On Tuesday, ODM leader Raila Odinga’s tour of Meru County entered the second day with a focus on the youth.

Raila who made several stopovers in major towns to address residents was forced to make another impromptu address at Chuka University as students demanded that he address them as he continued to outline his manifesto should he be elected as the 5th President of the Republic of Kenya.

In a video that was shared by his son, Raila Junior, the former PM's motorcade was promptly forced to halt next to the university gate, which is a few kilometres to Chuka town and addressed the youth amid cheers and chants for the ODM chief.

"Unplanned and improvised, the love is overwhelming, Chuka university students blocked the road and forced @RailaOdinga to address them day 2"

Raila Junior tweeted as he shared the video below.

This comes a few hours after a rowdy crowd booed and shouted Ruto chants during the tour at both Meru and Nkubu towns.

The former PM the youth agenda will form a critical piece of his administration. He vowed that his administration would make good use of the big number of youth in the country by engaging them in gainful employment and business.

He also challenged young people to register en mass voters during the ongoing mass voter registration exercise and said failure to register as voters will deny them an opportunity to elect good leaders into office next year.
