Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) boss Raila Odinga will today (Friday 14, January 2022) make a one-day tour of Taita-Taveta County where he is expected to perform the official launch of several water projects undertaken by both the local County Government and address public barazas.
A statement his communication team said,”The water projects are in Maktau and Overseer areas which have been badly affected by shortage of water for over the years.”
“He will thereafter address two rallies; one at Overseer town and another one in Mwatate town where he is expected to give the message Peace, Love, Hope and a Prosperous Kenya through his Azimio la Umoja initiative.”
The former premier will be received by the local leaders supporting the Azimio La Umoja led by the Taita Taveta county Governor Granton Samboja.
Raila is returning to the Coastal region to drum up support for his quest as the Fifth president of Kenya.
The Coastal region has voted overwhelmingly for the ODM party leader in the previous unsuccessful bids for presidency. Taita Taveta has 155,716 registered voters and 354 polling stations.
