KANU & Jubilee withdraw from Azimio’s protests in public.

The Azimio la Umoja coalition’s Jubilee and KANU parties have disassociated themselves from Raila Odinga’s planned statewide public demonstrations.

At the same time, Odinga promises to “bring down President Ruto’s system” in the nationwide protests that will begin on December 7 at the Kamukunji Grounds in Nairobi.

After meeting with Azimio leaders from Nairobi County on Friday, Odinga declared, “We will commence public consultations with the people of Kenya on the 7th of December at the historic Kamukunji grounds here in Nairobi to discuss on the direction the country is headed.

The demonstrations are a result of the current investigation by Parliament of four commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

The demonstrations are a result of the current investigation by Parliament of four commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

The four, Juliana Cherera, Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi, and Justus Nyang’aya, are being interrogated as a result of petitions filed questioning their eligibility to hold office as a result of their disavowing of the presidential election results of August 9.

On December 12, Odinga remarked, “We will return to the Kamukunji grounds to continue these conversations on the state of the Kenyan nation and to also have a prayer for democracy in our country, which is currently being threatened by this regime.

He charges President Ruto with rigging the elections in 2027 after the suspension of the four and what he considers “skewed public appointments.”

Jubilee and KANU are not participating in the rallies, according to sources close to the two parties.

Without going into greater explanation, they stated that although remaining members of the Azimio coalition, they would not be taking part in the protests.

Their choice only serves to confirm rumors of internal strife inside the Odinga-led group.

After Fatuma Dullo’s name was removed from the list of individuals permitted to sit on the Parliamentary Service Commission at the beginning of this month, some Jubilee Party MPs threatened to abandon the coalition (PSC).

Later, coalition-supporting senators held a news conference to deny reports that the alliance had broken apart and to reaffirm its continued strength.
