Raila Disrupted in Isiolo, Meeting Stopped as Chaos Reign

Raila Odinga was today interrupted in Isiolo by rowdy youths some chanting in support of the deputy president William Ruto. The meeting was finally called off as nothing could continue after Raila was moved in a safe place to avoid the wrath of the irate residents

Here is a video link:

The fact of the matter is that Isiolo is a strong base of the deputy president William Ruto given his massive trips into the region. It's unlikely that Raila will win against William Ruto in Isiolo given historically the region has always supported Ruto for many years given its more of pastoralists.

Despite the terrible incident Raila Odinga was however able to address the people in other places despite chants against him. The fact of the matter is that Odinga has been meeting tycoons and wealth persons something that might have angered hustlers in Isiolo.

Whether Raila Odinga will be able to beat the deputy president William Ruto in Isiolo despite the tough terrain only time will tell. The fact of the matter though is that Ruto has a strong support base across all corners of the country something that might complicate Raila Odinga chances ahead of the 2022 general election.
