On Tuesday, ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga embarked on his second day visit to Mt Kenya East region.
He started his campaign trails at Nkubu before proceeding to Kareri towns in Meru and will later tour Tharaka Nithi and Embu counties before concluding his visits to the region.
It is however his meeting at Nkubu town that was met with a rather cold reception from the locals. While addressing residents in the town, the former premier's speech was disrupted by rowdy youths who shouted him down with DP William Ruto's UDA slogans.
In a video shared by Daily Nation, the adamant Raila, despite the disruptions, went ahead with his speech, ignoring the loud Ruto chants that threatened to disrupt him.
"Umoja? Ruto! Usawa? Rutoo, Usalishaji? Rutoo, Uchumi bora, Ruto" went the rhythm as Raila and the rowdy youths took turns.
Raila was accompanied by Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi, who has hinted at supporting him for the big seat in 2022. The former Prime Minister was forced to cut short his speech after the shoutings became immense, promising that BBI reggae will be back despite the court's ruling
He insisted on the need for equality saying his government will prioritize education and job employment for the youths in the country.
"We do not want to tell our youths Kazi ni Kazi...you should reject wheelbarrow politics" he added
