Raila’s Rally Interrupted as VIPs Fight on Podium – Kenyans.co.ke
Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga and leaders from the Ukambani Region during a rally in Athi River on Sunday, June 12, 2022.
Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga was on Sunday, June 12, forced to cut short his speech in Athi River after a fight broke out at his VIP dais.
Odinga, who was on a tour of the Ukambani region, witnessed the ugly faction wars between his supporters in Machakos County.
Trouble started when Azimio Chief Minister nominee Kalonzo Musyoka asked Chama Cha Uzalendo party leader Nzioka Waita to shelve his gubernatorial ambitions in favour of Wiper’s Wavinya Ndeti.
Waita’s supporters were not happy about the remarks given that the former State House Chief of Staff had stuck with Raila even after the fallout with Kalonzo.
When the former Prime Minister rose to address the crowd, he referenced Kalonzo’s request but did not give a conclusive directive – only promising that a deal would be struck.
Odinga’s speech was followed by a commotion in the VIP podium where two gentlemen were seen exchanging blows
In the video seen by Kenyans.co.ke, Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu was captured dashing towards Raila, where she got cover behind the former PM before the Azimio media team cut the livestream.
