The greater Kisii will in the next two days host political heavyweights Deputy President William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
Ruto will be in Kisii and Nyamira on a two-day campaign from tomorrow, while Raila will be attending the funeral of the father of journalists Calvin and Dennis Onsarigo at Igare in Bobasi, Kisii, on Friday.
The DP will be in Nyamira tomorrow and in Kisii on Friday to raise funds for boda boda operators and churches. His host will be Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi.
“The people of Kisii and Nyamira are ready to welcome the deputy president on Thursday and Friday purely to carry out fundraisers to support churches, women’s groups and the youth,” said Mr Maangi.
He will be at Kebirigo in West Mugirango and Miriri in Kitutu Masaba and on Friday at Kenyenya in Bomachoge Borabu.
Gusii Parliamentary Caucus chairman Joash Nyamoko called on the people of Kisii and Nyamira counties to turn up in large numbers to welcome Ruto.
The North Mugirango MP appealed for political tolerance and said the people of Gusii would not like to see a repeat of what happened last month when some youths burned tyres in Kisii town and littered Nyamarambe Stadium prior to Ruto’s tour.
