Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his running mate Martha Karua intensified their campaign with a series of rallies in the vote-rich Nakuru county where they promised to slay the corruption dragon.

Accompanied by Nakuru governor Lee Kinyanjui among other leaders, Raila and Karua exuded confidence they will win the August 9 elections owing to their track record.

The duo said they are the best-suited team to lead the country, taking a swipe at their Kenya Kwanza presidential rival candidate William Ruto and running Rigathi Gachagua saying they cannot fight corruption.

“You all know that I debated with him (Gachagua) last week and he came out bragging that he defeated me but the only place he defeated me is in corruption,” Karua said, adding: “In fact today, the court has ruled against him in an Sh200 million case.”

Separately, in Machakos,  Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka drummed up support for his party’s candidates, urging the electorate to adopt six-piece voting formula to strengthen his party and Azimio-One Kenya coalition at large.

 He said that there was no doubt that Wiper will sweep all elective seats in Ukambani adding that such will empower him as he seeks to be a chief minister in Raila’s government.

 Kalonzo, who was accompanied by Kathiani MP Robert Mbui, Machakos Deputy Governor Francis Maliti, Senator Agnes Kavindu and Machakos County MP Joyce Kasimbi and former Yatta MP Francis Mwangangi urged the electorate to vote for posterity.
