PRES­I­DENT, RAILA HUNT FOR VOTES IN WESTERN RE­GION

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta and Cord leader Raila Odinga are woo­ing the crit­i­cal vote bloc that could de­cide the out­come of the 2017 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion. Uhuru last vis­ited the re­gion in Novem­ber last year when he handed a char­ter to Kibabii Univer­sity and com­mis­sioned the Ch­wele-Lwakhakha road in Bun­goma county. He has twice can­celled vis­its to the vote-rich re­gion af­ter learn­ing Raila had or­gan­ised par­al­lel meet­ings. ODM has been hurt by a re­bel­lion in Western but has re­gained ground.
