Ahead of the keenly anticipated general elections on August 9th, Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Political Party and Kenya Kwanza Alliance appear to have emerged as Kenya’s two strongest and most powerful political organizations.
Former Vice President Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka, who brazenly abandoned his bid for the presidency to support Raila Amolo Odinga for a record-breaking third time, is one of the important Principals in the Azimio organization.
As nationwide campaigns continue to gather heat, these two camps are seemingly being seen throwing jabs and political “punches” at each other with the sole aim of emerging victorious come August ninth. To some extent,even insulting and inflammatory sentiments do emerge from these two quarters.
Kalonzo is now threatening to reveal corrupt leaders within their opponents’ camp, Kenya Kwanza Alliance, in what has become as yet another imminent political calisthenics or plain gymnastics.
According to Kalonzo, if their adversaries continue to smear his reputation during campaign rallies, he won’t think twice about telling the truth, much to the chagrin of his detractors. This most recent claim made by Kalonzo seems to be a prescription for a new round of political sparring between him and the Kenya Kwanza brigade, who are both anticipated to shoot out at him.
Meanwhile, During a interview at Citizen Digital media powerful women leaders have revealed what they have learnt from women politicians like Martha Karua, Charity Ngilu and Beth Mugo. In their discussion they lauded them saying that they have appreciated the role that women are playing in the politics of Kenya. Beatrice Elachi who is contesting for MP seat in Dagorretti North gave her advice that they have gained support from women like Martha Karua, Charity Ngilu and Beth Mugo who have changed the face of the politics of the nation. Amran Wardere said that she is the only woman who is vying for MP seat in Lafey in Mandera County.
She added that she has changed her mentality that a woman belongs in the kitchen. The politicians revealed that when women join politics it is because they want the issues of women also be considered in the nation politics.
