Raila Odinga Rallies Supporters In Nairobi Ahead Of Resumption Of Protests

Odinga has accused Ruto of stealing last year’s election and of failing to control surging cost of living

Kenyan opposition leader, Raila Odinga, led a cavalcade of cars through the streets of Nairobi on Friday, shortly after his return from a trip to Dubai.

In a festive atmosphere, the large crowd of supporters followed his convoy through the streets of the city as it made its way to a rally in the district of Kibera.

They have been struggling to make ends meet in the face of high prices for basic goods and a plunging local currency. A record drought has left millions hungry.
