2 days ago
Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his running mate Martha Karua have arrived at Kasarani Stadium where they will make their final pitch ahead of the Tuesday elections.

The duo arrived at the stadium shortly after 2pm to a warm reception from thousands of delegates and supporters who painted the venue with blue, orange and white, the official colours for the coalition.

Jubilant supporters escorted the two leaders with chants of inawezekana from the now popular Lero ni Lero signature song which Raila collaborated with musician Emmanuel Musindi.

The supporters carried posters of Raila while others carried flags of the Azimio Coalition and others blew whistles as they danced outside and within the stadium.

Raila and Karua went round the stadium as they made the grand entry.

The Azimio supporters heeded the party's calls and turned up in large numbers and filled the stadium to the brim.

The ODM leader is making the last submissions ahead of the high stakes Tuesday presidential contest pitying him against Deputy President William Ruto.

It is his fifth stab at the presidency. Inside the stadium, political leaders allied to the Azimio coalition had taken their seats ahead of Raila's arrival.

Earlier, the ODM boss met members of Matatu Operators Association (MOA) at Roasters who endorsed his presidential bid.
