- Azimio leaders skips Prayer meeting.
- The opposition coalition poked holes at the national event noting that it strayed from its real purpose
The Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition did not take part in the National Prayer Breakfast today at the Safari Park Hotel Nairobi.
In a statement, Azimio led by former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga revealed that it received an invitation to the event.
“Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party wishes to confirm that its leaders received an invitation to the National Prayer Breakfast scheduled to take place at the Safari Park Hotel tomorrow, 7th June 2023.The party, we believe the times require that as a country, we should approach our Creator and the Protector of our nation with honesty and humility and also talk to our people truthfully, frankly and boldly on the issues facing the nation today,” the statement read in part.
However, the opposition coalition poked holes at the national event noting that it strayed from its real purpose of offering the atmosphere the country needs for humility before God.
Azimio added that the event is likely to have displays of arrogance and superiority battles mainly orchestrated by leaders from the Kenya Kwanza government.
“If past events where we have shared platforms with Kenya Kwanza are to serve as a guide, Azimio is convinced that the National Prayer Breakfast does not offer the environment the country needs for humility before God, honesty with citizens and respect between leaders.
The coalition however announced that its members of parliament are free to attend the function.
