ODM leader Raila Odinga will be in Nakuru city this afternoon to drum up support for his Azimio la Umoja rallying call and his bid to be president in 2022.
According to sources, the former prime minister will start his day at the Nakuru ACK church where he will be attending the funeral service of former Nakuru mayor Joseck Thuo before holding a series of roadside stops which will culminate with a public rally at the Mazembe Grounds in Kaptembwa.
Former Molo MP, Njenga Muigai says today’s visit by Mr. Odinga is critical especially for the people of Molo, Kuresoi, and Njoro who usually are faced with hostility after every election period.
”Raila being who we know has been so consistent to see Kenya become a country we all want it to be. There are areas in this county that relate to the Azimio la Umoja call and are part of it. This is the message we are taking to the people today,” former Molo MP Njenga Muingai said.
Nakuru governor Lee Kinyanjui and a host of leaders from the county as well as Mr. Odinga’s allies from Mt Kenya are expected to attend the Nakuru rallies.
To demonstrate his resolve to bring the country together, the ODM leader will be contesting for the top seat in August this year on Azimio La Umoja coalition party ticket – a new political machine founded on the platform of unity and peaceful co-existence.
