Cotu boss Francis Atwoli has told off the Wiper party stating that members of Azimio must stop putting pressure on Raila Odinga over positions. This comes as the ODM leader is expected to name his running mate ahead of today's IEBC deadline.
Raila Odinga has been receiving intense pressure from the Wiper party to name Kalonzo Musyoka as his running mate. Failure to pick Kalonzo, the Wiper party has threatened to bolt out of Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition.
However Francis Atwoli has told off Wiper party saying they should avoid pressuring Raila Odinga concerning the running mate position. The Cotu secretary general further reportedly told Wiper brigade that they are free to leave Azimio and stop making unnecessary demands to Raila. Atwoli further stated that they are aware of where Azimio will get votes and their presidential candidate should not be instructed on what to do.
"Those who joined Azimio did so willingly and understood the conditions so you should stop terrorising our presidential candidate Raila over positions. You are free to leave!" Francis Atwoli said.
