, NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 30 – The National Super Alliance (NASA) led by its presidential candidate Raila Odinga is Saturday scheduled to campaign in Western Kenya – what’s perceived to be their stronghold – but under assault from the Jubilee Party’s juggernaut.
The coalition’s campaigns will begin in Vihiga County where the principals will attend a funeral in Serem then proceed for a road show in Shamakhoko, Majengo, Luanda then wrap up the day with a public rally at Mumboha Stadium, Luanda.
On Sunday, the alliance will move to the neighbouring County of Kakamega by attending a church service at Anglican Church of Kenya Mumias.
The Opposition alliance will then proceed for a Roadside address in Mumias and Malaba towns, Shianda Centre, ending the day with a rally at Busia Stadium in Busia Town.
The visit comes in the wake of a renewed tussle between Odinga’s NASA and President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party over the proposed changes to election law.
Odinga has accused President Kenyatta’s team of changing the rules of engagement midway while The Head of State has insisted that the amendments are in line with the Supreme Court ruling.
On Friday, President Kenyatta and his deputy held campaigns in the same region. The duo took their campaigns to Busia, and later attended Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka’s homecoming in Bungoma County.
President Kenyatta will also be in Kakamega County on Saturday where he is scheduled to meet 20,000 local leaders at the Kakamega approved school and later be the chief guest at the homecoming ceremony for Mumias Member of Parliament Benjamin Washiali.
