Raila takes referendum campaign to Coast
26 September 2014, 19:10
Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga will be at the Coast over the weekend to drum up support for the Okoa Kenya referendum campaign.
Odinga, who has previously been at the Coast campaigning for the referendum, will head out there to stem growing anti-referendum noises emanating from the region.
The CORD leader will look to break up any bit of momentum gained from the trip made by president Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy president William Ruto there in the last one month.
He will also seek to stem the tide left behind by anti-referendum leaders emanating from the CORD coalition in the region.
Deposed minority Chief Whip Gideon Mungaro has been leading the anti- referendum campaign.
Odinga will Saturday be in Hola and Garsen, then Sunday head to Malindi Town and later Kilifi
before finishing the day off in Mtwapa.

Monday, will see the entourage head to Lunga Lunga, Matuga and Ukunda.
He is expected to speak heavily on the dissenting crew within the party.
Thursday, during the CORD referendum forum at the Bomas of Kenya, Odinga urged those against party policy to quit and seek fresh mandate from the people.
" They should either support the party or move on. There is no middle ground here, he said.
" This is time for us to stand up and do good for Kenya. This is time to show we love our country. If there are some people who feel otherwise, then I urge them to look elsewhere, he added.
Odinga will be accompanied by fellow CORD principal Moses Wetangula among other leaders.
