Azimio Split Over House Teams Slots

The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition has caused some divisions. This is a result of the leadership position over who should fill its three Parliamentary slots.

Several political parties with differing positions make up the coalition. This includes the fact that the ODM, Narc and Wiper parties are the largest in the partnership.

The difference of opinion arose after coalition members allegedly expressed their viewpoint in letters to National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetang'ula.

Opiyo Wandayi, the leader of the minority group in parliament wrote the Speaker who serves as the PSC's chair as soon as the coalition's choices for the panel were known. The two are Patrick Makau from the Wiper party and Mishi Mboko from the ODM party.

But shortly after sending the letter, Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni sent the Speaker a second letter in which he named Sirisia MP John Waluke as Jubilee's candidate for the position. Only two members should be produced by the coalition.
