ODM leader Raila Odinga is set to visit Rift Valley to continue strengthening his presidential bid which he is yet to declare.
Raila Odinga will visit the region next week to ask for the support from the region that overwhelmingly supported his candidature in 2007 elections.
The opposition leader will stop at Turkana where he is set to meet ODM delegates then address the residents before proceeding to Eldoret where he will also meet party delegates from West Pokot, Uasin Gishu, Elgeyo Marakwet and Nandi counties.
He is also expected to move to Nakuru where he will meet party delegates from Kericho and Bomet.
The former Prime Minister is expected to continue popularizing Azimio la Umoja during his tour.
Raila while speaking on Wednesday, said that he expects to conclude his tours by the end of this month.
“All the public engagements at the various regions will be completed in October. We have a tight schedule, but I trust we will finish it,” he assured.
The ODM leader is also adamant that he will harvest a good number of votes from the region saying the region still has his back.
“I cannot say they have left me. That is propaganda. I have garnered votes there. I got substantive votes in 2013 and 2017 much as it was not like that which I got in 2007,” he said.
Raila on Wednesday morning also assured the Rift Valley residence that he is still the man they voted for in the past and he has not changed. He also asked the region to give him someone to work with.
“Waiting for the Kalenjins to give me someone I can work with, but I am still Arap Mibei you used to know. I am still the Arap Mibei you used to know,” he stated.
