White smoke is nigh at the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition after the selection panel appointed to recommend a running mate for Raila Odinga announced that it would be handing over its report and recommendations on Thursday, May 12.

This follows the conclusion of the interviews scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.

According to initial reports reaching the news desk, the report bearing the name of the successful candidate was supposed to be forwarded on Wednesday but the handover was postponed to Thursday.

Raila Odinga Presidential Campaign Secretariat Press Secretary Dennis Onsarigo said that the Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate was likely to get the names on Thursday.

According to media reports, three names will be submitted to the former prime minister who will pick one of the recommendations.

The chair of the panel, Noah Wekesa said that the postponement was occasioned by Odinga's trip to the Coast region.

"He has assured us that he will be here tomorrow so we ask you (media) kindly to be here tomorrow but we are going to be very specific we will call each and everyone of you to give you the time and venue for the presentation of our report," Noah Wekesa said.

Among those who attended the interviews include Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua, Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, Murang'a Woman Rep Sabina Chege, and former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth.

Speaking shortly after coming out of the interview session held at Nairobi Serena Hotel, Ms Chege described it as a good experience.
