Raila Odinga is The 'King' Of Western Politics; Photos Of Busia and Kakamega Says it All

Raila in Busia on Sunday.

The Orange Democratic Party leader Raila Odinga has for a very long time been enjoying support of Western Kenya, by the large number of votes that he receives from the region.

But his influence has of recent days come under threat, after the deputy president called in the region for a number of days, which have turned to month.

William Ruto has not only been the one who has threatened the influence of Raila in Western, the Amani National Congress party leader has also made strides to consolidate the western votes.

Raila in Matungu on Saturday, Mudavadi's home turf.

Mudavadi influence is believed to have gone a notch high, when President Uhuru Kenyatta while attending the burial at Mudavadi's home, touched on a possibility of fronting a candidate from another tribe.

But all these can be put to rest from the reception that the Orange leader has received for this two days that he has toured the region.

From the reception that Odinga has received, it is a clear evidence that he still commands the region, as none of the above named politicians has been able to command such crowds unannounced.

Large turn up to receive Raila in Busia.

Raila will be touring the coastal region over the week, to see what has changed politically, since the last time he was there.
