Next week is going to be another week of mixed anxiety and expectations as Azimio la umoja and Kenya Kwanza legal teams will be bruising each other in the supreme court over a petition to be filed anytime soon by Azimio la umoja disputing the gazettement of Dr.Willam Ruto as the president-elect in the just concluded August 9 poll by the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati.
Azimio la umoja will be dependent on Amos wako who was the attorney general of the Republic of Kenya during the late president Moi’s government and part of the late President kibaki’s government.Amos wako is the outgoing Busia Senator and a strong ODM Member.
