Today Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga and his close aides toured several towns in the Mount Kenya region where he was in a vote hunt as the race to succeed the incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta continues to escalate with only a few months remaining until Kenya hold another much anticipated general election a race seen to be two horses race between Raila and DP Ruto.
The former Prime minister was hosted by several controversial mount Kenya politicians including the Nyandarua county Governor Hon. Nderitu Mureithi, Kiambu county governor Hon. Dr. James Nyoro, and Nakuru county Governor Hon. Lee Kinyanjui and accompanied by several ODM party legislatures including the Homabay Count women representative Hon. Glady Wanga, Hon. Babu Owino Embakasi east member of Parliament, Hon. James Orengo is among many more Leaders from across the country.
While on his way back to his Karen residence Nairobi, the former Prime minister, and his Convoy were temporarily blocked by elated residents of Juja Town who went ahead to request him to address them before they could proceed with their journey, as they filled the air chanting "Baba, Baba, Baba".
His tour to the region has also sparked mixed reactions today after pulling mammoth crowds in his every stopover, making his diehard supporters allude that the Arabs has already started eating pork meets as recently his political opponent's supporters cited that mount Kenya is like Saudi Arabia and selling pork there won't be easy while referring that Raila is unsalable in the mountain region.
The flamboyant politician also ended his two days tour in the Mount Kenya region in style after he promoted several businessmen/women after buying goods worth millions in the Naromoru market
