The first round of the event was held at Ole Sereni Hotel, graced by the who-is-who in Kenya. By virtue of her own clout and that of her family, she was able to garner support from far and wide with the campaign recording its first success.


Her Husband, non-other than the enigma himself, the right honourable Raila A Odinga, the AU Chief of Infrastructure Development, was in attendance bringing along his entourage of senior government officials and loaded friends.
