"They said that Busia is an ODM zone. Is here not Busia? So have you pelted us with stones?", Alende asked as the crowd bursted into cheers.

He said that their main aim is to ensure that the in the August polls, the region must produce both MCA and MP on the UDA ticket.

"Sisi vijana wa hapa tumetumiwa vibaya sana. Tumetumiwa kungoa reli, kutupa mawe na sasa tumeamua kuunda serikali kutengeneza serikali ijayo," which loosely translates to;

"As youth from this area we have been misused in the past. We have been used to destroy rails and throw stones, but we have now decided to form the next government with you," Alande said as the crowd bursted into pro-Ruto chants.

"Ruto, Ruto," they crowd kept chanting as Mr. Alende pleaded with them to cool so that he could finish his speech.
