Former President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to resign from his Azimio Chairperson position to concentrate on his work as the East African Community and Great Lakes Region peace facilitator.
The Azimio Council, the Opposition Coalition’s highest decision-making organ will convene to ratify Mr. Kenyatta’s exit, a revelation made by former Jubilee vice chairperson David Murathe.
”We will be having a meeting very soon where he will formally resign as the chairman of the Azimio council.”
”Obviously, you cannot have two drivers steering a bus. This vehicle called Azimio now has one driver and that driver is Jakom,” Murathe said, adding that the move will create space for Raila Odinga as the overall Azimio leader.
”He is now above local politics. Going forward, everything is Jakom and the Azimio system. The council will sit and make a decision about who takes up the position but the overall leader of Azimio is now Jakom and there is no ambiguity about it,” Murathe added.
