President William Ruto has recently been on an onslaught over Azimio in a move seen by political pundits as a bid to weaken the opposition.
His latest storming of the preceding ruling party, Jubilee, has now left the once powerful faction a shell of its former self with wrangles within the party rendering it almost non-existent.
On Sunday, Nominated MP Sabina Chege, EALA legislator Kanini Kega, and other Jubilee lawmakers were welcomed to the government by Ruto, who stated that they returned ‘home’.
Moreover, the Head of State has raided his main nemesis Raila Odinga’s own party, ODM, after a contingent of ODM leaders met Ruto at State House last week. The former Premier termed them traitors and asked them to quit the party.
However, Ruto’s camp has come out to defend him stating that the recent move by a section of Azimio leaders to support the Kenya Kwanza government had not been influenced by the President.
According to Leader of the Majority in the National Assembly Kimani Ichung’wah, the leaders had made their own decisions as he argued that Ruto had no motive of forcing anyone to work with him and that anyone was free to leave without coercion.
Do you think it is right for the opposition leaders to break ranks with Azimio to work with the government despite Raila insisting Ruto’s administration is illegitimate?
