PRESIDENT, RAILA HUNT FOR VOTES IN WESTERN REGION
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.
