‘Acha Baba Aitwe Baba’ Raila Wins Millions Of Hearts After Kenyans Waking Up To His Cleaver Move
Kenyans have been left saying “Wacha baba aitwe baba” after waking up to his clearest move to win a majority of seats in Parliament and the Council of Governors.
Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga is dangling state jobs for various electoral candidates to be axed in an elaborate scheme to shore up his numbers in Parliament, as the coalition’s top decision making organ chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta meets today (Friday) to finalise the decision.
President Kenyatta, who is the Azimio Coalition council chairperson, Wednesday convened the second council meeting to be held at Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) today to deliberate on various strategies to win the August 9 elections as campaigns enter the homestretch.
Among the strategies is a controversial plan to weed out ‘weak candidates’ using opinion polls.
The Head of State, who is the Chairperson of the council, stated that the meeting will be chaired by party leader and presidential aspirant Raila Odinga.
Among the agenda for the meeting, as seen in the notice by Citizen Digital, include reviewing, formulating and/or approving party policies.
The coalition council is also set to review the party’s campaign strategy and plan, which includes but is not limited to; ensuring Odinga wins the 2022 presidential race, as well as ensuring Azimio forms the next government and the majority of Parliament in all 47 county assemblies.
Among coalition council members expected to attend include: Odinga’s running mate and Narc-Kenya boss Martha Karua, Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka, KANU Chairman Gideon Moi, Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu and her Mombasa counterpart Hassan Joho.
Others are Taveta MP Naomi Shaban, Kanduyi legislator Wafula Wamunyinyi, Murang’a Woman Rep Sabina Chege, Abdi Noor Omar Farah and Suna East MP Junet Mohamed, who is the party’s National Coalition Executive Council Secretary-General.
Azimio is targeting Nairobi, Western, Eastern, and Coast, as well as parts of Rift Valley and Mt Kenya regions, where the Kenya Kwanza Alliance is likely to win seats and deny it a majority in county assemblies, the Senate, National Assembly and in the Council of Governors.
