by Amos Khaemba

The Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga took his newly named running mate Martha Karua to a popular fish joint immediately after unveiling her.

In photos that we shared online on Monday, May 16, the two were at the Big Fish restaurant in Westlands shortly after they left KICC where Raila had declared the Narc-Kenya his running mate ahead of the August polls.

From the pictures, the ODM leader and his delegation were seen enjoying brown ugali with fish and a side of vegetables together with some soft drinks.

The restaurant owner Brad Osumo who was excited about hosting the Azimio presidential candidate took to Twitter to share his happiness.

“On this Historic day!! Bigfish served Baba and Martha Karua and I can’t keep calm!!!” Osumo said on Twitter.

Among those who accompanied Raila and Karua to the luncheon include, the spokesperson of his campaign team Makau Mutua, Mombasa governor Hassan Joho, Royal Media Services Chairperson S.K. Macharia, Suna East Member of Parliament Junet Mohamed and Executive director of the Azimio Secretariat Raphael Tuju.

Fish is usually one of the favourite meal for the ODM leader and he has several occasions taken his allies to eat fish in Nairobi restaurants.

In 2016, Odinga hosted Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and six Pangani MPs for lunch at the Ranallo K’Osewe Restaurant in Nairobi.

The MPs had just been revealed from their cell after they were arrested on allegations of making inciteful remarks.

The six politicians included Johnstone Muthama, Mohammed Junnet, Timothy Bosire, Moses Kuria, Kimani Ngunjiri, and Ferdinand Waititu.
