Former President Uhuru Kenyatta is said to be among the senior leaders expected to be present.

Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance will hold its Parliamentary Group meeting on Tuesday with key opposition leaders among them Raila Odinga expected to attend. 

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta is said to be among the senior leaders expected to be present.

Confirming the meeting, Azimio's executive council chairperson Wycliffe Oparanya said the meeting will outline the next plan for the Azimio coalition. 

''Our meeting is scheduled for Tuesday this week at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Foundation. We will inform the public of our next course of action,'' he said.

The meeting comes in the wake of the contentious Finance Bill 2023 that elicited massive criticism among Kenyans.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga is among the leaders who have openly opposed key recommendations of the Bill especially those that seek to add taxes on Kenyans.

In a statement detailing major issues he has raised concerns over, a majority that is in the Finance Bill 2023, Raila said he is not the one hard hit by the additional taxes the current regime intends to impose on some items.

The opposition chief faulted the current regime for personifying his criticisms of issues of national concerns to confuse the masses.

"The issues I have been canvassing alongside all Azimio Party leaders are not about me or any of my co-principals," Raila said.

Among the issues Raila has been vocal about are the instability of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission and the additional taxes President William Ruto wants to leverage to turn around the economy.

Tuesday's Azimio meeting is expected to chart the way forward in forestalling the Bill and will also address the bi-partisan talks that were suspended by the Azimio coalition last week.
