Smart Africa Media Founder and Managing Editor Elvis Mboya represented the Azimio South Africa Chapter at the event that aims to sensitize turnout of voters in order to guarantee a first round Presidential victory for the former Prime Minister.

NAIROBI, Kenya: The Azimio La Umoja South Africa Chapter [] is facilitating civic education in Nairobi’s Eastland to senticize youth and undecided voters to support Presidential Candidate Raila Odinga and his Running mate Martha Karua.

On Sunday, the team campaigned in Nairobi Eastland’s Embakasi area, in an event attended by a representative of Embakasi East MP Babu Owino, Azimio Party aspirants and about 300 youths in different locations, who pledged to go all out to convince the undecided voters and youth to vote for Odinga and Karua pair on 9 August.

Elvis Mboya, who represented the Azimio South Africa Chapter at the event said that the exercise aims to increase turnout of voters in order to guarantee a first round victory for the former Prime Minister.

He also supported the withdrawal of Odinga from the presidential debate slated for the 26 July because they are not tackling integrity and corruption issues.

“We support Baba’s [Odinga’s] decision to withdraw from the Presidential Debate with a deceitful, vengeful, angry and bullish incoming opposition leader who is not interested in debating real issues like integrity and corruption instead hellbent on discussing personalities and spreading propaganda.

“Baba must not share the same podium with him. Baba must not help him sanitize himself on a national televised platform. Instead on that day, let Baba directly engage the people and address real issues affecting Kenyans.”

He also urged the chairman of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission [IEBC]] Wafula Chebukati to ensure the upcoming elections are free, fair and transparent.

Mboya observed that the policies that Odinga will put in place will uplift the lives of ordinary Kenyans.

He praised the Azimio South Africa Chapter in particular and Kenyans in the Diaspora at large for their continued support for various volunteer groups in Kenya to enable them conduct civic education within underserve population so that voters can make informed decisions on election day.

Andrew Rasungu Ondiege Chairman of Bunge La Mwananchi in Embakasi East called for IEBC to streamline it’s operations to guarantee free and fair polls.

At the event, aspiring Member of County Assembly (MCA) for the Lower Savanna ward on the ODM ticket under the Azimio Coalition David Magoba Odhiambo echoed the same sentiments and urged residents to turn up in large numbers to vote for Odinga and Karua.
