There is no bad blood in the Azimio top leadership, a section of senators allied to the coalition have said.

This comes amid exchanges between Jubilee and ODM MPs and Senators, which has been translated to mean that there is a problem in the coalition.

But Senate Minority Leader Steward Madzayo has said that the coalition principals; ODM leader Raila Odinga and former President Uhuru Kenyatta, as well as the others, are still together and not divided.

Madzayo on Monday noted that himself and other members of the Azimio leadership in the Senate have held talks with the leaders and can confirm that Azimio is still strong and kicking.

“We have had discussions and consultations with our principals and we want to make it very clear to the people that as Azimio, we are one team,” he told the press in the Parliament Buildings, reports The Star.

He was accompanied by Dullo, Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina and Enock Wambua of Kitui.

The Kilifi senator added that there are no plans to alter the coalition’s leadership in the Senate, as had earlier been claimed by Nairobi senator Edwin Sifuna.

Sifuna had claimed that there are plans to evict Isiolo MP Fatuma Dullo as Senate Minority Whip, but Madzayo has made it clear that there is no such plan.

“We hear there is a list of signatures. I want to make it very clear that it does not carry the picture of team Azimio in the senate,” the leader is further quoted.

There have also been fights between the two sides regarding house committee leadership positions, resulting in anticipations that it is on its deathbed, which Madzayo has now dismissed.
