Prominent figures who skipped Raila ‘bombshell’ rally in Kamukunji


Some of Raila’s closest allies, notably ODM deputy leader Hassan Joho, who has been abroad since December of last year, did not attend Monday’s rally by Raila Odinga, the head of the opposition.

Several other prominent members of the Azimio la Umoja coalition party did not attend the event too.

Former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth, ODM national chairman John Mbadi, and Cotu secretary general Francis Atwoli were absent.

Gladys Wanaga, the governor of Homa Bay, was also absent because she had to attend a consultative meeting of the governor’s land, housing, and development committee.

Governor of Mombasa Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir, who recently met President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua, was also absent at the rally.

Additionally, all significant Jubilee MPs skipped the meeting hours after President William Ruto had hosted them at State House.

Joseph Githuku (Lamu Senator), Sabina Chege (nominated MP), Irene Njoki (Bahati Mp), Zachary Kwenya Thuku (Kinangop MP), Shadrach Mwiti (South Imenti MP), Amos Mwago, (Igembe Central MP), Dan Karitho, (Lamu West member MP), Mark Mwenje, (Embakasi West member MP), and Kanini Kega, (EALA member) are among the Azimio members who skipped the rally.

After visiting South Africa, Raila announced that he will drop a “bombshell” when he returns.

At JKIA, he was welcomed by former defense cabinet secretary Eugene Wamalwa, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua, and Jubilee Party secretary general Jeremiah Kioni.
