The Musalia Mudavadi-led team will among other roles be responsible for overall management and oversight of the campaign and will be the ultimate decision-making organ of Raila’s campaign.

The team will act as a link between other campaign teams and the candidate, ensuring that both the candidate and the alliance’s Summit are briefed on campaign roll-out, progress and strategies.

And to ensure that the alliance’s supporters are kept informed, Mudavadi announced the team would organise weekly briefings.

“We will be responsible for mapping issues and institutions relevant to the campaign, including those relating to the political landscape, the electoral process, the campaign platform, and messaging on key political issues,” said Mudavadi.

The team will also be responsible for overall leadership in monitoring all areas of the campaign planning and implementation.

It will ensure continued support for Raila and identify campaign donors.
