Final submissions: Raila pitches camp in Kasarani as DP Ruto stations rally in Nyayo Stadium
As election campaigns come to an end, all the four presidential candidates in the 2022 elections are ready for their last grand rallies as they attempt to woo the hearts of the electorate to their side.
According to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) timelines, August 6 marks the end of the three-month campaign period which officially kicked off on May 21.
With only three days to the polls, Azimio la Umoja One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his main adversary Deputy President William Ruto who are both perceived as the leading contenders in the race to State House will be staging their rallies in the country’s capital.
The Azimio chief is set for a mega rally at Moi International Sports Centre in Kasarani while DP Ruto who is running on a Kenya Kwanza ticket will be rallying his supporters in an eventual gathering at the historic Nyayo Stadium.
Odinga who says he is running on an ‘integrity motivated’ platform, is making a fifth stab at the presidency with a promise to fight corruption and revamp the country’s economy.
Odinga will be seeking to compel his supporters with a final plea in a bid to vote him as the best successor to outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The Kenya Kwanza front man who labels himself as the ‘Hustler-In Chief’ and has over time portrayed himself as the champion of the poor and downtrodden, aims to succeed his boss by promising to revive the country’s economy and end state capture.
The other two candidates, Roots Party flag bearer Prof. George Wajackoyah and Agano’s David Mwaure who have been perceived as the underdogs in the 2022 contest will also be pitching their last campaigns around the City.
Mwaure pledges to bring a new face to politics vowing to ‘sanitize’ the political arena and eradicate the corruption menace.
Likewise, Prof Wajackoyah who has been at the heart of controversies over his bold stance on legalising Marijuana, believes hemp is the ultimate solution to generating capital and settling the ballooning debt of the country.
