The planned rallies in Kisii and Nyamira won't take place as planned after high ranking officials wrote to the press calling them off. This was confirmed by the secretariat’s press secretary, Mr Dennis Onsarigo.

According to a local daily, there has been internal war angling between Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati and Kisii Governor James Ongwae. The two are said to be eyeing the top seat in the County ahead of August's general elections.

“We will hold the rallies. Those opposing the meetings will just have to join us. I’m inviting all Azimio leaders in Gusii to join us during these events. Our main agenda is to drum up support for [Mr Odinga],” Mr Arati said in defiance.

Speaking in Kisumu City, Ongwae said the meeting was to happen after rallies in Siaya and Bondo and also added that only elected leaders from Nyanza have been invited.
