Saturday, November 19, 2022 –Nairobi Senator, Edwin Sifuna, has responded to Mt Kenya leaders in Jubilee Party who have threatened to leave Azimio La Umoja.
Sifuna, on Saturday November 19, stated that Jubilee Party overpromised Raila but terribly failed to deliver despite issuing tough conditions to Odinga.
“True! Baba got 490k more votes in Mt. Kenya than 2017. BUT the PROMISE was 40% or 2.4m votes from the mountain.
“Jubilee overpromised and underdelivered whilst also extracting serious concessions including a Mt Kenya running mate, Nairobi Governor and over 50% of Govt. Msitubebe,” he mentioned.
He was saying this in response to a section of Uhuru allies who worked with Raila Odinga in their Azimio la Umoja coalition in the last campaign and who now say he had outlived his usefulness in their region.
Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni in his statement, noted that Raila’s debt with Mt Kenya Region people was no more.
He added that time to move on with life after election was now and that Odinga and his friend Uhuru Kenyatta must accept that they were defeated.
On his part, former Nyeri MP, Ngunjiri Wambugu, noted that today they nolonger recognize Uhuru Kenyatta and that Rigathi Gachagua is their regional kingpin.
“DP Gachagua is our current leader in Mt Kenya. We can meet have tea and talk about issue affecting our country and he will listen and act. He is the leader holding the highest position in the country,” Wambugu argued.
This is happening even as President Uhuru Kenyatta continues with his peace mediation role in DRC Congo.
