Unease in Azimio as top supporter maintains Raila Tosha but makes unexpected move in Kiambu

With tomorrow the last day for campaigns as per the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission calendar, uncertainty is causing jitters in sections of the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance Coalition Party. This is after one of the biggest supporters of the political outfit from the Mount Kenya region maintained her unwavering support for Raila Odinga, but then at the same time, appeared to withdraw support for another important political player in the Raila Odinga camp.

Former Nairobi County Assembly member Karen Wanjiku who is now one of the most ardent Azimio supporters took to Twitter to reiterate her dislike for the United Democratic Alliance party, relishing at the prospect of their dwindling fortunes in Kiambu. However, in a move that clearly threw James Nyoro under the bus, Karen went ahead to effectively endorse William Kabogo who isn’t in Azimio. The county’s flag-bearer for the gubernatorial seat is the sitting governor James Nyoro who ascended to the office after the impeachment of Ferdinand Waititu. Karen’s tweet read,

Their own Mizani Polls firm is now stating that William Ruto’s UDA grouping be seriously struggling in Kiambu county. William Kabogo is making an evitable comeback with thee next Mt Kenya supremo being Martha Karua followed by yours truly from Tujibebe! #Inawezekana #VoteAzimio

The Tujibebe Wakenya Party leader had distanced himself from DP Ruto-led Kenya Kwanza coalition just two weeks ago.
Speaking during the Kiambu gubernatorial debate on Sunday, Kabogo said that he is a man standing on his own. He noted that he has not been in the coalition’s campaign trails of late.
“Things change, right now I am on my own and I am doing quite fine, “Kabogo said in the debate aired live on Citizen TV.
Additionally, Kabogo was asked whether some of his gubernatorial manifestos augur with those of a presidential candidate he is supporting.
“I do not have a manifesto of any presidential candidate as we speak, I will be dealing with my manifesto which is just to improve the lives of the people of Kiambu and make it easy to survive,” he said.
Kabogo, who disassociated himself with the William Ruto-led coalition had officially joined the Kenya Kwanza on March 14.
He joined the coalition alongside Kimani Wamatangi and Moses Kuria, who are also his opponents in the Kiambu gubernatorial race.
