Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party officials from Kisumu County have issued a message to Deputy President William Ruto ahead of his planned visit to the county.
Led by the county branch chairperson Professor Ayiecho Olweny, the leaders insisted that Kisumu remains to be former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s stronghold.
They ascertained the DP that no matter the number of visits he makes to the region, their allegiance to the former PM will not be swayed.
The leaders, however, extended a warm welcome to the DP on condition that he doesn’t speak ill of the ODM party leader while there.
The officials further asked residents who had planned to attend the DP’s meetings to go ahead unhampered.
They also asked those who hadn’t planned to attend not to feel any compulsion to do so.
