Three days remain until the much-anticipated August 9 general elections, and political players are making a last-ditch effort to make sure that their respective campaigns are successful on Tuesday.
The Kenya Kwanza Alliance and Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition Political Party are reportedly the two fiercest political organizations that are fiercely vying for important election positions as national campaigns enter the home stretch.
Another significant political figure recently left Azimio to join the Ruto-led Kenya Kwaza, dealing the organization—led by Raila Amolo Odinga, leader of the Orange Democratic Movement Party—another devastating blow.
Emilio Kathuri, a Jubilee Party candidate for governor of Embu County and member of William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance Party (UDA), has switched parties just three days before the much anticipated general elections on August 9.
Now that he has renounced his bid for governor, Honorable Kathuri is supporting Cecily Mbarire of the UDA.
This most recent revelation presents a significant threat to the Azimio outfit and Jubilee Party while providing a significant boost to Ruto's camp.
