Giving his speech the jovial Koki called upon the whole Kamba community to remain vigilanat and loyal to Raila Odinga and support the Azimio movement and said that its the only coalition that has a positive plan for change and development.
It was a light moment for all at bomas during the endorsement of Raila Odinga by Muungano and Narc parties when Mwingi West Member of Parliament Aspirant Patrick Koki placed humour in the opening prayer.
As an honor the minister took the opportunity to pray for the event and unlike other leaders he took the opportunity to pray for his bid in Mwingi West a position he has been fighting for in a long time calling upon God’s intervention in his bid and also the people’s support.
The National Rainbow Coalition (Narc) and Muungano parties led by Governors Charity Ngilu and Kivutha Kibwana respectively officially endorsed Raila Odinga for the presidency in the August polls.
The two parties held a joint meeting at the Bomas of Kenya, Nairobi on Friday, and resolved not to field a presidential candidate but instead join forces with the Azimio la Umoja movement.
Narc party leader Charity Ngilu expressed confidence in the choice of Odinga as their preferred candidate, saying the country’s future would be secured.
“We feel our dreams, hopes and resources will be safe in Baba’s hands. As a woman leader and a mother, I know Kenya will be safe in Baba’s hands,” Ngilu told delegates at Bomas.
Odinga, who graced the meeting reminisced of his days in opposition, working together with Ngilu.
“Charity is a fearless woman. I have worked with her before when we were in the opposition,” he said.
The ODM chief called out leaders who have been referring to him as a “government project”, urging his supporter to just laugh it off.
“These people saying Raila is a project…how can I be a project? That is rubbish…,” said Raila, promising to liberate Kenyans economically if elected.
Several leaders allied to Azimio were in attendance including Governors Alfred Mutua (Machakos) Ann Kananu (Nairobi), Defence CS Eugene Wamalwa, Suna East MP Junet Mohammed and Mwingi West Aspirant Patrick Koki.
