Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga on Friday stormed Deputy President William Ruto’s backyard – Uasin Gishu County, as he intensified his Azimio la Amani tours.

Raila started off with a meeting with delegates from 5 counties in the North Rift region where he expressed the need for the government to allocate sufficient funds to the Agriculture sector.

He said should he form the next government, he will ensure full implementation of the Maputo Declaration, which requires at least 10 percent of the national budget to be allocated to the sector.
