After ODM Party leader Raila Odinga received a rousing welcome in Vihiga County today, ANC Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya colleague Moses Wetangula face a more difficult task in persuading 70 percent of Western Kenyans to vote for DP Ruto.
Today, the ODM leader was in Musalia Mudavadi's backyard, drumming up support for his presidential campaign and the Azimio la Umoja candidates. Raila began his visit to Vihiga by visiting with all of the Azimio leaders in the county.
He subsequently embarked on a series of meet-the-people visits, beginning with Cheptulu. Raila took to social media to express his gratitude to Cheptulu people, and he received a warm welcome.
He then went on a tour of Shamakhokho, Mbale, Esibuye, and Ebukole before hosting a massive rally in Vihiga's Luanda town.
However, other politicians aligned with Ruto's camp have dismissed Raila's commitments to Western Kenyans, claiming that he has made less promises to the region than DP William Ruto, who has committed to share 30% of his government with Western Kenyans.
