@Aleckeei We shall officially have A runoff. Even in Raila Odinga’s speech, he has said he is happy to be the Azimio la Umoja candidate. Not Azimio One Kenya Alliance candidate.
Kalonzo we kambas won’t waste our votes voting for you coz we all know you won’t win. Take that Azimio PM position then upange kazi hili ukuwe a strong candidate for presidency in 2027
Results za election: Kalonzo atafuata wajackoya wa bangi hapo chini.
We umetuangusha kama Kamba community,you signed agreement documents in Azimio which you never knew? You’ll be a proud distant third
@michaelkamene Choices have consequences; they will cost you big time. How I wish you teamed up with other generals.
Duncan KE: @duncan_kyalo17 A big massive move, now the Kamba nation will have a say in negotiations in case of a run-off after the August general elections.
