The BBI campaign was back on the road and made it’s way to Narok County.
Narok became the fifth place to play host to the BBI rally after the campaign first started in Kakamega County.
Kenyans in huge numbers flocked to the Narok stadium for the much-anticipated event where ODM leader Raila Odinga was the guest.

Before addressing the BBI proposals by the leaders from the region, Raila was given a brief moment to address the crowd.
The ‘Chungwa’ party leader indicated that among the changes to be administered in the area, would be the renaming of the stadium to Ole Ntimama stadium.
Sports CS Amina Mohamed who was present during the forum, unveiled the placard with the name of the deceased leader.
Narok Stadium officially renamed William Ole Ntimama Stadium. This is in honour of the late politician. The official unveiling of the plaque bearing his name was performed by @RailaOdinga and Sports and Culture CS @AMB_A_Mohammed

On Friday, tension emerged as a delegate meeting in the area was marred with drama.
A section of leader stormed out of the meeting in which Raila was part of.
Narok Deputy Governor Evalyn Aruasa, Emurua Dikirr MP Johana Ng’eno and some MCAs walked out of the meeting after they claimed that the forum turned tribalistic.
Additional reports emerged that the daughter of the late Ntimama, Leah, proclaimed the position of governor and deputy belonged only to the Maasai community.
Leah was alleged to have later stated that Narok was on the wrong to have made a Kipsigis a deputy governor of the area.
