The war of words in Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition has escalated with key figures in the camp being blamed for the loss of its leader Raila Odinga
MPs accusing ex-President Uhuru Kenyatta, Suna East MP Junet Mohammed and others of letting Azimio down.
But Mr Odinga has defended the two, blaming IEBC and Supreme Court for bungling the elections and throwing out a petition challenging the same.
Embakasi East MP Babu Owino attributed Mr Odinga’s loss to failure by Mr Kenyatta, who is also the chairperson of Azimio, to rally his Mount Kenya region behind the ODM boss
His Rarieda counterpart Otiende Amolo now claims a series of blunders by dishonest individuals around the ODM leader led to his defeat in last month’s polls.
Mr Boniface Mwangi, who was a member of Mr Odinga’s running mate Martha Karua’s campaign secretariat, has come out to claim that the Azimio team failed due to the involvement of Mr Kenyatta which made it hard to shed the ‘projects’ tag.
Kanu Secretary General Nick Salat said there were too many centres of power.
The secretariat ignored feedback on how to make the campaign resonate with Kenyans, including withdrawing old men and people facing criminal charges from our rallies, getting more youthful voices on the campaign stage
Kagendo – As they blame each other, let them know this. Ruto was irresistible and his team concentrated on selling his ideas. On the other hand, Raila’s team became resident haters and professional insult hosts who peddled obvious lies and to a large extent pushed away possible voters whenever they spoke. Whether they deny it or not, some Azimio leaders did more harm than good through the insults, shaming and lies they peddled. In short, Azimio drowned itself in a hatred pit sorrounded by pride, and the blame game they are struggling with now will not help in any way! Sasa anzeni matusi yenye yalifanya mshindwe!
Robert Muiga – Raila made mistakes in his campaigns. He said that mitumba would be banned as they belong to the dead. He also said that Kenya is a secular state which was misinterpreted
Joshua – Losing Mudavadi and Wetangula was a disaster to Raila. Azimio running mate and Chairman did not deliver their backyard including their own polling stations
Gladys- Blame game is going to take us nowhere. Wait till life becomes unbearably expensive….all of us will suffer
