Raila Meets Narok Leaders in Nairobi Ahead of His Saturday Narok Tour to Popularize His 2022 Bid

Raila Odinga, the former prime minister, hosted Narok leaders in Nairobi today for a consultative meeting ahead of his Saturday tour of the country to promote his 2022 presidential ambitions.

Raila and Narok authorities discussed Raila's impending Saturday visit to the county. Numerous county leaders affiliated with his Azimio La Umoja movement attended the meeting, which was convened by Narok senator Ledama Olekina. Junet Mohammed, a Suna East politician, was also in attendance.

Narok senator Ledama Olekina tweeted on his official Facebook page: "We met with Raila Odinga earlier this afternoon to discuss his upcoming visit to Narok South Constituency."

Raila Odinga and his campaign team will tour various regions of the Narok South and Narok West constituencies in order to raise awareness about his presidential quest. He will stage a big rally at Narok South constituency's Ewaso Nyiro market.

On Saturday, the 5th, he will visit Ewaso Nyiro market and hold a gathering in Masaandari, Olulunga ward to solicit support from the people of Narok South and West for his 2022 presidential bid, senator Ledama Olekina stated.

Senator Ledama Olekina also invited all Narok County people, particularly those from Narok South Constituency, to turn out in big numbers to greet his party leader Raila Odinga upon his arrival in the county.

"I invite everyone to join the Azimio La Umoja movement," senator Ledama Olekina stated.

Raila Odinga's pointman in Narok county is Ledama Olekina. He was elected in 2017 on an ODM party ticket. The outspoken politician is interested in succeeding Governor Ole Tunai as Narok County's next governor on an ODM ticket.

Raila Odinga is locked in a battle with Deputy President William Ruto for control of the region's votes ahead of the 2022 elections. Numerous figures from Narok and Kajiado counties have joined his Azimio La Umoja campaign, which is spearheaded by Kajiado Governor Joseph Ole Lenku.

Raila Odinga launched his presidential campaign in a formal capacity last Saturday at Thika stadium. He met yesterday in Naivasha with around twenty-six governors for a consultative forum. County chiefs have unanimously endorsed Raila Odinga's presidential bid.
