Kalonzo Musyoka leaves Kenya to head foreign mission

Kalonzo's first task is to hold a series of meetings

The Wiper party leader will be leading a team of foreign observer mission to monitor elections in the country that has a population of 9 million people.

“We are a group of 24 observers from all continents, most of them with vast experience in observing elections all over the world and we are expected to have an objective look on the good practices of an electoral process” Musyoka stated.

His first task will be leading series of meetings with Central Election Committee and the country’s political players on Tuesday in Baku to be briefed on issues touching on the elections and campaigns.

He will be leading the team under the umbrella of Centrist Democrat International as a section of the candidates have raised alarm over foul play.

The country’s Central Election Commission has cleared 8 presidential candidates for the 11 April polls that will see the incumbent President Ilham Aliyev seek another term in office.

This will be the second time that the Wiper party boss will be leading foreign missions in monitoring elections.

In 2013, he was part of the delegation that monitored elections in Sri Lanka on the invitation of the Commonwealth Secretary-General Kamalesh Sharma.
