Azimio flagbearer Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta are in Nyeri and Nairobi respectively where the two leaders are expected to rally the county behind their Azimio outfit, just a day after laying former President Mwai Kibaki to rest.
Sources within the coalition party indicate the two leaders are expected to escalate their political activities across the country in the coming days, before countrywide joint tours immediately after the selection of Mr. Odinga’s running-mate and the submission of the ticket to the IEBC.
