Photo of Pres. Uhuru's Key CS in Raila's Nyeri Rally Causes a Stir Online

Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance Flag bearer, Raila Odinga together with his running mate, Martha Karua today held numerous rallies in Nyeri County. Thousands of Nyeri locals attended Azimio La Umoja's rally as they looked eager to listen to Raila Odinga.

Raila Odinga used the opportunity to drum up support for his Presidential bid ahead of August 9th General Elections. He was accompanied by Mombasa Gov. Hassan Joho, ICT Cabinet Secretary, Joe Mucheru and a host of Azimio affiliated MPs.

The presence of ICT CS, Joe Mucheru caused a stir online since he's a Cabinet Secretary handling a serious docket which will be involved in August General Elections. CS Joe Mucheru's Ministry will ensure network coverage across the country for ease of transmission of election results by IEBC.

DP Ruto's allies have accused the CS of engaging in politicians instead of been neutral as expected from him. Kenya Kwanza Alliance brigade have insisted that the ICT CS should resign for publicly supporting Raila Odinga. His presence in Azimio's Nyeri rally has elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans in the following ways;

@leslsygizhomo hii ni picha mbaya Kwa nchi.. Please President Uhuru Kenyatta maliza uende na watu wako

@reggaevybz17991 This is the first time that am seeing an ICT CS campaigning for an ODM Candidate

@eunivewahome I can't allow this.. let's utge Ruto and his colleagues to impeach CS Mucheru

@Dantesowago how can a powerful Cabinet secretary like Joe Mucheru publicly campaign for Raila odinga in nyeri!

@omamgoste Aibu kubwa Kenya..lazima turudishe Sheria ili watu kama Mucheru washikwe.

@nanvyojaa Eeeeeh! Why is the Super CS behaving as if he was elected on an ODM Party ticket to Parliament

@anitawaswa wembe ni ule ule! Vile Ruto alisifu Matiangi 2017 wacha ajionee moto mwaka huu.

@registafahmau please Ruto should make sure that Joe Mucheru is kept away from his job
