Raila odinga is facing big challenge of choosing a running mate without a fall out in Azimio la Umoja coalition.
Amongst the leaders who are expected to become Raila Odinga’s running mate include Kalonzo Musyoka, Peter Kenneth, Martha Karua, Charity Ngilu and Hassan Joho.
Azimio executive director Raphael Tuju said that the coalition expects all the shortlisted candidates to appear before the panel and defend their bids for the job “to respect the decision of the coalition’s top decision making organ, the Azimio Council”.
The council is chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta who is also the Jubilee party leader.
Ukambani leaders have urged the Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga to choose Kalonzo since he is very competent and well experienced.
“Hon Kalonzo Musyoka is a very senior member of the coalition. He was part and parcel of the decisions that were made by the council where he sits to form this selec tion panel. If he has issues, he can take them to the council where he sits. We however, recognise that people have freedom in this country to air their views and we respect each and every view.” Mr Tuju said.
” [Kalonzo]… was part and parcel of the decision to form this selection panel. If he has issues, he can take them to the council where he sits,” Tuju remarked.
