Unrest has been seen in Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance coalition today after a section of legislators from the Jubilee party have threatened exit the Raila-led team after realizing they have been locked out of Parliamentary Service Commission.
Speaking today, the lawmakers have said that their fellow brothers in the coalition have short-changed them in three positions that were supposed to be shared amongst ODM, Wiper and Jubilee.
Despite this agreement, Azimio leaders presented and Parliament approved – the names of Likoni MP Mishi Mboko (ODM), Patrick Makau (Wiper), and Okong’o Omogeni (ODM).
And now, Jubilee lawmakers led by nominated member of parliament and former Murang'a women representative Sabina Chege now requests Speakers of both National and Senate Houses to suspend the approval of the list of nominees until minority coalition settles the dispute.
“We, the leadership of the Jubilee Party across the political divide are saddened by this show of impunity and urge the Speakers of both Houses to suspend the approval of the nominees to PSC until the matter has been resolved by the minority coalition,” Ms Chege said.
