Things Falling Apart as Mega Split Reportedly Looms In Azimio La Umoja Coalition

After failing to clinch power in the August ninth general elections, Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition party is a house full of controversies and miseries. The outfit led by ODM party leader Raila Amolo Odinga and former President, Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta is walking a tight rope as far as its future is concerned.

In the recent past, there have been witnessed series of defections to the Kenya Kwanza side with Raila's staunch allies showing him their backs. These woes are seemingly not ending any sooner.

In yet another looming crisis for the Raila-led outfit, Taifa Leo Newspaper on Monday reported a looming divorce as Jubilee Party led by Uhuru Kenyatta is reportedly planning to exit the Azimio formation.

Latest indications from key Mount Kenya leaders have conspicuosly revealed that it is not if but when they will finally walk out of the Azimio camp.

Key leaders from Mount Kenya region like Kanini Kega, Jeremiah Kioni and Ngunjiri Wambugu, have all embraced Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua as their new Kingpin and are in a push to broker a political truce with him in the name of Mount Kenya unity.

To add more insults to injury, Uhuru himself has gone mum and is only concentrating on his international assignments which he was given by President William Samoei Ruto.

Being a key pillar in Azimio, should Jubilee Party withdraw, then it could mark the begining of the crumbling of this one time formidable political formation.
