ODM leader Raila Odinga got a nod by IEBC to vie for August presidential election. He will now battle with his close competitor DP William Ruto who was cleared on Saturday 4.
The Azimio One Kenya alliance had all reasons to celebrate their bid day. After the Church service, Raila together with Martha Karua held their first rally at Undugu grounds in Langata before moving to Nakuru county.
At Nakuru, Raila was warmly received by mammoth crowd who promised to back his State House bid. He was accompanied by Cs Peter Munya, MP Junet Mohamed, Governor Hassan Joho, MP Babu Owino, MP Raphael Wanjala, Sabina Chege, Charity Ngilu among other allies.
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has reacted to Raila Odinga’s warm reception by huge crowd at Nakuru county.
According to Kipchumba, Raila made a mistake by greeting different tribes using their local language. According to the video seen, Raila called upon Kambas, Kikiyus, Kalenjins, Luhyas and then Luos. The Luos cheered him most forcing Raila to pause his speech.
