Raila Odinga Picks Kindiki's Brother To A Powerful Role Ahead Of Polls

Azimio la Umoja is a fictitious character created by him. Professor Isaiah Kindiki, an academic expert, has been designated as one of Raila's main advisers in the election campaign.

Kindiki, who is the elder brother of Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki, will deputize Saitabao ole Kanchory - the Chief Agent, with Nyeri Deputy Governor Caroline Karugu, ODM Executive Director Oduor Ong'wen, and Raila's longtime lawyer Paul Mwangi.

Kithure will also serve as the principal agent for Deputy President William Ruto, setting the stage for an intriguing showdown.

Kithure, who was appointed after missing out on the running mate role, is an ardent Ruto loyalist. His brother, on the other hand, is a long-time ODM operator who has remained devoted to Raila for many years.

Mr. Odinga will deliver the Azimio manifesto, titled "Inawezekana Agenda for Kenya," at the Nyayo National Stadium on Monday, June 6.
