“The event will be a culmination of the Azimio la Umoja meetings we have done all over the country and it shall be the biggest declaration of unity of the country heading to the 2022 elections.

“The date was decided before we left for Dubai but we have met on the sidelines people who will participate in the event,” Junet, who is currently in Dubai with Odinga told the local daily.

According to reports on Nation, President Uhuru Kenyatta is among the high-profile guests expected to grace the event.

Meanwhile, Raila left the country for the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, where he is attending a high-level conference on African infrastructure.
