The move by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party to get two slots in the powerful Parliamentary Service Commission and one slot by the Wiper party leaving no space for the Jubilee party has opened a new tussle in the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance camp.
This forced a section of the Jubilee MPs threaten to ditch the Alliance, saying that there were being treated outside the coalition’s agreement, remarks that came before the Jubilee SG Jeremiah Kioni said that Wiper and Jubilee were treating them as outsiders.
Speaking with KTN News on Tuesday morning, Kisumu politician and Seme MP James Nyikal argued that any person or leader elected under the Azimio camp ought to remain in the coalition and pursue the necessary means to solve on emerging disputes.
According to Nyikal, those who have ditched the alliance to President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza Alliance, as well as the Jubilee leaders threatening to leave Azimio are unpatriotic, as they ought to unite under Azimio as the opposition to offer oversight to Ruto’s government.
“People in opposition and seek to join the government coalition are unpatriotic, this is because the opposition is a very important element in democracy, moving to the other side is creating dictatorship as you will be joining the side as an underdog. As Azimio, we should remain united and oversight to the KKA side,” said Nyikal.
