As the country gets set for a highly anticipated general elections, slated for August 9, the current political scenery is getting shaped up to accommodate whatever an electioneering period brings. The race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta who is on his second and last term in office is unarguably a two-horse between Deputy President William Ruto and Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga.
The choice of a running mate position for the two heavyweights is becoming a headache, with both political outfits, Azimio La Umoja camp and Kenya Kwanza Alliance having to adhere to IEBC call to have them submit their running mates names before April 28.
Speaking during an exclusive interview with KTN News' Morning Prime on Monday morning, April 18, Uasin Gishu county women representative Gladys Boss Shollei allegedly argued that President Uhuru Kenyatta will take part in choosing a running mate for Raila Odinga. The vocal legislator said that Uhuru has taken total control of the Azimio camp and will surely play a bigger role in picking Raila's deputy.
