The meeting had been convened by President Uhuru Kenyatta who was, however, absent with an apology.

Azimio coalition party leader Raila Odinga on Friday, June 24, chaired the party’s council meeting at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), Nairobi.

The meeting featured the coalition party’s preparations ahead of the upcoming August 9 general elections.

The Azimio Council resolved to encourage the party’s supporters to engage in peaceful campaigns characterized by respect for the views of others.

The Council noted that the move was meant to ensure a stable post-election economic environment which is essential for a united, inclusive, fair and prosperous nation.

The Council further directed the National Coalition Executive Committee together with the Presidential Campaign Secretariat to interrogate the voter register that has been gazetted and report their observations back to the council by June 28, 2022.

The Azimio council also discussed and approved a strategy to synergize the strength brought by each party to the coalition by rationalizing and harmonizing candidates in all elective positions and mandated each constituent party to implement the strategy.

It expressed its satisfaction in the party’s strategy to ensure that their presidential candidate wins with over 15 million votes to form the next government.

It was the second meeting by the council after President Uhuru Kenyatta chaired its first meeting on April 21 at the same venue.
