Few days after the declaration of William Ruto as the president elect, several members of Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party and those who vied as independent candidates have joined Kenya Kwanza. This includes those who were elected in UDM party ticket.
For that reason, the Azimio team is not a happy lot. Raila Odinga campaign secretariat spokesperson Makau Mutua has this afternoon given a statement regarding the same. He has accused Ruto of bribing the team to join his camp.
That this was a method used by KANU party to defeat the independence of the judiciary and retard the growth of multiparty democracy. That his attempt to empty Azimio will not succeed. That the agreement to join Azimio for parties was very clear.
He also added that any party that is in Azimio know the rules and conditions for exit. Those who signed the document are in Azimio fully. He asked those elected in Azimio and as independent to stand firm and fight for democracy.
