Azimio Selection Panel Resolves To Engage Only Willing Applicants, a Major Blow To Kalonzo

Azimio Selection Panel Resolves To Engage Only Willing Applicants in Raila’s Running Mate Search.

The Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition selection panel searching for Raila Odinga’s running mate has resolved to only engage willing applicants in the interview process.

This is a major blow to Wiper leader, Kalonzo Musyoka who has been advocating for a dialogue.

On Saturday, May 7, the panel, led by Noah Wekesa, stated that it will not waste any more time and will begin the process of scrutinizing the applications.

The Azimio selection panel cited that it will continue with the process of interviewing the present applicants.

However, despite being opposed to the process, the Wiper Party had also submitted Kalonzo’s name.

Apart from Wiper leader Kalonzo, other names that were forwarded include Narc Kenya’s Martha Karua, Governor Hassan Ali Joho, Murang’a Woman Representative Sabina Chege, KANU’s Gideon Moi, and former Gatanga MP, Peter Kenneth and Charity Ngilu.

The panel further adjusted the list of applicants to incorporate Agriculture Cabinet Secretary, Peter Munya, who has been nominated by his Party of National Unity (PNU).

As Kalonzo and his allies remain adamant that he will not face the selection panel.

Karua on the other hand stated that she was willing to be interviewed for the running mate position.

“We also confirm Karua’s willingness and request to appear before the esteemed selection panel on Monday, May 9, 2022,” Narc-Kenya’s deputy secretary-general, Asha Bashir wrote while fronting Karua’s name.

Kalonzo is demanding to have a sit-down with Uhuru and Raila rather than being interviewed.

“I was Raila’s running mate in 2013 and 2017, do you think Kalonzo Musyoka should be subjected to an interview?”

“This is not America. This is Kenya,” he argued while addressing a gathering at Emali, Makueni on Thursday, May 5.
