ODM leader Raila Odinga denies President Ruto in a heated Azimio La Umoja meeting

In a dramatic turn of events, the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party leader, Hon Raila Odinga, faced a barrage of questions from coalition principals during a heated meeting at the SKM Center in Karen. The coalition members expressed their frustration and confusion over recent political developments involving President William Ruto.

The Standard Digital reports that the opposition chief was questioned about the lack of communication within the coalition regarding President Ruto’s and the Kenya Kwanza camp’s apparent support for Raila’s bid for the African Union Commission (AUc). The coalition principals felt blindsided and demanded an explanation for being kept in the dark.

Raila Odinga firmly denied any claims of endorsement from President Ruto, stating that there had been no formal communication or agreement between them. He emphasized the importance of unity and transparency within the coalition and assured the members that all decisions would be made collectively.

The meeting comes on the heels of recent reports suggesting that President Ruto had a meeting with Raila Odinga and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, which sparked rumors of a political alliance. However, Raila has retracted any statements about such a meeting, causing further speculation about the true nature of their relationship¹²³.

This development has sent shockwaves through the political landscape, with many questioning the stability and future of the Azimio coalition. As the situation unfolds, all eyes are on the opposition leader to see how he navigates these turbulent waters.
