila Odinga and his Azimio team has continued to receive blow after blow following their recent calls for mass action if president William Ruto will not bring down the cost of living in 14 days. This is after some Azimio affiliated parties distanced themselves from the demonstrations, saying that they will not help Kenya.
A section of grassroot leaders drawn from Makueni county have come out to disassociate themselves from the recent ongoing political activities in the country.
While addressing a press conference, the leaders said that they are tired of holding demonstrations after every five years adding that time has come for them to chat a fresh political path.
"We cannot be part of those demonstrations again. They have been of no help to us. We want to declare that Ukambani recognizes the presidency of William Ruto and we are going to support him," noted one of the leaders.
The leaders further accused Raila of misusing the Wiper party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, to settle his own political scores. They stated that it is the high time that Kalonzo and other Wiper party leaders smell the coffee and move on.
"The song has been the same since 2013. We have been expecting to have Kalonzo on the ballot but he has been changing his mind the last minute. Raila Odinga has been preying on him to advance his political career," stated another leader.
"We know that Raila is planning to vie again in 2027. Ruto stands a better chance to defeat him and this time round we will support him. We don't want to be involved with these other political shenanigans. We are tired. It is also time that Kalonzo and our Wiper leaders smell the coffee and make appropriate decisions," added the leaders.
