The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga has been thrilled after getting a warm reception in Eastleigh, Nairobi.
The ODM boss stormed Eastleigh on the afternoon of Sunday, November 7, and brought the town to a total standstill after thousands of locals came out to welcome him.
Taking to his social media to show off the large crowds that gave him an audience as he popularised his yet-to-be-announced 2022 candidacy, he vehemently thanked the locals for their love.
“I am so happy to greet the people of Nairobi earlier today. Thank you so much,” he said.
Before his tour to Eastleigh, Raila spent the better part of Sunday morning at the Legio Maria in Makongeni, Nairobi county.
Raila’s Legio Maria outfit, evidently a huge break from his usual official or African wear not only made him stand out from the crowd but also left netizens speaking.
The dressing left many social media users talking, with most making fun of it.
