The next general election, scheduled for August, is drawing nearer as leaders prepare by traveling across the country to publicize their platform. The two presidential teams today toured the western region, according to reports published on social media sites, where they addressed people and urged them to vote for their favourite candidate.
Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga led the Azimio La Umoja team on a tour of Bungoma County. Residents of Kimilili town greeted Raila Odinga and his entourage with gusto. Kenyan kwanza leaders, on the other hand, continued their efforts in Navakholo, Kakamega County. The Kenya kwanza squad was captained by Hon Cleo Malala, a Kakamega senator who is well-known in the region.
Despite Raila Odinga, who was greeted like a king by a large audience in Kimilili town, the two presidential teams were warmly embraced by the western population. Residents of Kimilili town turned out in great numbers to greet Azimio La Umoja leaders, according to reports published on social media networks. The Azimio La Umoja activities in Bungoma county were particularly active, with the county agreeing to support former Prime Minister Raila Odinga in the August general election. Despite this, all Kenyans are encouraged to keep the peace during this election season.
The Kenya Kwanza squad campaigned today without the team’s leader, Deputy President William Ruto. This comes after he traveled to the United States with other leaders for a series of meetings with foreign leaders. The Amani National Congress party leader Hon Musalia Mudavadi, Governor Salim Mvurya, Elgeyo Marakwet senator Hon Kipchumba Murkomen, and other supporters followed the deputy president William Ruto. Ruto and his team are scheduled to travel for ten days. Regardless, let us keep the peace as we approach the general election in August.
