Former President Uhuru Kenyatta has declared that he still supports Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition Raila Odinga.
Speaking after attending the burial of former Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha, Uhuru said that Raila is still his party leader.
Uhuru who addressed residents of Lwanda on his was to Kisumu with Raila Odinga said that although he retired, he is not tired and will continue to exercise his democratic right of political choice.
The two leaders resolved to continue working together with Uhuru declaring ” I supported Raila Odinga in the last election and I will continue to support him because he is a man of truth who wants to unite the people of Kenya”
Uhuru castigated his Jubilee party leaders who want to decamp from the Azimio Coalition to resign and seek re-election instead of causing a rift in the party.
Uhuru’s latest move has however been criticised by Kenya Kwanza politicians who have accused him of lowering the dignity of former presidents. Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot said that by declaring his support from Raila Odinga who has failed to recognize the presidency of William Ruto, Uhuru has set a and precedent and that his retirement benefits should be withheld.
