Azimio appoints Tuju its executive Director
Former Jubilee party Secretary General Raphael Tuju has been appointed executive director of Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition.
In the new position, Tuju is expected to coordinate all member parties of Azimio and will lead the strategic and program teams that will work to ensure the coalition's victory in the August 9 elections.
"The appointment, which Hon. Tuju has accepted, takes immediate effect,” read part of a statement by Raila's spokesman Dennis Onyango.
The outfit settled on him due to his decades of experience in politics and governance, having served as a Member of Parliament, Cabinet Minister and Jubilee Party Secretary-General.
Azimio brings together more than 20 political parties that have diverse regional strengths, opinions and a myriad of leadership that represent the face of Kenya.
Its presidential candidate is Raila Odinga, the former Prime Minister and the opposition leader.
Tuju had resigned to engage in active politics and he is yet to chart his way forward.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
