Former prime minister Raila Odinga on Tuesday took his campaigns to Nyeri County, One of the Kenya Kwanza strong holds since it is the hometown for the political formation's running mate Rigathi Gachagua.
However, several people showed up to listen to what Mr Odinga had to tell them as the scramble for the undecided voters intensifies with only 33 days remaining to the National elections day.
However, governance expert Dennis Nthumbi has alleged how Mr Odinga and Azimio brigade managed to get listeners in Nyeri despite being a UDA zone.
Speaking to K24 this morning, Nthumbi has alleged that people were put to pressure to attend Mr Odinga's rally, adding that Chiefs were mobilized to frog people to the venue of the rally, asserting that some business were closed by the chief in bid to send people to the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya rally.
"There is something unfortunate that happened in yesterday's Raila's visit to Nyeri. The entire provision administration was mobilized to frog people to this rally, we can see the use of force and state machinery" Dennis Nthumbi has said.
