Deputy President Dr William Ruto termed Azimio la Umoja process of interviewing running mates as impunity and urged Kalonzo Musyoka not to accept to be subjected to the process.
Makau Mutua who is serving at Raila Odinga’a presidential team Secretariat spokesperson urged deputy Dr William Ruto not engage himself in Azimio la Umoja politics.
He said that Ruto should pick Kalonzo Musyoka as his running mate if he so wishes since the process of picking a running mate in Azimio is inclusive and participatory.
“My advice to @WilliamsRuto — please pick @skmusyoka as your running mate if you care so much for him. Your hypocrisy is rich. Leave Azimio matters to us. Stop poking your nose where it doesn’t belong, and is unwanted. Our process is inclusive/participatory. Yours is OPAQUE,” Makau Mutua remarked.
A highly-placed source in Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party listed 2013 presidential candidates Peter Kenneth and Martha Karua, Ms Ngilu, Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya among those expected to face the panel.
In Deputy President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza Alliance, Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, and Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua all from Mt Kenya-are angling for the Number Two seat with the 5.8 million votes from the region’s eight counties being dangled in the negotiations.
