Dramatic Scenes in Nyandarua as Raila is Airlifted in Middle of The Highway After Competing His Tour

The former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was on Saturday airlifted by his helicopter in the middle of an highway after completing his tour in Nyandarua County.

It is still not yet clear why the incident happened, as his motorcade was stopped mid way, and he entered the helicopter which took off immediately before the vehicles proceeded with their journey.

The residents present could not help but witness the incident that took place after Raila's intense tour in the county where he popularized his Azimio La Umoja initiative.

Earlier in the day, Raila alongside his allies and a number of Mount Kenya Region leaders led by the Nyandarua Governor Francis Kimemia, Nakuru's Lee Kinyanjui, Laikipia's Nderitu Muriithi among others started the tour at Soko Mjinga flyover where the ODM leader criticized Deputy President William Ruto's wheelbarrow politics.

He further affirmed his State Welfare program that will see any unemployed youth earn Sh 6000 stipend monthly.

His trip comes few days before returning to Nyeri County for all inclusive Mt Kenya's mega rally ahead of his grand meeting at the Bomas of Kenya in early December.
