'Mjinga ameerevuka' Raila Claims Unending Manipulation of His Votes

Azimio la Umoja presidential contender Raila Odinga has made damning allegations about electoral fraud in the country that has effectively denied him access to state house despite the overwhelming support he gets accros the country.

While speaking to ecstatic crowds in Vihiga County who had thronged Luanda grounds to give an ear to his campaign caravan, Raila argued that the region's voters have religiously backed his presidential bids from as far as 2007 to the disputed 2017 elections, but the votes have never counted when transmitted to Nairobi.

Odinga assured the locals that, that error of being victimised periodically is now gone since the handshake which saw his close involvement in government affairs will guarantee fair counting of August polls.

Using his 'Kumepambauka' slogan Raila urged locals to support him for the last, big moment saw that he actualises his vision for the region and country.

Mr. Odinga also used his blood ties with the Luhya community to woo support.

According to Raila several of her grandmothers stretching to three generations hailed from the Banyore sub-tribe hence he is technically a Luhya by blood relations.

Odinga will camp in western Kenya for the next few days as he seeks to safeguard the vote-rich region which is now perceived to be a battlefield due to Wetangula and Mudavadi's association with Ruto's UDA party through the Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
