Raila Odinga installed as a Kuria elder as the elders back his August presidential bid

Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga is on a campaign tour in Migori county where he is visiting the two Kuria constituencies (Kuria East and Kuria West). The former Prime Minister is taking his Azimio la Umoja campaigns to that region seeking support from the community ahead of August general elections.

During his tour, the presidential hopeful received a huge boost as he was installed by the elders from Kuria community as a Kuria elder, this means that the community is now considering Raila as one of their elders. Apart from that, the elders also backed his presidential bid vowing to support him to assume top seat come August.

This is a huge boost to Raila considering that the Kuria community has never supported his presidential bid before, Raila will now look to reap much from Migori county considering that the other parts of the county has always been behind him. During the ceremony, Ida Odinga was also present to witness as her husband assumed his role as a Kuria community elder
