Leaders and elders from the former Mt. Kenya province have told the Luo community that they will always support ODM leader Raila Odinga's bid to become president of Kenya.
As they looked back on the country's history, they recognized there was no cause for a rift to exist between the Luo and Kikuyu populations.
"We are certain that Jakom will be the country's fifth president." One of the elders added, "So we've come to enhance our relationship with you."
Members of the National Assembly, including the majority leader Amos Kimunya, the female MP from Murang'a, and the newly nominated MP Maina Kamanda were all in attendance.
According to the lawmakers, the handshake with Mr. Odinga and the friendly connection between the two communities has already boosted his popularity in Mt. Kenya.
In order to boost Mr. Odinga's vote total, they threw a challenge to the Luo community's leaders and elders: get your people registered to vote!
Let me assist you get registered as a voter within the next 15 days, please," added Orengo, referring to the upcoming elections.
