NASA leaders move rally date to attend Bethuel Kiplagat’s burial

The burial of former TJRC chairman Bethuel Kiplagat (pictured) planned for Saturday in Nandi has caused the opposition NASA chiefs to move its major rally in Eldoret to Sunday.
Kiplagat will be buried in Mosoriot, where key politicians, including President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto, are expected.
Raila will camp in the North Rift region for three days, starting tomorrow in a bid to woo voters in Ruto’s backyard.
This comes as pollsters indicate Ruto is gaining ground in the region. Eight former MPs have also decamped from Jubilee and are leading Raila’s campaigns in the region.
NASA will hold a series of rallies in Uasin Gishu, Elgeyo Marakwet, Baringo and Nandi counties from today, which are considered Jubilee strongholds.
Uhuru and Ruto campaigned in the region three weeks ago.
Tomorrow, NASA will split into three teams and hold rallies in several areas in Elgeyo Marakwet, including Tot, Kapsowar, Tambach, Chepkorio and end with a major joint rally in Iten town.
On the same day, Raila will lead the NASA brigade in Nandi to campaign in Tinderet, Lessos, Cheptarwai, Kabiyet, Mosoriot, Serem, Kobujoi and Kaptumo before having a major rally in Nandi Hills.
On Sunday, NASA will be in Eldoret for a leaders’ meeting, then hold a media briefing before hosting the main rally in the region, which will be at the 64 Stadium in Eldoret town. NASA held its first joint rally there on February 25.
