"Niko Tayari Kutoka Azimio" Big Blow To Odinga-led Azimio As One of Its Top Gun Hints Joining KKA

Since the year 1963 when Kenya got her independence, several general elections had been conducted with only five presidents in history.

Mzee Jomo Kenyatta became the first president followed by Daniel Moi, Mwai Kibaki, Uhuru Kenyatta and the current president William Samoei Ruto.

After the declaration of Ruto as the President-elect by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, some of the independently elected leaders and some Azimio affiliated leaders were reported to have joined his Kenya Kwanza Alliance.

Some Azimio affiliated leaders like the Kandara Constituency politician honorable were also reported to have joined Kenya Kwanza Alliance camp after the Ruto's swearing in.

In what is seen as another blow to Odinga-led Azimio, another prominent leader honorable Alinur Mohammed who vied for Kamukunji Parliamentarian seat on the Azimio ticket in the just concluded last general elections have hinted joining Ruto's camp.

According to his official Twitter Handle, Alinur Mohammed said that he met President Ruto before and realized that he is a good leader.
