Raila Odinga's tour of Meru County entered its second day on Tuesday, with a focus on the youth.
Raila, who had made several stops in major towns to address residents, was forced to give another impromptu address at Chuka University after students demanded that he do so as he continued to highlight his manifesto should he be elected as Kenya's 5th President.
In a video shared by his son, Raila Junior, the onetime PM's motorcade was forced to come to a halt near the university gate, a few kilometers outside of Chuka town, where he addressed the youth amid cheers and chants for the ODM leader.
"Unplanned and improvised, the love is overwhelming, Chuka university students blocked the road and forced @RailaOdingato address them day 2" Raila junior tweeted.
He urged young people to register as voters in large numbers during the ongoing mass voter registration drive, saying that failing to do so will prevent them from electing good leaders to office next year.
