Quit Azimio or toe the line, Lenku tells Nkedianye

Governor reads the riot act to his predecessor, says gubernatorial nomination is already gone

Kajiado Governor Joseph ole Lenku has told his predecessor Dr David Nkedianye to support the Azimio la Umoja line-up or quit the coalition if he is dissatisfied.

The governor said that the expected competition will be between Azimio la Umoja and the opposing coalition spearheaded by the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), but that Azimio was interested in ending bitter rivalry between candidates.

“The government has a way of knowing who is popular. The survey that has been done shows some politicians do not have popular support and they are the ones complaining. To say that I am leading and will get the Azimio ticket has nothing to do with favouritism,” said Lenku.

Dr Nkedianye has called upon Lenku not to underrate his support base and to call for nominations for the Azimio gubernatorial ticket.

According to Lenku, the presidential and gubernatorial tickets are not up for grabs. “You will get a position once we form the government. Woe unto you if you quit the winning team,” Lenku told Dr Nkedianye.
