Miguna mocks looming fallout in Azimio as Jubilee threatens to quit

In his reaction to the latest wrangles, Miguna said that the coalition could be the first political party to fall, coming barely four months after the general election.

“Azimio has made history as the political party that died faster than a housefly,” Miguna said through a post in his official account.

He asked Kenyans to learn from the Azimio turmoil and to avoid coalitions being created for trickery.

“Form ideologically grounded political parties with genuine platforms and agendas for national good. Avoid phantoms created for chicanery.”

This comes a day after the Jubilee Party of former President Uhuru Kenyatta threatened to quit the Azimio coalition following a disagreement with the ODM of Mr. Raila Odinga on names proposed to be nominated to the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).

Through a statement, the Jubilee Party said that three slots to be filed to PSC by the Azimio were to be shared with the three big parties in the coalition, which are to ODM, Jubilee, and Wiper Democratic Movement of former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka.

In the names presented by Azimio and approved by the Parliament, ODM had two members, including Likoni MP Mishi Mboko and Okong’o Omogeni and Wiper Patrick Makau.

Jubilee Nominated MP Sabina Chege said during the address that they were saddened by the situation, which she said was against the agreement signed during the formation of the coalition.

“We, the leadership of the Jubilee Party across the political divide are saddened by this show of impunity and urge the Speakers of both Houses to suspend the approval of the nominees to PSC until the matter has been resolved by the minority coalition,” Ms. Chege said.
