Azimio La Umoja affiliate parties are now demanding to see the coalition document after it has been established the contents were not revealed.
It is anticipated that the coalition will face disagreements jeopardizing the coalition agreement, with some parties objecting to the document naming.
They are questioning the secrecy surrounding the document, which they claim was hurriedly given to them last Saturday while the principals were rushing to a rally in Jacaranda on the understanding that they would read it later.
Wiper Secretary-General Shakila Abdalla said her colleagues only signed the last pages bearing the names of their respective party leaders.
“We were to be called to go through the document later,” she said yesterday.
Two days after the March 12 event, Kalonzo Musyoka said the parties had signed up for a coalition named Azimio One Kenya, drawing protests from the Odinga camp.
“And the name is Azimio One Kenya. That is the name of the grand coalition, which will then be registered under the amended Political Parties Act,” Musyoka said.
“Deputy President William Ruto started campaigns immediately after they were re-elected in 2017 because he was focused on the presidency. I will start my journey to the State House a day after the swearing-in of Raila as president,” he said.
Sources said the contentious issues are the name and slogan of the alliance, zoning and fielding of candidates, the presidential running mate, and the party’s structure.
