Today, Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party took their campaigns to Nyanza region. It was their last day after camping there for a couple of days now. They were led by their flag bearer Raila Odinga and took the opportunity to drum support for him. They asked residents to turn up in large numbers and vote for Raila and said that Ruto is responsible for the high cost of living because he allowed cartels in the agriculture sector when he was the agriculture cabinet secretary.
For that reason, the outgoing Kitui county governor honourable Charity Ngilu has remarked in the issue. She also went ahead and predicted how Raila will perform in the region. On her official Facebook page, she wrote;
"Homa Bay town! The love for Raila Odinga is just on another level. Nyanza we are sorry for daring you earlier. Let’s just all agree to do 99% turnout for Baba."
Ngilu is optimistic that Raila will win elections this time round. For her, she withdrew from Kitui county gubernatorial race and will be supporting someone else. Raila announced that she will be in the national politics and she will get a government position if he wins. She has since used social media to campaign for Raila and critisise deputy president William Ruto and his hustler narrative.
As Raila was in Homabay, his running mate Martha Karua was in Nairobi drumming support for him and urging residents to make sure that they vote for Raila and he will fight corruption which will help to lower the high cost of living. Their competitors have been in Mt Kenya region specifically Meru county where they have drummed support for Ruto.
