Fourth President Uhuru Kenyatta and Azimio leader Raila Odinga met on Saturday night in Mombasa where the two leaders discussed a number of issues, among them, Azimio Coalition politics and Mr. Kenyatta’s international assignments in Tigray and Eastern DRC.
Mr. Kenyatta was among the invited friends by the Odingas to celebrate Hon Raila’s 78th birthday.
A source who spoke to this publication on condition of anonymity discloses two leaders are worried about the direction Kenya is taking especially on the economy, and how the Kenya Kwanza administration is working hard to undo Mr. Kenyatta’s legacy, akin to what the 46th President of the USA Donald Trump tried to unsuccessfully do to President Obama, the 45th, after leaving Washington.
Speaking on Sunday outside Mombasa’s ACK Memorial Cathedral after attending a church service, Mr. Odinga told the press the Jubilee Party leader was firmly in Azimio and dismissed any power struggles in the coalition as had been previously reported in the media.
He also confirmed he was with Mr. Kenyatta on Saturday.
”There is no power struggle in Azimio. Everything is done as per plan. He is in Azimio to stay. I was with Uhuru yesterday and I talked to him this morning. Uhuru is a member and part and parcel of Azimio leadership,” Raila said.
