Opposition leaders led by Raila Odinga have taken the National Super Alliance campaigns to Tharaka Nithi County in what is seen as a calculated move to redirect the tide in a perceived a Jubilee stronghold.
The team will hold rallies in Mukothima, Mkondi, Gatunga, Marimanti and Marima.
The charm offensive in the entire Ameru region started yesterday in Meru County where Odinga and Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka addressed several rallies.
The NASA Group has a passionate plea to the Ameru people to give the coalition a chance to reform the country.
Odinga described the current state of the country as broken and sick accusing the government of launching projects that were not budgeted for in a bid to have something to show for the four years in office.
Musyoka on the other hand urged Meru residents to help end tribalism and non-inclusiveness in Government.
The two leaders blamed the Jubilee government for the plight of Miraa farmers, who they said were suffering in the wake of a ban on the produce sales in European markets.
Meanwhile, major political parties and coalitions are facing a bigger headache managing the forthcoming primaries.
Popular parties have attracted huge numbers of aspirants for various elective seats.
Several politicians sensing defeat in the primaries have decamped to smaller parties to ensure they are on the ballot on August 8th.
To reduce a backlash of the nominations, some parties are considering collaborating with the IEBC to conduct the primaries for transparency.
In Trans -Nzoia County, the NASA branch has released its Line-up of how the affiliate parties will share the elective positions.
The Gubernatorial seat will be left for Ford Kenya Party, Deputy Governor- ODM Party while Amani National Congress candidate will go for the Senatorial seat.
The branch says they will hold NASA joint Nominations to ensure that their votes are not split.
