Wiper Party reignites Azimio La Umoja dispute on coalition deal

Mr Kalonzo Musyoka’s Wiper party has filed a protest against the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition party agreement, alleging that it was changed without the assent of all parties on three matters, including the choice of a running partner.

The latest disagreement stems from a recent arrangement reached by Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga to satisfy rebellious leaders of tiny parties, who threatened to join Deputy President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza Alliance if they continued to be treated as second-class citizens in the coalition.

Wiper Party was among the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) parties that expressed opposition to the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition political party’s registration and subsequent coalition agreement, citing three controversial topics.

The OKA argues the agreement submitted on April 1 “was withdrawn and certain terms revised or altered without the permission of all the parties and signatories,” according to a letter that will allegedly be filed with the Registrar of Political Parties.
However, only Secretaries-General Bernard Wafukho (United Democratic Party) and Shakila Abdalla signed a copy of the letter dated April 11. (Wiper). Mr. Nick Salat (Kanu) and Mr. Linus Opiyo (MDG) are the only ones who haven’t signed it. The coalition political party agreement should not be registered, according to the organization, because three items “have not been agreed upon.”
