The campaigns for president have reached a fever pitch as the leading candidates travel the country in quest of support to enhance their chances in the upcoming elections.
Raila Odinga, the head of the ODM, has been given a boost after his rival George Wajackoyah joined forces with others on Monday to oppose William Ruto's ambition for the position of Deputy President.
According to Wajackoyah, the August election will be considered a success for Kenyans regardless of whether it is led by him or Raila. His actions suggest that he intends to work toward preventing William Ruto from succeeding Uhuru Kenyatta as president.
Garissa county was the location of today's rally that was held by Raila and his running companion Martha Karua to promote Azimio One Kenya agendas. She was with a number of allies, including the Secretary General of the COTU Francis Atwoli, Peter Kenneth, and MP Junet Mohammed.
Karua pleaded with locals to vote for Raila, arguing that he is the only presidential candidate in this election that Kenyans can put their faith in.
On the other hand, after spending a week traveling through the counties of Mombasa, Kwale, and Kilifi, Ruto set up camp in Nairobi for a day.
