By Fredrick Ameka

On Friday 8th October 2021, ODM party leader Hon. Raila Odinga took his Azimio la Umoja campaigns in Vihiga County, Luanda Sub County. He was hosted by the area MP Chris Omulele accompanied by Vihiga County governor Hon. Wilber Otichilo, Nyando MP Jared Okello, Kakamega governor Hon. Oparanya, Bungoma County governor Hon. Wangamati, Defense Minister Hon. Wamalwa, Kakamega deputy governor Dr. Philip Kutima among other leaders. He then proceeded to commission a newly build eight class room in Khwiliba Primary School. Hon. Raila also oversaw the ongoing voter registration process in the area. The voter registration process (ECVR) was launched by the IEBC in October 4th 2021. Before arriving at Luanda, Hon Raila first landed at Nyando Constituency where he launched the Raila Oding Education Center.

Earlier before the main event, Vihiga County governor Dr. Wilber Otichilo confirmed that the aim of Hon. Raila Odinga touring Vihiga was to speak to the residents. He also revealed that Luanda town is the hub of politics in Vihiga and the town connects neighboring counties like Siaya, Kisumu, Busia and Nandi. The county governor was speaking to KTN News reporter Willis Lusige who was live at the event.

However, Vihiga County has been one of the strong holds for Hon. Raila Odinga. It's a residential place for ANC party leader Hon. Musalia Mudavadi who is also a member of One Kenya Alliance (OKA). During 2017 general election, Hon. Raila successfully gathered 181, 889 votes over Hon. Uhuru Kenyatta who got 18, 562 votes from Vihiga County.
