Kenyans React After James Orengo Sends This Heartwarming message To Githurai Residents

Monday was perhaps among Raila Odinga's busiest days over the past one week as he embarked on hunting for votes in the Mt Kenya region. He started the day in Nanyuki, then Karatina, Sagana, Makutano, Kenol, and eventually Githurai. All day, he rallied Kenyans in the region to support his presidential bid ahead of next year's general election. William Ruto is believed to be his biggest opponent in the region, considering the immense campaigns he has carried out in the region.

Githurai was brought to a standstill as the former Prime Minister rose and began listening to him. Judging from the crowd, it is safe to assume that the ODM leader has got some support from Kenyans living in the area.

Reacting after the event, Siaya county senator— James Orengo thanked Githurai residents for the heroic welcome his party leader and the convoy was given.

"Asanteni sana Githurai, we are grateful for the warm welcome," wrote James Orengo in his official Twitter handle.

His message to the Githurai residents drew reactions from Kenyans, who began challenging the popularity of their preferred candidates throughout Kenya. Others ridiculed the ODM leader while others promised to support the former prime minister.

Here are some of the reactions from Kenyans online:
