KANU has submitted the name of Senator Gideon Moi for consideration in the ongoing selection of Raila Odinga’s running mate in the Azimio-One Kenya Alliance.
Despite an earlier statement by Senator Gideon Moi last week on Wednesday urging the selection panel to pick Kalonzo Musyoka, the independence party this publication can reveal handed Moi’s name for consideration – a contradiction of their earlier stance.
”The Kenya African National Union (KANU) proposes and submits the name of H.E Hon. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka as its preferred candidate for the position of Deputy President in the forthcoming General Election. It is our considered opinion, and we strongly believe that Stephen Kalonzo fits the bill and is the most suitable to deputise Raila Amolo Odinga,” a May 5th statement from Senator Moi reads in part.
However a day later on Friday, May 6th a statement from the Azimio Press Secretary indicated Gideon Moi’s name is among the candidates who have made it through its first shortlist.
