Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana has spoken out following Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s move to join the Azimio la Umoja movement.
Governor Kibwana, who accused the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principal of indecisiveness, told him not to issue demands while joining the coalition.
Speaking during a campaign tour in the region on Friday, Kibwana said his partnership with fellow Ukambani governors; Charity Ngilu (Kitui) and Alfred Mutua (Machakos), had seen them establish themselves in Azimio and that they were already contributing immensely to the coalition’s inroads into the region.
According to the Makueni County boss, Kalonzo has joined the Raila Odinga-led team late and hence should not put too much hope into top positions therein.
“Sisi hatuna shida Wiper ikija katika Azimio…Lakini wakija wajue wamekuja wakiwa wamechelewa na wakae katika zile viti zenye watu wamechelewa hukaa,” said Kibwana.
“Lakini kuja kusema kwamba ati sasa wanataka viti za mbele, tumefanya kazi, tunaendelea na kazi, hatutaki confusion.”
This comes after OKA, in a joint statement read by Kalonzo on Friday, resolved to join the Azimio la Umoja coalition ahead of the August General Elections.
The OKA principals said they had settled on a decision to join ODM and Jubilee parties in forging a grand coalition dubbed Azimio – One Kenya Alliance.
“The One Kenya Alliance wishes to inform Kenyans that it has officially initiated open and structured dialogue with like-minded political formations, namely the Jubilee Coalition and the ODM Party,” Kalonzo said.
“We are open to the formation of a Grand Coalition to be known as the Azimio – One Kenya Alliance that shall be anchored on three equal pillars.”
