Kenya: Raila Reaches Out to the Kalenjin

Prime Minister Raila Odinga has asked the Kalejin community to bury the hatchet and support his presidential bid. Speaking at Bomet green stadium on Saturday where the Cord alliance wound up its two day campaign in Rift valley, Raila said he has nothing against the community. "I received much support from this region during my 2007 bid. I cannot dare turn against the Kalenjin come what may," he said.
