Officials of the Coast-based Shirikisho Party of Kenya have differed over its choice of the Pambazuko Alliance as its coalition partner. The division was triggered by Mombasa senator aspirant Hassan Mwakimako, who said the party cannot be run from boardrooms.
"There are about four individuals holding the party to ransom by making decisions at boardrooms oblivious of the reality on the ground," he said. Speaking in Mombasa yesterday, Mwakimako said the party has to associate with a popular coalition if it is to regain its lost glory.
His sentiments were however dismissed by organising secretary Adam Mbeto. Mbeto said the party's leadership decided to join Pambazuko.
