RAILA ODINGA meets a HOSTILE RECEPTION in Nyanza – BOOED and HECKLEDPolitics 06:40
Wednesday February 6, 2013 - Prime Minister Raila Odinga met a tough rebellion in Homabay County on Wednesday, after irate youths heckled and booed him as he addressed them at a CORD rally.
The incident started after the PM told his supporters in dholuo to vote for ODM candidates only and ignore other affiliates.
Speaking at Homabay Stadium, the PM told a mammoth crowd to adopt the six piece format at the polls by electing only ODM aspirants at all levels a thing which made the crowd more irritated. There were earlier unconfirmed reports that stones were even pelted at his convoy while snaking through Homa Bay especially directed at Kajwang’s car but the incident was quelled quickly.
At some point Immigration Minister Otieno Kajwang who is running for the Homabay Senate seat on ODM ticket, was forced off the stage as tension generated.
The angry crowds told the PM off and vowed to reject any ODM candidate who was given direct nomination in the whole Nyanza region.
