He will then proceed to Manga Stadium in Kitutu Masaba for the second and final leg of the political rallies in a county seen as a possible swing zone although the opposition got more votes from there in the last elections.

Nyamira County Assembly Speaker Joash Nyamoko, who is running for the North Mugirango parliamentary seat on the Jubilee ticket, told the Nation Wednesday that they were still awaiting for a full programme from the DP's handlers.
