Azimio unveils Kalonzo, 4 others to face KK team in fresh talks

The Azimio coalition has announced the five members who will represent it in the proposed new discussions with Kenya Kwanza.

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka will lead the group, which will also include Minority leader Opiyo Wandayi, Eugene Wamalwa, Okong’o Omogeni, and Malindi MP Amina Mnyanzi.

Kenya Kwanza is also anticipated to reveal its five-member team for the ten-member committee.

“Our position remains that no party to these negotiations can claim a right to determine for the other what to raise and what not to raise,” Azimio said in a statement on Monday.

The talks will be facilitated by former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Azimio said they will respect the issues that the Kenya Kwanza side will raise during the talks and expect them to do the same with their issues.

The Opposition outfit said the team has instructions to raise five substantive issues.

These are the cost of living, audit of the 2022 elections, bipartisan reconstitution of the IEBC, inclusivity in national affairs and respect of political parties in line with the Constitution.

“Azimio is keen on a time-bound programme that should take one month beginning from August 1, 2023,” the Raila Odinga-led coalition said.
