A state of confusion rocked Embu county on Tuesday afternoon after a section of the crowd booed and humiliated the area governor as he tried to make an introductory speech during Raila's visit in the county.
Martin Wambora faced a rough time as he tried to calm the crowd that was chanting pro Ruto slogans. The governor tried to beg the locals to maintain calmness and listen to Raila Odinga but his efforts were in vain. The crowd became more aggressive and started to boo the Embu governor.
It took the intervention of Laikipia governor Ndiritu Muriithi to calm the masses. Nderitu took the microphone and asked Runyenjes people to calm of which they accepted, although not fully. Raila Odinga was then able to pass his message amid the noises from the charged crowd.
He former prime minister has been transversing the country preaching peace through the 'Azimio la Umoja' campaigns ahead of the 2022 general election. He has been to the Mt Kenya East for the past two days.
