The Azimio la Umoja’s running mate selection panel yesterday picked former Kwanza MP Noah Wekesa as its chairman even as politics on the selection of a candidate to deputize Raila Odinga continues to heighten
Makueni Constituency Member of Parliament Daniel Maanzo says his party, The Wiper will not allow their leader Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka to face a vetting panel that seeks to interview several people to pick Raila Odinga’s deputy.
Those eligible must only be members of an Azimio la Umjoja-One Kenya Alliance affiliated political party for the coming presidential election. He argued that Kalonzo has deputised Raila twice and no interview was done.
Kalonzo’s camp has on the other hand engaged top gear in its quest to land the number two slot in Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Alliance. Last evening it emerged that they will suspend campaigns for Azimio’s presidential candidate Raila Odinga until their man gets the slot.
