Nairobi - Luhya leaders wrote a letter to CORD leader Raila Odinga
detailing their demands ahead of the 2017 General Elections.

Kakamega and others in Nairobi all last week.
The leaders are concerned about a number of things ahead of
the 2017 polls.

the elections to enable the ease of voting for one coalition.
