CORD presidential candidate Raila Odinga will today tour Kisii and Nyamira counties as the war for the Gusii vote intensifies.
Raila will address rallies at Rigoma in Kitutu Masaba and Nyanturango in Nyaribari Chache constituencies.
His visit comes a two days after his Jubilee rival Uhuru Kenyatta and Amani's Musalia Mudavadi concluded a two day tour of the counties.
Uhuru and Mudavadi traversed the counties from Sunday to Tuesday.
Uhuru concluded his vote-hunting mission on Tuesday at Gusii stadium where he was endorsed by former cabinet minister Simeon Nyachae.
Kitutu Masaba ODM parliamentary candidate Timothy Bosire said preparations for Raila's rally are complete.
"We are expecting the PM on Friday. Kisii and Nyamira will vote overwhelmingly for him," Bosire told the Star on phone.
This is the second for Raila to Kisii in less than a month. Majority of presidential aspirants have camped in the region seeking the more than 600, 000 votes.
Eagle Coalition's Peter Kenneth toured Nyamira last week for a series of rallies.
In an earlier visit, Raila declared Kisii a Cord zone and dismissed claims that the region is up for grabs.
