OPIYO WANDAYI reveals the relationship between RAILA and UHURU after alleged fallout over NADCO report – You won’t believe this

Friday January 5, 2024
 - Azimio Leader Raila Odinga and former President Uhuru Kenyatta are still bosom friends despite their different stance on the dialogue report.

This was revealed by National Assembly Leader of Minority, Opiyo Wandayi, who allayed fears of a fallout between Raila and Uhuru over the bipartisan report.

The Ugunja lawmaker maintained that the two Azimio principals are still united despite reports of a fallout over the National Dialogue Committee alias the bipartisan report.

He revealed that Uhuru had yet to reject the report despite his key allies, led by Jubilee Party Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni, opposing the report partially adopted by Raila. 

Further, Wandayi noted that the varying opinions among their members were typical, akin to what is observed within families. 

"I cannot speak on behalf of Uhuru, but there is nowhere where I have heard him say that he opposes the NADCO report. If there is any, then you should tell me. So, people should stop forcing differences where there are not.”

"We are united under Raila, but that does not mean that we will not have divergent views on it," Wandayi stated. 

On allegations that Azimio failed to meet its target during the dialogue, Wandayi insisted that the exercise was successful, insisting that only one of the demands was not met.

He stated that the Raila-led coalition attempted to have the Kenya Kwanza regime bring down the cost of living but to no avail.

Differences among Azimio leaders emerged after the NADCO report was released in November 2023.

While the report was largely adopted by ODM and the Wiper Party of Kalonzo Musyoka, other allies such as Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua and Jubilee Party opposed the report.

According to the report's opponents, Kenya Kwanza hoodwinked Azimio into ratifying the report as it did not address taxation and the cost of living.
