Kalonzo explains why Martha Karua skipped the Azimio Coalition Summit meeting chaired by Raila Odinga.

Narck Kenya party leader Martha Karua on Tuesday, March 5 missed the Azimio la Umoja Summit meeting chaired by Raila Odinga.

Addressing the media after the meeting, Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka revealed that Karua traveled to Dar es Salaam on Monday and she sent her apologies.

“Our sister honorable Martha Karua travelled to Dar es Salaam last night she would otherwise been here. We have her apology,” said Kalonzo.

The Summit is the top decision-making organ in the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition.

In a statement after the meeting, the coalition said the meeting was to take a bird’s eye view of the nation with regard to the high cost of living, inclusivity in appointments to public service, taxation, and the general health of the economy.

The meeting also deliberated on the status and progress of the NADCO report and the progress and status of Odinga’s bid for the chairmanship of the African Union Commission.

“We also remain opposed, deeply, to the idea of subjecting farm produce to taxation. It is our position that forcing farmers to part with Ksh5 for every Sh100 they make from their farm produce is unreasonable and cruel. We encourage our farmers to resist this tax,” Azimio stated.

The Raila Odinga-led coalition also urged President William Ruto to rein in National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetang’ula, Senate Speaker Amason Kingi, and a section on Executive members over plans to undermine the NADCO report.

Azimio claimed that the leaders have demonstrated an intention to derail the NADCO report.

“Those leaders have clearly demonstrated a determination to delay, derail or even kill the NADCO report, which is a negotiated document that pulled the country out of hostilities to the peace that obtains today. 

Nobody should take the present situation as a given or for granted,” Azimio stated.
