On Sunday afternoon in Nanyuki town, a dramatic scene unfolded as the ODM party leader toured the area. When Raila Odinga made a brave entry into Laikipia county, he was accompanied by a number of leaders.
As the governor of Laikipia attempted to deliver his speech, an enraged Crowd booed and heckled him. Nderitu Muriithi was invited by Raila to give a speech to the citizens of Nanyuki town, but he was humiliated as a result.
Angry youngsters chanted down the governor, preventing him from giving a speech. Muriithi tried unsuccessfully to persuade the throng to calm down.
As a result, the former prime minister had to interfere and cut the governor's speech short. Odinga walked ahead and calmed the crowd, asking them to keep the peace. Odinga then went on to energise the youth by repeating some of Babu Owino's favourite phrases (like tibim and tialala).
With the passage of time, the convoy was able to regain its composure and leave Nanyuki town. James Orengo, Gladys Wanga, Moses Kajwang, Edwin Sifuna, and Governor Nderitu Muriithi were among the leaders who joined Odinga.
