Raila Odinga is expected to unveil his running mate on Sunday 15, at the historic Kamukunji grounds during a major rally.
According to Raila’s allies, he will also outline his manifesto.
“I wish to invite all Nairobians in a major rally on 15th May 2022 on Sunday that will be held at famous Kamukunji Grounds our beloved the 5th President of the Republic of Kenya Raila Odinga will be the main speaker,” Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Nairobi branch Chairman George Aladwa said.
On Thursday, the eleven-member Selection Panel of eminent persons that was tasked to find a suitable running mate presented three names to him for consideration.
The panel’s Chairperson Noah Wekesa noted Raila will have the final say on who he will pick to deputise him in the August polls.
While choosing the three names, Wekesa said they considered political compatibility, personality, loyalty, their understanding of government as well challenges facing Kenya and proposals on what should be done among others.
Other factors that were considered by the panel include their electability, capacity of votes, electability, mobilization, transformative leadership, political tolerance and technical expertise in political campaigns.
