Friday, January 21, 2022 – In a clear show of desperation, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has begged aspirants allied to Azimio la Umoja movement not to ditch his party ahead of the August polls.

Speaking while joining forces with Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yattani’s Upya Party on Wednesday, Raila noted that he had hatched a plan to expand the movement to accommodate everybody and as such, they should not join his enemy, especially Deputy President William Ruto, if they lose in the nominations.

He urged the politicians, most of whom are affiliated to the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) and Jubilee Parties to remain united in Azimio.

He further noted that he was banking on the Political Parties Bill, which is currently in the Senate, to allow Azimio to admit both political parties as well as individuals to run on its ticket, according to the gaming and policital information platform, citing the source.

“Now we want to work together and agree that Upya will come. We have ODM and Jubilee but we are now bringing other parties.”

“Once the Bill goes through Parliament and is registered, we will be able to bring parties and even individuals can come and run directly as Azimio. You can come as Upya Azimio, ODM Azimio and Jubilee Azimio. I have been telling people, ‘let us bring and unite our people,'” he explained.

Speaking at the event, Yattani expressed his interest to join the Azimio la Umoja movement noting that his party was ready to partner with the ODM leader in whichever formation he deems fit.

“We wish to join with whatever political formation you come up with and we want to clearly state that this is where we have a stake and a space on the high table,” he assured.

This comes after ODM and Jubilee Party recorded notable exits from the two parties with the most affected being Jubilee, headed by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
