President William Ruto’s allies now claim that the tycoons who wanted Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga in State House are once again at it.
Raila was sarrounded by a group of tycoons in the run up to last year’s elections, resulting in meetings at the Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi.
Allies of Ruto now claim that the same people could be using Raila to weaken the government after failing to install him as President.
They claim that they even held a meeting in Mombasa recently, which is where it was agreed that Raila plans and holds anti-Ruto demonstrations.
Embu governor Cecily Mbarire claims that the said tycoons are bankrolling the said demonstrations and are also allegedly planning protests.
Her Tharaka Nithi Counterpart Muthomi Njuki claims that the individuals are in charge of the ongoing happenings in Azimio, hence the coalition’s activeness even with the former Prime Minister out of the country.
“We don’t understand why when the opposition leader is outside the country there some people talking here how to sponsor protests,” he said.
The leader was among the Mt Kenya politicians who accompanied Ruto, who attended an interdenominational prayer service in Kerugoya on Sunday.
The leaders suspected that former President Uhuru Kenyatta might be among the said tycoons, hence the sudden activeness of his Jubilee Party, a member of Azimio, that has been very vocal against Ruto lately.
Njuki urged Ruto to stop focusing on Raila and look beyond him, alleging that some people from the Mt Kenya region are silently working against him.
“It is not possible that Azimio was made up of only one faction of the opposition, there is also another camp that is within us and we are not looking, we need to start looking at them,” he said.
