Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition has unveiled its lineup ahead of the August presidential election.

Speaking at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) in Nairobi on Monday, Azimio presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga named Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua as his running mate.

The former Prime Minister also announced a list of nominees who will occupy various cabinet positions, if Azimio forms the next government.

He nominated Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka as Chief Cabinet Minister. However, the Wiper boss, who was eyeing the running position, rejected the offer to launch his presidential bid at a parallel press conference in Nairobi.
