Ongwae indicated ealier that the meeting would focus on areas of partnership between their faction and the Kenya Kwanza faction, and he expressed his willingness to collaborate with the new administration.

The former Kisii governor has been an ardent supporter of former Kenyan prime minister Raila Odinga during his 10-year term as ODM governor.

However some Azimio leaders skeptical of Ongwae’s move to join Kenya Kwanza and accused the Ongwae-led team of being self-centered.

Senator Ledama Olekina of Narok stated that the governor should have stuck with the Azimio presidential candidate.

” During the campaigns you supported Azimio but today your greed is taking you to Kenya Kwanza bure Kabisa get some balls and retire honorably” Ole Kina said.

Ongwae is among the leaders who have defected from the Raila faction since the August 9 elections.

Other leaders who have joined Ruto’s camp include the former governor of Makueni, Kivutha Kibwana, the senator from Mandera, Ali Roba, and the member of parliament from Ugenya, David Ochieng.
