ODM leader Raila Odinga and his Wiper counterpart Kalonzo Musyoka teams have finally reached a deal on the name of their coalition.
In a press statement on Friday, secretary generals making up the Alliance met at a hotel and revealed that the coalition name is Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Alliance.
This comes after a push and pull that saw leaders allied to Raila maintain that the coalition name is Azimio La Umoja while those of Kalonzo said the outfit’s name is Azimio- One Kenya Alliance.
Kalonzo had reiterated that the name of the One Kenya Alliance must appear in the coalition as they move ahead.
The team agreed to move ahead with the campaigns across the country to popularise the deal.
During the signing, Professor Makau Mutua said that all parties involved had completed deliberations and agreed on the same.
Jeremiah Kioni of Jubilee party, Nick Salat of Kanu, Edwin Sifuna of ODM, Shakila Abdallah of Wiper, Bernard Wafuku of UDP among others attended.
“After this mission, we are going to the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties to make this political party a legal entity,” Mutua said.
He added that the coalition political party will now exist, and will be moving across the country.
