In Summary

  • Three weeks ago, Deputy President William Ruto was also in the county to woo voters.

Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga will today kick off his three-day campaign tour of the vast Turkana County.

In the recent past, the Jubilee Party has been making inroads in the county ahead of the August 8 elections.

Mr Odinga will be welcomed by area Governor Josphat Nanok, who is also the party’s national vice-chairman and is expected to push the agenda of the National Super Alliance (Nasa) during the visit.

He will at the same time capitalise on the extended period for voter listing to urge more potential voters to ensure they register as voters.

According to a statement from the Governor’s Press Service, Mr Odinga is expected to start his journey in banditry-prone Katilia Ward in Turkana East constituency, whose member of Parliament Nicholas Ngikor decamped from Ford-Kenya to join the Jubilee Party.

Later in the day, he will fly to oil-rich Lokichar town in Turkana South.
