A group of youths from Nyeri county have planned a birthday party for former Prime Minister Raila Odinga in Nyeri town on Friday.
One of the organisers, Waithira Maruru, said the group, calling itself Young Turks for Handshake Alliance, will hold the event at Baden Powell memorial site at around 11am.
Raila turns 77 years old on Friday and Azimio La Umoja movement supporters are expected at the party.
Maruru said the birthday cake has already been prepared and they are waiting for the big day.
Others invited to the event include street children who will be treated for lunch and also have a chance to share the cake with the opposition leader’s supporters as they sing for the 2022 presidential hopeful happy birthday songs.
Maruru said similar events will also be taking place in other counties countrywide and are being organised by people who support the handshake between the President and former Premier.
Raila will celebrate his birthday at Bomas on Friday according to his handlers.
He has received several goodwill messages ahead of the day.
