Siaya county senator James Aggrey Orengo has penned down strong message to Kenyans after his party leader Raila Odinga was accorded heroic welcome in president Uhuru Kenyatta's Mt. Kenya region.

In a bid to woo the Mountain ahead of 2022 general elections, the ODM boss toured Meru, Embu and Tharaka Nithi ahead of Mashujaa Day celebrations which will be held at Kirinyaga county, Wang'uru stadium. 

While celebrating Odinga's grand reception, Orengo through a tweet thanked the Mountain saying they had endorsed Azimio La Umoja campaign by Raila Odinga.

He asked Kenyans to rally behind Mr Odinga ahead of 2022 as he was the One who will bring Kenyans together.

"Thank you Meru, Embu and Tharaka Nithi Counties for firmly endorsing Azimio La Umoja. Umoja ya Kenya inawezekana na @RailaOdinga, " senator Orengo tweeted.

Odinga's Tharaka Nithi tour was however almost disrupted after section of youths chanting DP Ruto's name temporarily interrupted Odinga's rally. 

Here are reactions to Orengo's tweet:

"I wish Hon orengo. one DAY can agree to exchange with Hon. morkomen. He support Ruto and kipchumba supports Hon.Raila. This is the Day kenya will evolve. wake up n Refresh . mbele iko sawa."

"Jimmy tell the king he is naked. He will be humiliated at the ballot even with state backing."
