Raila Odinga is in Uasin gishu county to drum up support for his presidential ambitions ahead of next Next year's general election. He seeks to woo more voters from Dp Ruto's stronghold.
He said organizing youths to destabilize rallies is uncalled for and should not be tolerated at all costs.
He said “I wish I was in Eldoret but I am on my way there. I have told my supporters and my people to welcome Raila Odinga in Eldoret. I have told them to allow him to sell his agenda without fear of facing any violence or being shouted down".
He added that “Everyone should be granted an opportunity to voice their agenda. We should not plan to disrupt rallies of our opponents or hire people to heckle them. That type of politics is old-fashioned and is no longer acceptable. We welcome Raila and encourage residents to embrace peace since Eldoret is a metropolitan town".
Politics should be conducted maturely something which we have failed in. Most politicians organize innocent youths to cause chaos in rallies of their perceived competitors.
Can Raila Odinga conquer Rift Valley region?
