Big Boost In DP Ruto's Camp As Another Top Leader Decamps Azimio And Joins Kenya Kwanza Alliance

In just a few days, the Azimio team has lost the support of many politicians. Earlier it was the appointment of two OKA officials; Musalia Mudavadi of the ANC and Moses Wetangula. Later PAA party leader Amason Kingi and Development Chap Chap leader Alfred Mutua were also seen abandoning the Kenya Kwanza coalition.

Today, the Azimio la Umoja alliance also lost a member who joined the Kenya Kwanza Alliance. Nakuru County vice-president Dr Erick Korir Kipkoech has reportedly withdrawn the Jubilee party. While the reasons are yet to be determined, Internet users say the reason could be that his governor-general dismissed him for another candidate. Governor Lee Kinyanjui announced his candidacy on Monday and fired his deputy.

"After much deliberation with various stakeholders, I have decided to nominate Ms Francisca Jelagat Kamuren as my partner in the August 9 election," Mr Kinyanjui said in a statement.
