Lawyer DANSTAN OMARI now believes RAILA will not be elected AU Chairman – See what AU did that will make it difficult for BABA? RUTO in the mix

Tuesday, February 20, 2024 - Lawyer Danstan Omari now believes that Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga might not secure the African Union Chairperson role.

Speaking during an interview, Omari cited potential obstacles, stemming from the involvement of President William Ruto in the AU election process.

“It is unfortunate for Kenyans that Raila Odinga will not get the AU seat. 

"If the AU wanted Raila to get that seat, they could not have appointed President William Ruto to be the person to preside over the elections of the AU Commission,” Omari stated.

The lawyer claimed that by Ruto playing the role of ‘Chebukati’ in the AU elections, he will have a conflict of interest from the perspective of other African countries.

This comes even as Raila’s candidacy has received backing from various quarters.

Through spokesperson Isaac Mwaura, the Kenyan government affirmed its full support for Odinga’s bid, emphasizing the importance of rallying behind a fellow Kenyan for the AU position.

Furthermore, key figures within the Azimio coalition, including Kalonzo Musyoka, Martha Karua, and others, have thrown their weight behind Odinga’s candidacy.
