  • As the 2022 General Election campaigns enter the homestretch, Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party has publicized the itinerary of campaign activities. 

    A document seen by Kenyans.co.ke shows a heavily packed timetable detailing Azimio’s planned rallies and venues for the last two weeks. The coalition plans to hold 14 major rallies in fourteen major towns across the country.

    These rallies are set to run from July 26 to August 6 when the campaigning period will come to an end. The coalition will on Wednesday, July 27, head to Nyeri county where the coalition members are expected to lead a mega rally at the Ruring’u Stadium. This will be part of the coalition’s three-day visit to the vote-rich Mount Kenya region.

    The Raila Odinga-led coalition will then take its charm offensive to Laikipia County later on the same Wednesday, July 27. The team is expected to address the residents before ending the Mount Kenya visit in Nanyuki Town.

    On Thursday, July 28, Raila will lead his troops to Nakuru County. The coalition will hold a rally at the historic Afraha Stadium before heading to Machakos on Friday, July 29.  

    The Azimio campaign caravan will make its next stop in Narok County on Saturday, July 30, as Raila seeks to solidify his support in the Maa region. The coalition will convene a rally at the Suswa Grounds where Raila has previously held statement rallies. Raila held a major rally at the same venue in the run-up to the 2017 General Election in what was dubbed the “Suswa Declaration”. 

    The Azimio brigade will then take its vote hunt to Raila’s main rival William Ruto’s doorstep in Uasin Gishu County. Azimio members will traverse the county before holding a rally at the Eldoret 64 Stadium on Sunday, July 31. 

    Azimio’s Rift Valley tour will then head to the neighboring Nandi County where the members are scheduled to meet the region’s electorate in Kapasabet Town. 

    The first day of August will see the coalition head back to the Mount Kenya region and pitch tent in Kiambu County. The Kiambu tour will be wounded up in a rally at the Kirigiti Stadium.

    Raila will then head to his backyard in the Nyanza region for a major rally at the Gusii Stadium in Kisii County on Tuesday, August 2. This will then pave way for yet another rally at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega County on Wednesday, August 3. 

    Raila will then head to Kisumu where he is scheduled to attend a rally at the Jomo Kenyatta International Stadium in the Lake City of Kisumu.  

    On August 5, the coalition that brings together over 20 parties will take its campaigns for the Raila and Martha Karua ticket to the Coast region. Azimio is expected to convene a rally at the Tonoka Grounds where Raila has also held major rallies in the past.

    The Azimio faction will wind up its campaigns in the country’s capital on August 6 in line with the dictates of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

    The Azimio secretariat has settled on the Kasarani stadium as its final venue, which is also a change of plans from the initial planned Nyayo Stadium venue. 

    Azimio and rival coalition - Kenya Kwanza - had been engulfed in a dispute after the factions collided over applications to hold their final rallies at the Nyayo Nation Stadium.
