ODM leader Raila Odinga has arrived in Busia County in a hunt for Luyhia vote days after Kenya Kwanza leaders claimed they will deliver 70 per cent of the region’s votes to DP William Ruto.
The former prime minister landed at Butula Youth Polytechnic grounds at 12:17, where he is expected to address an Azimio la Umoja delegates meeting.
Raila is keen on ensuring he maintains his grip of the border county, which has in the past elections supported Raila and the ODM party.
After the delegates’ meeting, Raila will drive through Elugulu ward before addressing a roadside rally at Nambale township.
He will, thereafter, proceed to Amukura in Teso South sub-county where he will address another rally before heading to Busia town for his final rally at 4 pm.
On Wednesday, leaders allied to the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance called on Busia residents to back the former prime Minister’s bid to succeed Uhuru at State House.
The leaders dismissed claims by Mudavadi and Wetang’ula that the two will deliver at least 70 per cent of the Western vote to DP William Ruto.
Busia County Assembly Speaker Bernard Wamalwa termed Mudavadi and Wetang’ula’s plan as a ‘joke’.
