Still Loyal To Azimio Coalition, Kenyatta Says As He Resurfaces

 

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta has maintained that he is still behind the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya bandwagon even as he takes a backseat on active politics in the country.

The Former Head of State who is deemed to have stakes in the Mt.Kenya region politics said he is loyal to the Raila Odinga-led coalition.

 “When they ask me I tell them I belong to the Azimio Coalition, that’s where I am, I am not a deceitful person,” he said.

Kenyatta expressed that despite the ongoing blame game waged on the former government by the Kenya Kwanza Alliance regime on their administration misses, he will not be cowed.

“We have been threatened and told this and that. When they fail to do something, they blame me. Even if a wife refuses to get pregnant they will blame it on us. But we are used to it,” the Ex-President said.

He stressed the need for unity in the country calling upon Kenyans not to be divided on social status. The Former Head of State insisted that negative politics would stifle the growth of the country.

“We must make sure that our country is safe, children have gone to school and there is peace. Let’s not be greedy leaders. Let us not engage ourselves in the negative politics,” Kenyatta said.

Kenyatta on Sunday was hosted by Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka in Mwingi, Kitui County, for a church fundraiser.

The two leaders arrived in one helicopter where they were warmly by the locals.

The former head of state has kept a low profile since he finished his term and handed over power in September 2022.

Machakos Governor Wavinya Ndeti, Former Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya,  Senators Godfrey Osotsi and  Enock Wambua are among other leaders in attendance. 

The Former President has kept a low profile, the last he was seen in public forums was in July.

 The former Head of State drove himself to the Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka Centre in Karen where he joined other Azimio leaders in the interdenominational prayer service

The prayer service by the opposition doubled up as a mass to mourn supporters who lost their lives in the antigovernmental protests.
