The Political Defining Weekend
26th February wasn’t a weekend like any other, the Saturday’s morning approaching with a tension in the minds of both the voters and leaders to be about the 2022 elections race.
A day that saw the rebranding of the Jubilee party as they made a move to ouster the deputy president William Samoei Ruto from the Jubilee Party since he leads the famous United Democratic Alliance.
At Kasarani, the ODM delegates in turn were ready to push for their move into Azimio La Umoja Movement, overlooking the impending opinion of Jimi Wanjigi to run for the party’s presidency representation in the 2022 elections.
H.E Uhuru Kenyatta the president welcomed, the Azimio La Umoja patron Hon. Rail Amolo Odinga to join his party’s rebranding where H.E Uhuru got reinstated as the party boss for the next five years.
As the head of Jubilee party H.E Uhuru led his members of parliament, governors, senators and delegates in supporting the move to Azimio La Umoja as one people.
The engagements saw a shift in the political terrain with KANU chairman Gideon Moi, Wiper leader former vice president Stephen Kalonzo, Cyrus Jirongo (UDP) and Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua opting to join Azimio La Umoja as OKA (One Kenya Alliance).
Other parties that signed an agreement include PNU, UPA, UPIA and KUP, PAA (Pamoja African Alliance) led by Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi signed a pact agreement to Jubilee party.
The ODM delegates took this chance offering the mantle to Hon Raila Amollo, the president Uhuru yet to head for retirement endorsed the long-known Opposition leader as the most eligible candidate for presidency.
Urging the attending leaders as well as citizens to evaluate previous occurrences in an attempt to considering who is best fit to lead the country, between UDA aspirant the Deputy President William Samoei Ruto and retired prime minister.
The merging of parties in to coalitions has turned out the best option for political parties in the previous past months with (UDA) United Democratic Alliance joining hands with (ANC) Amani National Congress led by Musalia Mudavadi, FORD-K led by Moses Wetangula forming the Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
The Azimio La Umoja, yet to discuss and agree on a way forward on who will be flagbearer in the coming elections will soon offer the deliberated agreements to the citizens.
However, the task seeming difficult as the Wiper leader opted during the Jubilee rebranding that the president should be in charge of the pact talks and agreement to evade previous debacles faced in his treads in the political arena.
