The 2020 presidential front–runner Raila Odinga was on Sunday, May 22, left heartbroken after a section of residents walked out of his political rally in Narok County.
Raila who was accompanied by 2022 presidential running mate Martha Karua was addressing locals at William Ole Ntimama stadium when hundreds of them walked out setting up an epic struggle for the Maa vote between Kenya Kwanza and Azimio.
In a viral video clip on social media, the residents started walking out immediately after Raila went to the podium to drum support for his presidential bid during Azimio’s day two of vote hunting in the region.
“Hii ni dalili ya kuonyesha yakwamba Azimio imeawapa wanawake nafasi ya ukombozi (This is a sign that Azimio-One Kenya coalition party has given women an opportunity to lead),” Raila was heard saying as the locals walked out on him.
Kivumbi.co.ke could not immediately establish why the hundreds of the residents walked out in protest.
Earlier, Kivumbi.co.ke had reported that during the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party Narok tour, Raila and Karua received a gift from one of the local artists who had constructed a miniature model of the State House.
The elegant portrait was presented to Raila and Martha Karua in what many of their supporters said was to prepare for a Raila Odinga presidency after the August 9, General Election.
While receiving the gift, the former Prime Minister said the warm gesture from the youths signifies his victory in the August poll.
“What an awesome gift. Thank you, Narok! It’s coming home!” Raila shared photos of the gift on his social media handles.
“Hawa vijana leo wamenipatia state house, wameamua kuniingiza leo hii. Wamesema leo hii kwamba hii itakuwa maskani yangu na Martha atakuwa na ofisi kule ndani (These youths have given the State House Kenya portrait, they have said they want by residence to be in state house),” Raila added.
