Embu: Senator Kindiki Breaks His Silence After Raila Was Heckled By Pro-UDA Locals

Tharaka Nithi senator Prof Kithure Kindiki has finally broken his silence after former prime minister Raila Odinga and his allies were heckled by locals who are deputy president Dr William Ruto's supporters in Embu while on a political trip.

Prof Kindiki, in a coded Facebook statement, suggested that the 2022 presidential race had been clearly defined and territories for respective contenders had been drawn.

"Now a line has been drawn in the sand," said Prof Kindiki.

This comes moments after Raila and his allies from Mt Kenya and other regions across the country encountered angry residents who were ardent supporters of United Democratic Alliance (UDA), Hustler Nation agenda and the DP's State House ambitions.

The first booing happened while the entourage visited Embu town to campaign for Raila's Azimio La Umoja initiative and his 2022 presidential bid. In videos that did rounds on social media on Tuesday, the team struggled to get attended of locals who were waving and shouting dismissively at it. It took a serious intervention by one of the members to calm the crowd before they address it.

The next heckling incident occurred in Runyenjes constituency where youth carrying placards bearing Dr Ruto's name also dismissed them.

Again, on Monday, Raila and his associates experienced another humiliation in Meru when he came face-to-face with individuals who were chanting the deputy president's name.

This comes after the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) chief started witnessing how Mt Kenya region was hostile with him as he seeks to woo some supporters to his side ahead of next year's polls. He has dubbed the region's inroads as 'climbing the mountain'.
