Ole Kiyiapi Speaks on Azimio Running Mates, Reveals His Favourite Candidate to Deputise Raila Odinga

Ole Kiiapi's The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party has not yet named the running partner who will assist Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) presidential candidate Raila Odinga in the August 9 polls.

As the interviews for the role have been arranged, coalition parties have proposed several candidates for the position. However, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka stated that he was the best candidate, but insisted that he would not go before the panel.

According to former presidential candidate James Ole Kiyiapi Azimio, the panel's consultations should be conducted in secrecy, with great intensity, and on a broad scale. In addition, he suggested that a woman should be chosen for the role.

He said that National Rainbow Coalition of Kenya (NARC-K) party leader Martha Karua, Charity Ngilu of the Communist Party of Kenya, and Sabina Chege of the Jubilee party topped his list.

"My opinion about the Running Mate business AZIMIO Advisory Committee consultations should be quiet, intense, and extensive. Perhaps we could also investigate smaller communities. Long overdue, we NEED a female DP!" Martha Karua, Charity Ngilu, and Sabina Chege are at the top of the list," he tweeted.
