A section of Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition leaders on Sunday vowed to make reducing the spiralling cost of living a priority in the national dialogue committee report that they are set to start writing next week.

Speaking in Vihiga county, the Azimio brigade in the committee led by Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka said they will not even contemplate forwarding the report to Parliament should it fall short of people's expectations.

DAP-Kenya Party leader Eugene Wamalwa who is equally a member of the national dialogue committee, vowed not to sign the committee report should it fail to capture recommendations on how the Kenya Kwanza administration should address the spiralling cost of living as a matter of urgency.

ODM Party Secretary General Edwin Sifuna, Vihiga Senator Godfrey Osotsi and a host of other leaders in the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition added their voices to the high cost of living that they said the national dialogue committee must address.

The leaders have faulted President William Ruto’s administration for the high cost of fuel which has had repercussions on the cost of living, together with the recent arbitrary increase in Immigration and Citizen Services charges that will see Kenyans pay Ksh.1,000 to get a national identification card.

They were addressing a rally in Luanda after attending a church fundraiser.
