Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga has appointed former Cabinet Secretary Raphael Tuju as Executive Director of the Azimio la Umoja secretariat.
“The appointment, which Hon. Tuju has accepted, takes immediate effect,” a statement by Raila’s spokesman Dennis Onyango read.
He said Tuju was considered on grounds of being an accomplished communication specialist, and experience in the management of public affairs.
“A communication specialist by training, Hon Tuju has decades of experience in politics and government, having served as a member of Parliament, Cabinet Minister, and Jubilee Party Secretary General.”
As Executive Director, Tuju will coordinate all member parties of Azimio and will lead the strategic and program teams that will work to ensure the coalition’s victory in the August 9 elections.
