Approximately 30 Governors To Attend Raila Odinga's Meeting On Friday

At least 30 governors and over half of members of parliament have reportedly confirmed attendance to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s Azimio La Umoja national convention on Friday.

Organisers say more than 40 senators, 200 members of the National Assembly and 500 ward representatives had confirmed that they would attend the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader’s event at Kasarani stadium, during which he is expected to announce his candidature for President.

“We resolved that, where we have governors, they may take price of the 5 humans per ward and facilitate their travel to Nairobi. where we don’t have governors, MPs and senators will try this. where we don’t have any elected leader like in approximately five counties, the celebration will absolutely finance the expenses of the delegates,” Mr Mbadi defined.

He changed into evasive on whether President Uhuru Kenyatta will attend.

“In my opinion, if the president attends, it manifestly will become a kingdom feature and ceases to be Raila’s event. We want to provide Raila area. I assume it's going to no longer be suitable for [the President] to come back as it will trade the architecture [of the event].”

Former Ford Kenya deputy party chief Richard Onyonka, Jubilee nominated MP Maina Kamanda and a host of ODM legislators toured the venue.

“My birthday party Jubilee and ODM are running together to make certain this occasion is a achievement and we hope to peer a significant crowd on Friday,” Mr Kamanda said.
