Uhuru’s Jubilee Threatens To Quit Azimio, Accuses ODM of Conmanship

by Mustafa Juma

Jubilee party has threatened to exit the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition.

Jubilee Party Members of Parliament have said they will walk out of the political formation if one of their own will not be allowed to sit in the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).

They are now demanding one of the three positions set aside for the minority in the commission.

This is after Senate minority whip Fatuma Dullo’s name was removed from the list and replaced by Nyamira Senator Okongo Omugeni.

Dullo was Wednesday kicked out of the nominees to the PSC by the minority in the Senate.

The decision was endorsed by the Senate, with some members accusing her of being gullible and nominating herself to the commission without the knowledge of the leadership.

Conmanship

Laikipia North MP Sarah Korere who was flanked by 10 other Jubilee MPs on Thursday said most of their members were disgruntled by how they have been treated in the coalition, even during the formation of committees in parliament.

Korere noted that Jubilee was not coerced to join ODM in Azimio and should their mebers be mistreated in the coalition, they will leave willingly.

This, she said, is because they have experienced firsthand the conmanship, politics of deceit, and political banditry by their brothers in Azimio.

Parliamentary group meeting

Eldas MP Adan Keynan said they will be holding a parliamentary group meeting to chart a way forward.

He asked the Azimio leadership to fast track the issue, call for a meeting and allow Jubilee to nominate a candidate to the PSC.

The Azimio coalition has struggled to fill the few positions available to them with Jubilee first proposing Sirisa MP John Waluke to the commission.

However, his name was removed from the final list presented to parliament.
