Kenyans on Sunday marked the International Mother’s day online by showering their mothers with love through thanksgiving posts and special treats. Others also celebrated by sharing memories of mothers who departed and messages of love to mothers who lost their children.
Besides the mother’s day celebration, the weekend was graced by the Absa Kip Keino classic which was held at Kasarani, and the ‘Mwanaume ni Effort’ concert which was headlined by Nigeria’s finest Rema.
In other news, Kenyans are eagerly waiting for presidential candidates Raila Odinga and DP Ruto to officially announce their running mates. According to IEBC, the presidential aspirants are expected to submit their running mate names by May 16.
In Raila’s Azimio la Umoja, a team of 7 panelists has already kicked off interviews for the nominees and is expected to submit its report on Tuesday.
With Kalonzo being one of the most preferred running mates, his allies led by Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jr. caused a commotion after alleging that the panel has plotted to deny Kalonzo the running mate position; a move that they say will force them to cause trouble in the coalition.
A section of his allies have also threatened to exit the coalition should Kalonzo not be named as Raila’s running mate.
In Kenya Kwanza, although it was earlier hinted that DP Ruto had already settled on his running mate, it is yet to be made public. The latest reports however suggest that Western Kenya leaders are strongly advocating for Mudavadi to deputize Ruto.
Who do you think is most likely to deputize Raila & Ruto in the 2022 polls?
