The Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance coalition has chosen Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka to run for Senate Speaker.
The decision was made following a meeting with Azimio MPs-elect held in Kajiado, south of Nairobi.
The meeting was also attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua.
On the other hand, Kenya Kwanza will field former Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi.
After discussions with President-elect William Ruto and other Kenya Kwanza leaders, former Mombasa gubernatorial candidate Hassan Omar dropped his bid to become the next Senate speaker.
"I do not object to this, the position was reserved for Coast and hereby withdraw my candidature," said Omar.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
