The Executive Director of the Azimio Secretariat Raphael Tuju has trivialised the current exodus of politicians from the Azimio-One Kenya coalition.

According to him, there are six different political events requesting to be a part of the coalition however he didn’t point out them.

“I am not worried about the exodus. Let us wait and see what will happen in the next week. Already six other parties want to join Azimio-One Kenya but we cannot enter an MoU with them,” Tuju stated.

In an unique interview on KTN News, Tuju alleged that some politicians had made unrealistic calls for to the social gathering management and opted to go away once they had been advised off.

“There are some governors with graft cases in court who wanted their ongoing cases ‘sorted’. That cannot happen. If you have any cases face them on your own. If that is what you want, then we don’t want your support,” he posed.

The Odinga-Uhuru led coalition boss weighed in on the exit of Machakos and Kilifi Governors.

According to Tuju, the Maendeleo Chap Chap social gathering chief Alfred Mutua shifted allegiance for lack of funding.

“I sympathise with him (Governor Alfred Mutua). I pity his situation. He came to see me sometime back. His demands could not be met,” the previous journalist defined.

While saying his exit, Mutua had stated that the coalition had been mistreating small and upcoming events and had by no means acquired any funding as he opposed the hidden particulars of the settlement they signed.

Additionally, the Azimio boss stated that Amason Kingi left Azimio as a result of he didn’t need another social gathering to subject a candidate in Kilifi aside from PAA.

Kingi had attributed his exit to opaqueness, secrecy and lack of involvement within the coalition’s actions.

“Some of these politicians were expecting too much from Raila Odinga. You cannot constitutionally implement zoning. Every person is entitled to field a candidate,” Tuju remarked.
