    EALA Candidate Gideon Moi Withdraws From the Race

    Published on

    On Wednesday, November 9, former Baringo Senator Gideon Moi announced his withdrawal from the election for the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA).

    Gideon withdrew his name from consideration so that Azimio la Umoja might select one of his fellow lawmakers.

    Fred Okango, the KANU party’s secretary for political affairs, announced Gideon’s withdrawal.

    Moi was nominated for EALA together with Winnie Odinga, former Mombasa gubernatorial candidate Suleiman Shahbal, and former Shinyalu MP Justus Kizito.
    Former Kitutu Masaba Member of Parliament Timothy Bosire and former Turkana Water and Irrigation Chief Executive Officer Beatrice Askul were also included on the list provided by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) on Wednesday, November 9.

    The Kenya Kwanza squad, meanwhile, put forward fifteen candidates for EALA posts. They put out a slate of candidates that includes Hassan Omar, who ran for governor of Mombasa in August but lost, and David Sankok, a past nominee for the House of Representatives.

    Salim Busidy, Yasser Bajaber, Lilian Tomitom, Cyprian Iringo, Jonas Kuko, Abdikadir Aden, and Falhadha Iman also spearheaded the Kenya Kwanza side, which is commanded by President Wiliam Ruto.

    There are a total of nine open seats on Kenya’s delegation to the EALA, and the two camps are vying for those seats.
