Azimio team threatens to leave bipartisan talks.
Azimio la Umoja leaders have threatened to pull out of the National Dialogue Committee if the issue of lowering the high cost of living is not addressed.
Speaking during a church service in Kajiado on Sunday, October22, Azimio leaders criticized the Kenya Kwanza team for not taking the issue of lowering the cost of living seriously.
“We have one week to finish the work of the talks and I want to assure you, and my leader will assure you that without dealing with lowering the cost of living there will be no deal,” said DAP-Kenya leader Eugene Wamalwa.
Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua accused the Kenya Kwanza team of lacking sincerity in the talks.
“The cost of living must be addressed, and electoral justice must be addressed,” said Martha Karua.
“We have more than 90 days, the talks cannot be concluded without sincerity of the Kenya Kwanza side,” she added.
“The dialogue must be done in good faith, but we’ve noticed there are some people who are not sincere in the whole process,” said Kalonzo.
According to the opposition leaders, the demolitions were being carried out in an inhumane manner.
Azimio leaders condemned the demolitions of houses, schools and churches on the East African Portland cement land in Machakos County.
Azimio leader Raila Odinga regretted that it was so unfortunate for the government to sanction such demolitions without giving enough notice to affected residents.
