After a long consultative meeting between the various party leaders under Azimio and OKA coalitions, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka finally declared his support for Raila Odinga presidency at the Jomo Kenyatta International Convention Center on Saturday, March 12, 2022.

This comes after ODM Leader Raila Amollo Odinga was endorsed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and other affiliate parties under the Azimio la Umoja coalition.

During the signing of the coalition’s agreement, Wiper Party delegates and the KANU delegates also signed the agreement to indicate their commitment to the movement and unanimously endorse Raila Amollo Odinga as the Azimio coalition’s presidential candidate.

While addressing the crowd, President Uhuru lauded Kalonzo and other leaders for being selfless and supporting Raila.

“I want to insist that all these leaders, none of them can’t become President, they all do, and most of them have abandoned their ambitions for the greater good and unity of the country and more so Kalonzo Musyoka who has withdrawn his ambitions.”

During his speech, Raila Odinga thanked the delegates for endorsing him and promised to eradicate poverty, create employment and ensure peace reigns in the country.

“You have handed me a strong, broad, and unified platform to stand on and additional pairs of hands to help steady the ship. The nomination comes with a responsibility to lead Azimio to a resounding victory in August and put our country firmly on the path of greatness and prosperity; I will deliver.”

Azimio la Umoja team will go round the country campaigning.
