Raila humiliated in Kericho

This is contrary to the relative warm reception Raila received early this week in Kiambu.

It is no secret that the ODM party leader is an experienced, witty and strategic politician who has been around to know how to read crowd emotions and sometimes even convince a hostile crowd to listen to him.

However despite deploying his best charm he could not get residents of Kericho on his side.

While addressing residents of Kapsoit, Raila was repeatedly heckled and booed after stating that agri-business was performing badly in the region.

“ Biashara ya kilimo imeanguka, kweli, urongo?  Translated to: ‘farming business has taken a dip true or false?”  He posed to the crowd which rudely replied Urongo, False.

Attempts by the Veteran politician to connect with the crowd by citing poor roads and farmers plights also fell on deaf ears.

The residents kept shouting Liar! Liar! And chanted Jubilee slogans forcing Raila to cut short his speech and hand over to Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto.

This is contrary to the relative warm reception Raila received early this week in Kiambu, another Jubilee stronghold where residents turned up in large numbers to be addressed by him.

Isaac Ruto addressed the crowd in his native Kalenjin tongue and campaigned for the Chama cha Mashinani (CCM) candidate in the area.
