Kalonzo reveals what Uhuru Kenyatta told him over Azimio’s future amid reports that he’s set to resign.
Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has denied reports that Uhuru Kenyatta intended to leave the Azimio la Umoja coalition party.
In a media interview on January 5, Kalonzo stated that he had spoken with Uhuru about the matter and reaffirmed that the former head of state was a stern coalition member.
He added that the top leadership of Azimio had not been informed of the impending resignation.
“We as Azimio’s top leadership have not been briefed that Uhuru is relinquishing his position as the chair of the council.
“I have directly asked him that question and he asked me to ignore such reports,” Kalonzo said.
The Wiper leader further stated that the former president was to join them in future meetings to help them strategize on their next move maintaining that the coalition puts up a united front.
Kalonzo stated that the meeting would give a clear direction to their members on their planned demonstrations.
“Azimio is intact. People say that there is trouble in the coalition. There is no problem. When we will sit with Raila, Uhuru, Martha Karua, and Gideon Moi, we shall give them a direction and they will follow suit.
“We are together. There are no differences among us. We cannot also refuse to let them air their differences,” he stated.
Reports emerged that Uhuru intended to resign o focus on his role as a peace envoy.
There were also reports that he would resign amid a threat from a section of Kenya Kwanza leaders who promised to ensure that he misses out on his retirement benefits.
